American Lung Association Health House

American Lung Association of Connecticut Health House logo

Health House is a program from the American Lung Association designed to promote and certify healthy building practices.

Being an American Lung Association program, the Health House guidelines focus primarily on the prevention of harmful airborne factors such as radon, mold, chemical fumes, smoke, and allergens. BPC Green Builders has the unique distinction of having built the first and only Certified American Lung Association Health House in Connecticut.  

The ALA Health House program is no longer a national program. It is currently managed by the upper midwest division of the ALA and only certifies homes in certain midwestern states. They no longer certify homes outside of their area.

However, today, most major green home building certification programs require high indoor air quality (IAQ) standards are achieved for certification. One such set of standards is the US Environmental Protection Agency Indoor airPLUS certification program.

All BPC homes built today meet green home certifications that include the EPA Indoor airPLUS certification or similar high indoor air quality requirements.

And BPC Homes are:



“We were surprised and delighted to find in Mike Trolle, of BPC Green Builders, a local builder who not only gave us the kind of house we wanted, but helped us figure out what that was in the first place. His ideas about what a house needs — and doesn’t need — were invaluable. He even helped us find an architect whose ideas were in sync with ours.”
Tom and Stacy, Westport, Connecticut
“We found your expertise in building science to be of great help in planning the project and in the selection of appropriate equipment and materials. BPC’s management of the subcontractors and communication with us always met our expectations. Moreover, BPC was conscientious and ethical in all aspects of the work. We would be pleased to recommend BPC without reservation.”
Christine and Monte, Bethany, Connecticut
"As architects, it has also been a sincere pleasure to work for Mike. He is an extraordinary client who has been able to utilize our skills and experience. The working relationship that we have developed is based upon trust and confidence, and has been tested by the realities and trials of construction.”
Thomas RC Hartman, AIA, Coldham Architects LLC
“BPC is in the forefront of this commitment. Our company has benefited from our professional and personal interaction with Mike and Chris Trolle. From client introduction to final walk through, the drive for total customer satisfaction is clear.”
Dean Demague, B & D Controlled Air Corporation
