VENTILATION and the acoustics are two often ignored factors that define healthy houses and comfortable living. Here are some practical tips that can help you banish noise and air pollution in the home.
There are many substances that affect the air quality in a house: pollen, smoke, dust, mites, and odours to name a few. And if we consider that we spend about 20 hours a day indoors, it is important that the quality of the indoor air is as good as possible for our health, especially in 2020 with increasingly worrying amounts of pollution in our towns and cities.
The key is to use air filtration and purification systems to remove particles and possible contaminants, to rely on controlled mechanical ventilation systems that help renew the indoor air, or to use plants. In addition, today there are solutions such as intelligent paints, capable of providing reliable protection against moisture or harmful substances and prevent the formation of cracks and dirt.
Controlling noise can certainly lead to a quieter life, for both you and your neighbours.
In recent times, acoustic comfort has become a key element when renovating or building interior areas, since poor acoustic conditioning can affect the health and well-being of a person, causing sleep disturbance, rest disturbance or headaches.
What are the solutions? Apart from the possible need to install acoustic conditioning solutions in the home, it is also recommended that you use decorative elements to muffle sounds, such as carpets, curtains and upholstered furniture, as well as placing the bedrooms in the quieter areas of the house. Another option is to buy appliances that help muffle noise.
