BREATHE CLEAN, HEALTHY AIR
The bad environment in our households starts with polluted air from the outdoors, which is often not cycled effectively in and out of tightly sealed and energy-efficient homes. Then we mix in other chemicals: pesticides, perhaps cigarette smoke, air fresheners, hairspray, perfume and cleaning supplies. Thrown into the invisible concoction are the gases given off by furnishings or paint. Add animal dander, dust mites and mold – and suddenly there’s new meaning to the term the fresh outdoors. As a nation, we are completely unaware of the toxins we are inhaling every day. That is why SolarVenti was developed; to ensure your homes, investments and families are fully protected.
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.
Mould and dry rot thrive in moist conditions and can be harmful to furniture, buildings and even people. Damp and mould are caused by excess moisture. Moisture in buildings can be caused by a number of problems, including leaking pipes, rising damp or rain seeping in because of damage to your roof. There are a number of things you can do to prevent the build up of mould and condensation however Solarventi is a proven, efficient and successful way to ensure you protect your home and the people in it.
