BOISE, Idaho, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Healthy House Institute (http://www.healthyhouseinstitute.com) wants to ensure that everyone's home is a clean, safe place, not just a habitation.

The following Healthy House Institute books are available immediately:

  • Creating a Healthy Household: The Ultimate Guide for Healthier, Safer, Less-toxic Living
  • Healthy House Answer Book: Answers to the 133 Most Commonly Asked Questions
  • Healthy House: How to Buy One, How to Build One, How to Cure a Sick One
  • Healthy House Building: A Design & Construction Guide

Many homes today provide a refuge for hidden dangers and problems: dust, mold, allergens, bad air, bad water and wasted energy. The Healthy House Institute offers solutions for identifying and reducing these dangers. Home allergens and poor indoor air quality represent one of the biggest problems, particularly in fall and winter, when air becomes trapped within the home. Tainted water is another serious concern, and the institute offers suggestions for treatment and filtering methods when drinking water becomes too heavy or laden with minerals or other contaminants.

As part of its mission, the Healthy House Institute promotes green living and sustainable energy practices. These practices include energy-efficient windows, doors, insulation, lighting and appliances. With a moderate up-front investment, energy efficiency quickly pays for itself. Green living includes making product choices that reduce one's carbon footprint and create fewer, or no, toxic waste materials. 

"People spend 65 percent of their time in their homes," said Healthy House Institute President Allen P. Rathey. "The health and safety of indoor environments, especially homes, cannot be overstated. Our vision of a healthy home is one that positively impacts every facet of society, including public health to environmental stewardship. From new home construction to remodeling and restoration, the Healthy House Institute provides resources and guidance for each stage in a home's life cycle."

The Healthy House Institute offers articles, blogs and links that touch on every aspect of healthy living spaces. The library of information is conveniently organized by category and type, while a search box offers quick sorting by keyword. Users can receive updates regarding new content of interest via RSS feeds.
