Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the quality and the health of the air inside buildings such as homes, work places, and even schools. Healthy air contains few pollutants and allergens. Controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce the risk of health concerns.
There are many pollutants present in the home, generated from simple and everyday activities like cooking with gas, spraying cleaning and beauty products, and even using air fresheners. Without adequate ventilation, these pollutants remain trapped inside the home where, over time, they can have a serious impact on our health. Long-term exposure a damp environment or polluted air is linked to serious health conditions including asthma, respiratory infections, lung disease and heart disease.
The most energy-efficient and effective method of cleaning up indoor air in existing homes is mechanical extract ventilation. Nuaire recommends Positive Input Ventilation as it tackles poor IAQ and prevents condensation.
