Due to the structural solutions of the house (autoclaved aerated concrete from floor to ceiling, ventilation scaled appropriately), the indoor air of the house is good.
A foundation with a crawl space is also a radon-safe foundation solution when the joints and feedthroughs of the base floor are tightly sealed and the crawl space has proper ventilation. Indeed, the completed radon measurement (2015) indicated an exceptionally low radon level (50 Bq/m3 in the living room and 60 Bq/m3 in the multipurpose room). This is despite the fact that the house has been constructed on a gravel/sand ridge.
The indoor temperature also remains constant regardless of the season and outdoor temperature.
