How to create healthy
living spaces

When we spend as much as 90% of our lives inside, the quality of the air within our living spaces is important for maintaining not only comfort but also our health.  An optimum, stable humidity and room temperature contributes significantly to our wellbeing.


Healthy Living - Better Living

Humans consume up to 13.5 kg of room air and only 1.5kg of fresh air per day – with so much time spent indoors, the quality of the air is important. Humidity, purity and temperature all have a decisive influence on our quality of life and thus our health. To save energy, our homes are becoming denser.

To ensure that the indoor air remains ‘healthy’ and does not affect our well-being, attention must be paid to the quality and function of the building materials we use. These usually stay in the building forever so must not give off any pollutants, because bad air can affect our health.

The right air humidity is essential

With a focus on conserving energy, our living spaces have become increasingly ‘airtight’, and insufficient ventilation on walls can lead to condensation and a build-up of mildew. Unsuitable building materials can make a considerable contribution towards achieving stable humidity and room temperature, which can in turn after our health and well being.
