Ventilation for the home to
improve indoor air quality
The average person in the UK spends 90% of their time indoors, with 70% being within the home. Yet, at the risk of inadequate ventilation, homes are being made as airtight as possible in order to keep down heating bills through the retention of warm air.
Care Homes and Sheltered Buildings
The air changes within care homes and sheltered buildings will depend upon which areas of the building occupants are located at a particular time, with individual rooms naturally requiring lower air changes than communal areas. Effective ventilation is best provided by reducing air leakage, extracting moisture and pollutants at source, and providing occupant controllable ventilation.

Apartments require a large number of individual units for kitchens and bathrooms as well as larger units able to properly ventilation corridors, hallways, lifts and communal areas.
