Cleaner air for everyone
Often, the problems with our indoor climate are caused by an abnormal accumulation of moist in the furniture and structure of the house - thereby also affecting the air we breathe every day. We quite simply build and insulate our houses more and more to keep the expensive heat inside the building and forget that we thereby reduce the air flow and increase the air humidity. The simple solution to high air humidity has always been and still is proper airing. However, traditional venting through exterior doors, windows and air shafts involves loss of heat and heat costs money.
In a recent study, it was claimed that at least 12 million Brits now suffer from allergies caused in their own home. Allergy UK said that people can be allergic to their own home and therefore could be classed as household allergy sufferers. The main cause of indoor allergies or “home fever” are house dust mites. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that survive well in warm damp conditions such as the average UK home. They are commonly found in carpets, upholstered furniture, fabrics and toys. While they are completely harmless to most people, in some they can trigger an allergic reaction.
Have you ever suffered from an asthma attack in extremely dry conditions? When it's too dry and your asthma flairs up, there seems like nothing can help alleviate that cough-inducing tickle in your throat. However, SolarVenti can prevent it from getting worse. With a SolarVenti, we can prevent ‘home fever’ and manage asthma. By reducing the bad air build up inside your home, we can ensure you and your family have cleaner and clearer air to breathe. Your home is your castle – therefore it is important we ensure it really is safe for you all.
Radon is a radioactive, colourless and odourless noble gas, which occurs naturally as the decay product of radium. It is a health hazard due to its radioactivity and it is responsible for the majority of main public exposure to ionising radiation. Also, it is often the single largest contributor to an individual's background radiation dose, and is the most variable from location to location.
Radon produces a radioactive dust in the air we breathe. The dust is trapped in our airways and emits radiation that damages the inside of our lungs. This damage, like the damage caused by smoking, increases our risk of lung cancer. However, with a SolarVenti® ventilation system, 70-80% of radon gasses can be eliminated from your home.
For health reasons, it is important to maintain a proper humidity level in your home. While too little humidity can cause some discomfort issues, such as chapped lips as well as cracks in wooden furniture, the reverse side of the coin – too much moisture can make your home a breeding ground for mould and mildew, which can lead to some very serious health problems. Solar powered warm air from a SolarVenti panel which is being blown into a humid room will result in elimination of the humid air.
