HOME HEALTH IS BIG
Why It Matters
According to Homes for Health, the average person spends 65% of their entire life inside of their home. Every action in the home – cooking a meal, taking a shower, doing your laundry – directly affects the chemicals, moisture, and element balance in your home. Humans are surrounded and affected by the air we breathe, the surfaces we touch, and the environment around us. The basis of Home Health is taking all of these fundamentals into account and using that knowledge to then build a home that keeps your family healthy.
By using data driven building science, Sutter Homes builds healthy homes.

SCIENCE AND HOMES: A VITAL CORRELATION
Introducing The HOMEChem Experiment
HOMEChem: House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry. According to HOMEChem, people in the United States spend about 90% of their time indoors, including buildings and vehicles. This experiment, taken place in June of 2018, was intended to identify the most important aspects of chemistry that control the indoor environment.
Science and Data
The HOMEChem Experiment worked to gather data about the chemistry of the indoor environment. By understanding the science of the indoors, the construction field can begin to adopt more ways to build healthier homes. Sutter Homes stays at the forefront of this movement by using data-driven science, cutting-edge technology, and constantly re-educating based on the latest science.
