BBC report pollutant warning in modern ‘airtight’ homes.
Today the BBC reported on the growing concerns about the air quality in modern homes, particularly those approaching airtight. We are glad to see that this problem is reaching mainstream attention. The need for ventilation has always existed but unfortunately this basic need has been often neglected or misunderstood in construction. This problem will continue to affect people in the UK and Ireland as we continue to build better, more airtight homes and homeowners continue to be uninformed about the increased need for ventilation.
Visitors to our website and readers of this blog will hopefully be better aware that ventilation improves the air quality in their home and that the use of heat recovery in the ventilation systems will significantly reduce the heat loss in the ventilation process.
