Welcome Ultra-Aire, newest EarthCraft Virginia Sponsor!
We are thrilled to welcome Ultra-Aire Whole House Dehumidifiers to the EarthCraft Virginia family as a program sponsor. Controlling humidity inside the home is essential for whole home comfort, reducing health risks, and protecting the structure of the home and its contents, and the use of systems such as these can make a lot of sense in tight, energy-efficient EarthCraft-certified homes. Ultra-Aire dehumidifiers provide superior indoor air quality through fresh air ventilation and humidity control.
