About the Indoor airPLUS Mobile App
The Indoor airPLUS mobile app is primarily intended for use by builder and verifier partners in the field at new home construction sites. Users can review the current Indoor airPLUS Construction Specifications and complete and email the Verification Checklist via their mobile device.
Prospective homebuyers can also use the app to learn more about the advantages of living in an Indoor airPLUS home.
Indoor airPLUS is a partnership between EPA. builders, Raters, and other stakeholders to improve indoor air quality in new homes.
Note: Internet access is required to access most, but not all, of the features of the Indoor airPLUS mobile app.
Creating and Completing Verification Checklists
Access your verification checklists by clicking on the Checklists button on the bottom of any page in the app. On the My Checklists page, start a new checklist by clicking on the “plus” (+) sign at the top left of the page. Fill in the requested information for the home, Rater, and builder except for signatures and dates and click the SAVE button in the upper right hand corner of the page. You can continue with a previously started checklist by clicking on the address of the checklist you want to continue working on.
The blue menu bar at the top of each individual home checklist shows the options available for managing that checklist.
These include, from left to right,
- deleting a checklist,
- emailing a completed checklist,
- copying a checklist for easier data entry, and
- opening a checklist to begin or continue completing the sections of the checklist.
The copy button will copy all data entered for this checklist except an address. The delete key will completely remove any information entered for this checklist. The email key will create a .pdf and start an email so you can send a .pdf file of the completed verification checklist to a recipient of your choice.
Clicking on the checkmark button opens the full list of Indoor airPLUS Construction Specifications for that home.
The form uses on/off toggles that are used to verify the appropriate answer. Check one box per sub-section. Check N/A for specifications that do not apply for specific conditions. All entries are automatically saved as you complete the form.
Use the toggle buttons to check either builder or Rater for all other items to indicate who verified each item. Upon completing a checklist section use the BACK button to return to the beginning of the verification checklist or the forward or back arrows to move to a previous section or on to the next section in the checklist. Continue completing additional sections to complete the verification process.
Once completed, use the BACK button to go back to the initial verification form. Select the envelope email icon from the menu bar to generate a .pdf version of the form just completed and attach it to a new email in your email client. Identify a recipient to whom you will email the .pdf and be sure to copy yourself. Remember to sign and date completed checklists.
NOTE: Viewing completed checklists that have been emailed in .pdf format to an Apple mobile device requires the free Adobe Reader App from the iTunes App Store.
