A recent study carried out by the National Institute for Health and Welfare has revealed health concerns over poor ventilation and the impact of indoor allergens on disease and life expectancy. The study discusses how these issues pose a significant risk to our health and directly relate to illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, asthma and other respiratory conditions.
According to the study, in the UK alone, 15.3 million homes are at risk of ‘Toxic Home Syndrome’, which occurs when families are exposed to airborne pollutants due to poor ventilation, causing these respiratory conditions to occur more frequently.
Despite these health concerns, many homeowners are still unaware of the direct impact that poor ventilation can have on their health and wellbeing. However, these risks are preventable, and can be eliminated through natural ventilation. One of the easiest and inexpensive ways of improving the air-flow within a house is by the installation of roof windows and skylights.
So don’t be shy to flag up poor ventilation levels in your customers’ properties, and the health impact and damage that excess moisture can do to their homes! Investing in good quality roof windows and skylights could actually help them prevent health complications, and maintain a comfortable environment for their families.
