Man’s basic need includes Air, Food and Water. Man can survive for a longer time without food and water. But in the absence of air (oxygen), man can barely last than five minutes. This is why as much as emphasis is being given to good food and clean water, quality air holds a place of primacy in man’s physical wellbeing. We need quality fresh air to survive. In the olden days men lived more outside and had more acess to quality unpolluted fresh air. But the modern man does not have access to such air being exposed to polluted air, cramped poorly ventilated accommodations. However with a good ventilkitaing system installed in an occupied space, quality air can be provided.
Below Are Key Benefits Associated With the Installation of a Ventilating System?
- Air Regulation: A ventilation system not only makes quality air available, it also regulates the airflow in the building, making it available in every corner of the building, constantly the ventilation system replaces the hot air within with fresh air from outside.
- Control of Impurities: With a good ventilation system, air contaminants trapped indoor air are expelled. The air indoor is far polluted than the one outside. Such air contaminants that have debilitating effect to the health such bacteria, moisture and nasty whiffs are expelled from the air available for use.
- Stops Condensation and dampening effect: Condensation refers to a situation when humid air is cooled quickly and cannot hold all of the moisture as water vapor. The effect of this is that when moisture indoor is not controlled, it can result to cases of peeling wallpaper, mold and mildew formation. It could also lead to damage in wood furniture’s around the home. Good ventilation helps reduce the effect of damp conditions and condensation. Damp conditions often lead to health issues such as allergic reactions and serious respiratory problems. Condensation can cause molds and rotten surfaces.
- Temperature Reduction: The primary function of a ventilation system is to provide thermal comfort for people in an indoor space. When people are crammed in a space, the ambient environment becomes stuffy and hot which leads to discomfort of occupants in the room. Such conditions often lead to demotivation in the workplace and low productivity. But with a good ventilation system planned in the building, such discomfort is dealt with.
- Prevention of Health Conditions: Certain health problems are prone to occur as a result of polluted indoor air. Air pollution and poor ventilation system indoor can lead illnesses such as headaches, allergies, asthma, rashes and sinusitis. All these can be prevented with the installation of very good ventilation system. Mostly damp conditions or moldy environment can cause respiratory conditions. Damp areas also provide breeding ground for dust mites which are agents of eczema, itching, and breathing problems.
- Protection of Furniture: Mold causes furniture to depreciate in value and life span. With a good ventilation system, unwanted moisture and molds caused by humid environment are gotten rid of.
Finally, a good ventilation system is important for both physiological, psychological, and emotional wellbeing.
