You deserve comfort. The buildings at Solara were designed and built with your comfort in mind. They feature energy efficient, draft-free and sound mitigating design and construction that assures comfort and quietness. A highly-advanced fresh-air ventilation system monitors and manages the air in your apartment to assure a healthy living space. Hard surface flooring throughout minimizes dust and allergens. In addition, each apartment is EPA Indoor Air Plus certified.
FRESH AIR VENTILATION
Each apartment receives continuous fresh air from a device called a Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV). An ERV supplies continuous fresh air to each apartment resulting in a much healthier living space. During the winter this system recovers the energy from the warm, outgoing air. That recovered energy is used to heat the cold incoming air. In the summer, the process is reversed with the incoming air being cooled by the outgoing air. Therefore the heat recovery ventilator can supply fresh air to the apartments without significant loss of energy to the outside.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
The quality of the air that you breathe in your home is vitally important to your health and wellbeing. EPA studies show that levels of many indoor air pollutants can be two to five times higher than outdoor levels. These pollutants are typically emitted from building materials and finishes. And since most people spend close to 90% of their time indoors, keeping indoor pollution levels as low as possible is the right thing to do. You can breathe easy knowing the apartments at Solara were built to the strict quality standards of the EPA Indoor Air Plus Certified program.
