Poor ventilation is a growing problem, affecting one in five homes in the UK. If your home is poorly ventilated, you may notice streaming windows, the appearance of black mould on walls and furnishings, and musty smells.
Why is indoor air quality important?
Having poor indoor air quality can be damaging to our health, as recent studies have discovered that as many as 40,000 early deaths each year are the result of air pollution, with long term exposure linked to lung cancer, heart disease, asthma and stroke.Here are lists of units that will make your home a breath of fresh air:
Having the right ventilation in your home
Condensation dampness is the major indoor air pollutant caused by modern living. It can affect both older and new-build homes equally. Steps we take to make our homes warmer and more energy-efficient, such as installing cavity wall and loft insulation and double-glazing, can help reduce heating bills. But as a result, the humid and stale air becomes trapped inside the home, causing a build-up of moisture and pollutants.
So, what’s the solution?
Adequate ventilation will help cut condensation and rid your home of pollutants, creating a fresh and healthy indoor environment. Nuaire offers a range of energy-efficient solutions to significantly improve your indoor air quality.
Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) is the UK’s most popular method of low-energy, whole home ventilation and Nuaire is proud to have invented this technology in 1972s. PIV brings a continuous supply of fresh, filtered air into the home through positive pressurisation, creating an environment in which condensation and mould can’t exist and helping to reduce allergens and radon gas levels. Nuaire has low-energy PIV options for homes with or without lofts.
