For more than a century we have understood the importance of breathing clean air for our health and well-being. This has led to precautions to avoid pollutants and allergens in metro areas, and harsh punishments on those who breach them. But, there is one hidden health danger that is going unnoticed far too often.
Breathing in Danger: CO2’s Hidden Health Hazards
Most people associate CO2 with outdoor pollution and climate change, and rightfully so, as it is a significant hazard. However, it also has a significant impact on our health when indoors.
In fact, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor CO2 levels can be up to five times higher than outdoor levels, posing a silent threat to our health.
Being exposed to high levels of C02 for prolonged periods has detrimental impacts on our health which is flying under the radar due to outdated building standards.
Without adequate ventilation systems, like trickle vents, the C02 levels can lead to serious health complications like respiratory or metabolic alkalosis, Cushing’s syndrome, or worse – hormonal disorders.
Due to this, the need for adequate ventilation for your home has never been greater.
The Power of Ventilation: Keeping CO2 at Bay for Better Health
The key to maintaining healthy levels of C02 in our living spaces is through proper ventilation. It seems simple enough to achieve, but you may be surprised.
Achieving healthy levels of C02 often requires additional ventilation systems, like trickle vents, which have become known to regulatory bodies and have made them mandatory in some areas.
There are numerous benefits to increasing your ventilation beyond their health benefits.
The additional benefits of adding ventilation:
- Controlled Humidity Levels: Ventilation aids in controlling humidity levels, preventing the growth of mold and mildew which can lead to many health issues.
- Enhanced Comfort: Well-ventilated spaces are more comfortable, providing a refreshing indoor environment that is neither overly humid nor excessively dry.
- Energy Efficiency: Ventilation systems, particularly those designed for heat recovery, can contribute to energy efficiency by reducing the need for heating or cooling.
Trickle Vents: Your Shield Against CO2’s Health Risks
From the evidence, it’s clear that adequate ventilation is an essential aspect of mitigating C02’s health risks.
One effective way to ensure proper ventilation in our homes and buildings is by installing trickle vents. These small, discreet vents on windows and doors allow for a constant flow of fresh air while keeping unwanted substances out. Without trickle vents it is almost close to impossible to ensure CO2 levels not to reach harmful levels as it would be necessary to ventilate rooms every 30 minutes.
However, there are numerous trickle vent option, many of which require extensive installation processes which can lead to damage to your property and not all of them would even fit your windows.
This is where Ventsys trickle vents come into play. This innovative product is specifically designed to maximize ventilation and airflow, whilst mitigating installation damage. Keeping CO2 levels at bay whilst ensuring your property remains in great condition.
