BEAMA is launching a new video as part of its ongoing ‘My Health My Home’ campaign, aimed at driving public awareness of the risks of poor indoor air quality and a lack of ventilation, in response to rising symptoms of poor air in UK homes.

A recent poll of UK homeowners, commissioned by BEAMA, has shown that 65 per cent of people had experienced the signs of poor indoor air quality while 80 per cent believed indoor air quality was as important (if not more important) than outdoor.

The video has been produced to inform homeowners of the benefits of ventilation in helping to achieve good indoor air quality, as well as warning of the health risks associated with poor indoor air quality –  including asthma, allergy, and long-term exposure is linked to heart disease and respiratory problems including lung cancer. With 73 per cent of those surveyed in agreement that poor indoor quality should be a health priority for government, BEAMA are most definitely onto something.

Colin Timmins of BEAMA said: “While we are working with industry and Government to deliver better ventilation systems in UK homes, householders also need to be aware of the impact they are having on their own indoor air, what this could mean for them and the steps they can take to improve it.”
