Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?

Breathing in fresh, clean air indoors is critical for good health. We spend around 90% of our time indoors so it's important to ensure the air we're breathing is clean.

Breathing quality indoor air is critical for good health. Most spend a significant amount of time indoors—either in the home, office or other types of buildings—where gases, chemicals and other pollutants can cause headaches, eye irritation, allergies and fatigue.

Breathing is our first instinctive action and the most natural thing we do, over 20,000 times a day in fact. When we start to think about the air we breathe and the quality of the air we are breathing we tend to think about the pollution in the air outdoors caused by carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides from vehicles and factories.


However, the air inside our homes can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors. The majority of people recognise the health concerns around outdoor air pollution, but few people consider the potential dangers around the exposure to poor indoor air quality despite it having the same negative health effects.

The Environmental Protection Agency is an independent agency of the United States federal government for environmental protection. However, in Britain we have the Environment Agency which is a government agency set up to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development.


There can be up to 900 toxins polluting the quality of our indoor air and over 81% of people are at risk of respiratory or dermatological conditions due to poor indoor air quality so it is important to think about how this may be affecting our health and look at ways to improve the air indoors.

These indoor air pollutants can have serious long term health effects on our bodies. We know there is a direct correlation between smoking and health effects like heart disease, however indoor pollution can also cause respiratory problems. 


The Benefits of Ventilation

A HVAC system is a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system. A system that does any one (or more) of those tasks is called a HVAC system. The objective of an HVAC system is to ensure that an indoor environment is both safe and comfortable for humans.

Installing a proper ventilation system in your home will not only drastically improve the pollutant levels it will also improve the humidity levels, by reducing both your home will be much healthier.  

Our ventilation systems draw in and circulate fresh air throughout your property, improving the indoor environment. The systems work by fresh air entering from outside, entering through an air exchange then filtering, then displacing throughout the property. As the fresh air circulates negative indoor air particles like dust mites and pollen are filtered out of the property.

Ensure The Air In Your Home Is Safe

The quality of the air inside our homes often gets overlooked, you can't see the problem so why look into a solution? However the benefits of ensuring your home has the best indoor air quality can vastly improve the health of the inhabitants and stop any potential side-affects.
