Key Factors for Dwelling Ventilation
What are the main cause of pollutants? In Short we are washing, cooking, cleaning, using aerosols and breathing. These factors contribute to pollutants which in turn impact the quality of air in homes and eventually the health of the occupants.
Good ventilation will help to deal with these pollutants.
Condensation, mould and damp.
Condensation and mould have long been issues in housing and the need to safeguard against them has significantly increased. When people discover they have a damp or mould problem, often they will purchase a dehumidifier. Unfortunately a dehumidifier will not ventilate a home , can consume large amounts of electricity, be noisy and require regular maintenance by having to empty condensates. It is estimated that by bathing, showering, cooking and drying clothes equates to four pints of moisture per person per day. Unable to notice this moisture in the air, it will first become evident when it comes into contact with cold surfaces, which it condenses onto. This is why a significant amount of condensation occurs overnight as the fabric of the building cools.
Dust mites breed in the humid environment found in homes which are poorly ventilated. Clinical evidence suggests that exposure to high concentrations of allergens associated with the house dust mites over a prolonged period can trigger allergic symptoms such as rhinitis, conjunctivitis and eczema. Repeated exposure to these allergens can lead to asthma. The severity of the asthma intensifies when humidity, house dust mites and mould levels are increased. Clinical research has proven that whole home ventilation can play a significant part in controlling dust mite allergens. (CoolZone Solutions does not claim that the use of their ventilation products will cure asthma nor eliminate asthma attacks).
