Study and advice for air quality indoor to protect health and improve people’s quality of life.
It is estimated that in urban areas of western countries we spend between 80% and 90% of our lives indoors. According to the WHO, 20% of buildings in these countries suffer from “Sick Building Syndrome” (SBS), caused by the poor indoor air quality and poor ventilation. The agents that deteriorate the quality of the indoor air are chemical pollutants (carbon dioxide -CO2-, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide -CO- and radon among others) and biological (viruses, bacteria, mold).
Increasing air quality indoor (by controlling CO2, using specific filters, or controlling ventilation) also has benefits such as increased concentration, improved productivity and learning, and the feeling of well-being in the interior space.
Indoor air quality can also be certified by Breeam, Leed or Passivhaus certification, which ensure stipulated quality objectives.
