Indoor air quality in airtight homes

October 8, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

BEGINS the event blurb, about a best practice guide being issued by the Health Effects of Modern Airtight Construction (HEMAC) network and the Scottish Ecological Design Association (SEDA): “Making buildings airtight is good for comfort and energy efficiency, but it comes with risks to our health if not properly managed.

“Airtight homes can overheat, become too humid and suffer from mould and a number of indoor air pollutants which harm human health, especially in those more vulnerable such as children, the elderly and those with respiratory or immunity problems.

“Avoiding these problems is relatively simple however, and this new guide from HEMAC and SEDA describes how to minimise the creation of indoor air pollutants, and effectively ventilate them away, to create fresh and healthy buildings which are also warm and comfortable.”
