BEAMA video aims to raise IAQ awareness as survey reveals concern amongst homeowners

Equipment association launches video as part of its ongoing My Health My Home campaign, as survey reveals 65 per cent of homeowners had experienced the signs of poor indoor air quality 

BEAMA has produced a video to inform homeowners of the benefits of ventilation in helping to achieve good indoor air quality, as part of its ongoing My Health My Home campaign.

The video follows BEAMA’s recent poll of UK homeowners, which found widespread concern about the risks of poor air quality. The survey found that 65 per cent of respondents had experienced the signs of poor indoor air quality; 80 per cent thought that IAQ was either ’more important to their health than outdoor air’ or ’as important’. In addition, 65 per cent said they would be willing to pay a small premium for a house with effective ventilation that maintained good air quality

Almost three quarters of respondents - 73 per cent - said that improving poor indoor air quality should be a health priority for the government.

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 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.”
