Improves air quality.
Do you often feel under the weather at home? Do you frequently suffer from fatigue or headaches, or feel your house is stuffy? The solution could be as simple as better ventilation.
The average modern home is so well insulated that air doesn’t get in through gaps or cracks as it does with older buildings. While insulation is great for energy saving, it’s important to keep a building well-ventilated.
Everyday activities such as cooking or showering create moisture. Plants, pets and simply breathing contribute to air pollution inside the home. Lack of ventilation results in high humidity and carbon dioxide, which lead to problems such as coughing, headaches, fatigue, chronic colds, dehydration, asthma and allergies.
Factories and car exhausts also produce high levels of CO2 and other harmful substances in the air. Yet this air is cleaner than indoor air. Indoor air pollution is caused by cleaning agents, paint, fragrances, furniture and textiles. An air purifier ensures that unhealthy substances such as fine dust, pollen and mould are removed.
Good ventilation in your home benefits your health massively!
