Sustainable Spaces takes a holistic approach to home performance problems. SSI solutions fix the fundamental building problems that lead to indoor air quality issues such as Carbon Monoxide, Allergens, Dust, and Mold.  SSI finds that elevated CO levels are often the result of pressure problems in the house that prevent flues from functioning properly, back drafting combustion chemicals into the living spaces.  By addressing how all of the systems in a
home functions together, using scientific diagnostic testing, SSI can solve CO and health problems, improve comfort, and reduce energy bills by as much as 40%.  .
