Bangkok, Thailand, 5 July 2021 – During this pandemic, it comes as no surprise that most of us are spending most of our time indoors. Many of us have no choice but to be confined in our homes. But in our rooms, how can we be sure that our health is safe?
Contrary to what you might think, staying indoors could be even worse for your health because when we breathe, we produce what is known as “human-produced carbon dioxide”. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) improper ventilation can cause a buildup of droplets or aerosol particles, released into the air when they exhale, that can increase your risk of contracting airborne diseases.
The EPA also points to dirty and polluted indoor air is a major cause of what is known as sick building syndrome (SBS). Poor indoor air quality gives rise to the symptoms of SBS including headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 52 percent of indoor air quality problems can be fixed by proper ventilation. This will improve your quality of life, increase comfort, and productivity.
Proper ventilation supplies us with enough oxygen, especially in bedrooms, that give us a pleasant day and good night’s sleep. ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) recommends in the ASHRAE62.1 standard that homes have no less than 9 cubic meter of air per hour (CMH) per person. Requirements also vary according to activity levels. A study by the Technical University of Denmark found that lower CO2 levels, due to open windows or fans, resulted in increased perceived freshness of bedroom air, as well as an improved ability to concentrate and perform the next day.
