In the last 25 years, the number of new asthma cases in the UK has increased six fold among children and three to four fold in adults. Asthma now affects more than five million people in the UK and kills 1,500 a year. Poor ventilation causes high levels of humidity which in turn increases the levels of dust mites - a known trigger for asthma. As we build tighter homes and continue to ‘seal up’ existing ones the requirement for good ventilation is becoming paramount.

As we construct or refurbish our homes in-line with stringent building regulations to become more energy efficient, the improvements made by adding cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and double glazing can actually work against us. By implementing these various improvements we have effectively ‘sealed up’ our homes and by doing so create poor ventilation, which can lead to condensation problems and mould problems.
