The Vital Role of Air Quality in Your Home
Air Quality Matters
The air we breathe indoors has a direct impact on our well-being. And unfortunately, indoor air is up to 5x more polluted than outdoor air. Poor air quality can lead to a range of health issues, from allergies and respiratory problems to fatigue and headaches. Considering that we spend more than 90% of our lives indoors, ensuring the air is clean and fresh is crucial for our comfort and long-term health.

Fresh Air Intake: A Breath of Fresh Life
Fresh air intake is like a reset button for your indoor environment. It brings in outdoor air, dilutes indoor pollutants, and helps maintain balanced humidity levels. This constant exchange of air is essential for preventing stagnation and maintaining a healthy atmosphere. In new homes at Jubilee, the incorporation of fresh air intake systems ensures that you're always surrounded by cleaner air.
Filtering Out the Unwanted
Every home in Jubilee also features a MERV-13 Whole Home 4” Media Filter, which is a powerful ally in the fight against indoor pollutants. With its high-efficiency filtration, it captures particles as small as 0.3 microns, including allergens, dust, mold spores, and even some bacteria. This filter not only improves air quality but also reduces the strain on your HVAC system, leading to more efficient operation and potentially lowering energy costs.

From construction practices that minimize pollutants to the integration of advanced ventilation systems, an Indoor airPlus-rated home at Jubilee guarantees that you're living in an environment that promotes health and comfort.
