Improve your indoor air quality
Why we need to Ventilate
Modern dwellings are designed with increasingly reduced air infiltration rates, higher levels of insulation making them almost completely sealed.
Consequently the air inside can become moist, stale and generally stuffy and unpleasant to breathe. As we spend nearly 70% of our time at home we should be looking after our indoor air quality and environment.
Dampness is a huge problem in the U.K. Damaging to both humans, and to the fabric of buildings, condensation forms when the temperature of a surface (walls, mirror etc.) is below the dew point of the surrounding air. This leads to streaming windows and walls and ultimately to mould.
A variety of noxious and toxic gases can collect within a dwelling if not properly ventilated. All this can have a serious effect on health and well being if not considered as part of a ventilation strategy.
Everyone is aware of the need to reduce our carbon footprint. Managing the carbon emissions from dwellings will be the cornerstone of our Building Regulations until we reach a carbon zero dwelling.
The use of low energy motors without compromising on performance is Airflow's contribution to creating a carbon friendly environment.
Toxic Home Syndrome
However, as we spend more than 70% of our time indoors, modern family living means we are susceptible to the increasing effects of poor indoor air quality caused by airborne pollutants from mites, furnishings, odours and high levels of humidity from bathing, washing and drying. This can lead to a condition known as TOXIC HOME SYNDROME.
The good news is that the potentially harmful effects can be greatly reduced by installing quality ventilation from a quiet, low energy extractor fan to a whole house ventilation solution to filter your air and recycle waste heat.
