Did you know that children breathe more air than adults? That means they are more likely to be affected by any contaminants in the air. School pupils can feel tired and unwell if there isn’t enough fresh air coming into the classroom.
A lack of fresh air increases air pollutants which can lead to headaches, fatigue and eye and throat irritation. Clearly, this is undesirable for guests and staff. Fresh air prevents pollutants and reduces the risk of guests and staff feeling groggy, hot and unwell.
Natural ventilation improves your general quality of life which provides a healthier mind, body and positive sense of well-being. With this in mind, it’s clear to see how there is no better substitute for fresh air.
One of the major concerns on what impacts children’s performance in education is their school environment. Adequate indoor air quality depends on effective ventilation which provides cool, clean air and removes the build-up of pollutants.
In 2013/14, an estimated 1.2 million people in the UK suffered from an illness they believed was caused by work. You wake up in the morning, you feel well. You get to work and you sneeze and cough all day. Do you ever feel like your place of work is making you ill?
In hotels, one of the most common complaints are rooms that are too hot with windows that can’t be opened, warm and stuffy communal areas especially when the weather is very hot outside. Is air conditioning enough to keep the air fresh and to keep your hotel comfortable?
The average person consumes 2kg of food and water and breathes out approximately 1,200 litres of carbon dioxide every day. With that in mind — how does that then affect the air quality of where we spend a lot of our time and how important is ventilation?
Day-to-day work for hotel staff can be tiring with long and unsociable hours. When a human rights organisation brought to attention that when 100 room attendants at a top hotel in London were asked if they ever take medication, 84 said they took painkillers every morning.
