Ensure your homes stay healthy
Around 65% of homes in the Vietnam are estimated to suffer from poor indoor air quality because of inadequate ventilation. Effective ventilation helps to create a healthier indoor environment by preventing the build-up of airborne pollutants in the home. Our range of ventilation solutions can help you protect your family’s health in your home.
Ventilation can improve your indoor air quality
Problems caused by poor indoor air quality can affect not only the conditions of your house but, more importantly, your health. Not to worry, we’re here to help. By choosing a suitable Ventilation solution, you’ll be making a positive step to vastly improving your indoor air quality. Whether it’s a question of preventing mould growth in your bathroom or providing your entire house with clean, fresh air – we will have the answer.
Change the filters
Filters are essential to providing high levels of Indoor Air Quality within the home, the maintenance of these filters is vital to the function of any heat recovery unit. Over time, filters will collect dirt and debris and become much less effective at removing impurities – dirty/clogged filters will also reduce the flow of fresh air into the dwelling.
Condensation and mould
Everyday activities such as bathing, cooking, showering and even breathing generate moisture in the home which can lead to mould growth. Condensation is formed when moisture stored in the air (such as mist from a shower) meets a cold surface (such as a mirror or cold exterior wall). When it meets a cold surface, the air releases its moisture and leaves it behind; this is condensation and it is a key factor in mould growth. Mould growth appears on any damp surfaces such as plaster, wallpaper and timber. Food (dust), moisture and oxygen are all it needs to grow. Effective ventilation can extract the moisture before it forms condensation.
Everyday cleaning products can pollute the air in your home. Products in your home can emit airborne compounds, known as VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). They are an irritant to our bodies and contribute to conditions such as asthma and eczema. In severe cases VOC’s can even be linked to cancer. Chemicals such as Acetaldehyde, Benzene, and Formaldehyde are just some of the chemical compounds found in the home and can be found in common household products like air fresheners, washing detergents, polish and oven cleaners. A build-up of these pollutants in the air can cause ill health and is known as Toxic Home Syndrome. Without ventilation these pollutants could build up in the air in your home.
