rating systems: - minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) to tell how efficiently they pull particles from the air. MERV ratings range from 1 to 20; a system rated 7 or higher is about as effective as a HEPA filter. -clean air delivery rate (CADR) of at least 250
Get to know the rating systems. For in-duct air filters, look for the minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) to tell how efficiently they pull particles from the air. MERV ratings range from 1

wattage ratings measure how much electricity the bulb actually uses, not the amount of light it gives off. If you can afford it, use dimmers on every circuit for maximum control of light levels. It can compensate for overlamping (using a bulb with a too-high wattage for the fixture) as well.

Use damp-rated fixtures outdoors. Recessed lighting fixtures in eaves or verandas also need damp-location ratings. Any outdoor lighting that will be exposed to rain, water spray or snow requires a wet-location rating to prevent water from damaging the bulb inside the light.

resistance rating for tile -- look for A or B
Darker tile is better in terms of cleaning Go for A or B slip rating but know the higher the rating the more difficult to clean
A or B rated floor tile less
A or B rating is best more traction = harder to keep clean= maybe a darker color??
Large-format porcelain tile offers great traction underfoot, but not all porcelain tiles do. Look for a tile with a good slip resistance rating (A or B is best). Keep in mind that tile with traction is harder to clean
resistance rating (A or B is best). Keep in mind that tile with traction is harder to clean, so darker tile will look cleaner for longer.

shower's flow rate.Tip: If you have two thermostatic control valves, as in this shower, plan to use a higher-flow-rate drain. You can work out actual flow rates by calculating the capacity of the fixture with the pressure and size of the water lines. Do not leave this to chance — it's worth it to do the math
