A clean and healthy indoor climate
An indoor climate is more than just indoor air. In addition to indoor air, the indoor climate is comprised of, for example, the temperature, air humidity, carbon dioxide level, and the sound environment.
A good indoor climate is something that you don’t necessarily notice. You cannot see, smell, taste, hear, or feel it. You do not need to pay attention to it.
The quality of the indoor climate is of great significance to our well-being. After all, we do spend most of our lives indoors: at home, work, or school.
You tend to notice a poor indoor climate when you enter one.
A poor indoor climate can be detected, for example, from:
- unpleasant smells
- stuffy air
- an excessively high carbon dioxide content
- a draught
- an excessively hot or cold indoor temperature
Symptoms caused by a poor indoor climate include respiratory problems, eye irritations, headaches and fatigue. Those experiencing respiratory symptoms, children, and the elderly are often more prone to suffer from a poor indoor climate. A poor indoor climate can make the most sensitive people seriously ill.
A good indoor climate is healthy for both the occupants and the structures of a house. A good indoor climate is not too dry, nor too humid. It is just right and, thus, unnoticeable.
And this is regardless of the external conditions.
The quality of the indoor climate is maintained with ventilation.
