HEQ8.2 Indoor Contaminant Control

EQc8.2 | Possible point


8.2 Indoor contaminant control (1 point each, maximum 2 points). Select from the following measures:

a. Design and install permanent walk-off mats at each entry that are at least 4 feet in length and allow accessibility for cleaning (e.g., grating with catch basin).

b. Design a shoe removal and storage space near the primary entryway, separated from living areas. This space may not have wall-to-wall carpeting, and it must be large enough to accommodate a bench and at least two pairs of shoes per bedroom.

c. Install a central vacuum system with exhaust to the outdoors. Ensure that the exhaust is not near any ventilation air intake.
