We spend up to 90% of our time indoors and around 16 hours a day in our homes, so it is unsurprising that poor indoor air quality is beginning to be recognised as a serious emerging public health crisis. The Royal College of Physicians warns that poor indoor air is responsible for thousands of deaths and healthcare costs in the order of tens of millions of pounds per year. As new and retrofitted homes continue to embrace innovation to become ever more airtight and energy efficient, due consideration needs to be given to quality of the air inside our homes and buildings. In his closing keynote at EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2H 2019, BEAMA’s Colin Timmins presented the case for action and the role played by increasingly smarter ventilation technologies in delivering healthy air in the modern home environment.
