BEAMA launches new IAQ video

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 (IAQ) 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 percent had experienced the signs of poor IAQ in their home.
  • 80 percent of respondents thought that IAQ was either as important to their health or more important than outdoor air.
  • 65 percent would be willing to pay a small premium for a house with effective ventilation that maintained good IAQ.
  • 73 percent thought that poor IAQ should be a health priority for government.

The video has been produced to inform homeowners of the benefits of ventilation in helping to achieve good IAQ, as well as warning of the health risks associated with poor indoor air quality, such as asthma, allergies, heart disease and respiratory problems including lung cancer.

BEAMA has long campaigned for improved IAQ through its ‘My Health My Home’ campaign, aimed at raising awareness of poor indoor air and improving education on how to combat it through the use of properly installed, effective and well-maintained ventilation.

Colin Timmins of BEAMA said: “Poor indoor air quality is an issue that could have serious health consequences if we do not act together – as homeowners, industry and government. While we are working with industry and the 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.”
