During and even after the current coronavirus pandemic, the ventilation sector can help make buildings healthier to aid in the fight against viruses, says David Cook, technical product manager for a National Ventilation Company.
As a virus, there is still much to learn about Covid-19 and unfortunately, a lot of information is raising anxiety levels for the public.
Ventilation is seen as playing a potential role to help with overall well-being in properties at a time when millions are being asked to self-isolate in their homes, alongside following advice on social distancing and the importance of regular and thorough handwashing when leaving and arriving at a property.
David Cook says that even without the current government demands for as many UK citizens to stay home as possible – except for a single form of daily exercise, or to get essential food and medicines – the public already spends an estimated 80 to 90 per cent of their time indoors.
A building’s indoor air quality (IAQ) will clearly, therefore, have a significant effect on their health and wellbeing.
