The Environmental Protection Agency seeks feedback on a voluntary label that builders can use on homes meeting exemplary specifications for indoor air quality. Starting with the Energy Star criteria as a prerequisite, the specifications include a wide range of construction materials, practices and equipment designed to improve indoor air quality as well as moisture control, comfort and durability.

The draft specifications, introductory material and a comment area can be found at www.epa.gov. The deadline for comments is March 12.
