The importance of air quality
Clean air ventilation systems can improve the health and wellbeing of you and your family, your staff and customers. The air we breathe can contain many pollutants. It is now more important than ever to have air flow that is clean, fresh and free of contaminants, both at home and at your place of work or business. Poor air quality can have a huge impact on health and wellbeing, both in the long and short term. Poor air quality has been shown to cause symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, poor concentration plus irritation of the eyes, nose, mouth, throat and lungs. Not only this, but it can also worsen conditions such as asthma and also many allergies. Constant exposure to certain indoor contaminants can also be attributed to causing certain cancers, strokes and even diabetes.
What can affect indoor air quality?
Many factors can affect the quality of indoor air. These can include poor ventilation, humidity, mould, damp, temperature and indoor pollutants. Indoor pollutants can come in many forms and include:
- Cleaning products such as air fresheners and bleaches
- Dust, especially while carrying out renovation works
- Wood burning stoves
- Paint fumes
- Mould and damp
- Radon, a natural gas that has been shown to cause long term health conditions
How can I improve indoor air quality?
Adequate ventilation and air flow are paramount in improving indoor air quality. This can sometimes be achieved by simply opening windows and doors. However, this isn’t always practical, especially during winter months.
It is often much more beneficial to install an air conditioning system with clean air ventilation. This will help maintain a constantly high level of indoor air quality.
Our clean air ventilation systems are highly efficient and are proven to filter out up to 99% of viruses, bacteria and mould whilst providing constant ventilation. Not only this, but they also maintain optimum levels of humidity whilst keeping a consistent desired temperature throughout.
