Over the last few years, the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted just how quickly viruses can spread in an indoor environment if there’s not enough ventilation. 

The UK has become much more aware of how important good air quality is in preventing the spread of infections, however, most households and commercial buildings are yet to invest in effective ventilation units.

We spend a lot of time indoors, especially in winter

People naturally spend more time indoors in the winter months due to the chilly temperatures outside, meaning that diseases such as colds, flu and Covid can easily be transmitted, with people often in close proximity to one another.

Without good, effective ventilation and air flow, respiratory illnesses are allowed to spread very easily in enclosed spaces. As people breathe, they release virus particles into the air, which then move around the space and are easily breathed in by other people. 

The likelihood of another individual becoming infected is very high without ventilation - which can prove dangerous, especially if there are vulnerable people such as children or the elderly within your household.

Viruses spread easily without ventilation

Airborne diseases are essentially bacteria or viruses that are most commonly transmitted through small respiratory droplets in the air. These droplets will enter the air via an infected person when they cough, sneeze or laugh. These infected droplets can linger in the air for some time, meaning that without ventilation, they’re likely to be inhaled by someone else.

Unfortunately, airborne diseases are very easily transmitted. They can travel over six feet and remain infectious in the air for up to several hours, which is why ventilation is absolutely key to preventing illness. For example, if you went into a bathroom where someone had previously coughed a few minutes before, or if you work close to someone who has a cold, you could be in danger of becoming infected.

Here’s how our ventilation systems work

The most effective way to reduce your risk of contracting illnesses within your home or office environment is through whole-house/whole-office ventilation. 

An MVHR system will work to extract dirty, infected air particles from your home or office and replace it with fresh, heated air from the outside via a duct network, working for the full 24 hours in a day.

The central unit of the system will automatically control and monitor air quality, and make any adjustments necessary to ensure a continuous stream of fresh, ventilated air throughout at all times. 

Our ventilation experts are on hand to answer any questions you may have, and to provide support and guidance with all of our ventilation systems.
