‘Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and Ventilation’  is a one hour webinar on Wednesday 20th July 2016 at 13:00 pm

‘Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and Ventilation’ is a CPD by Vent-Axia, which is accredited by the Construction CPD Certification Service. Visit http://www.voltimum.co.uk/ventaxiawebinar to sign up for the CPD webinar hosted by Voltimum. 

The webinar explains why it is essential to ventilate, the problems caused by poor indoor air quality, the regulatory requirements for ventilation, as well as highlighting ventilation solutions.

Key issues on indoor air quality

Recent studies prove the quality of the air we breathe is critical, which is why leading British ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia is to present a crucial ‘Continuous Professional Development’ CPD webinar on ‘The Future of Indoor Air Quality’.

Currently, 40,000 people are dying in the UK every year due to air pollution and, if things don’t improve, it’s thought that by 2050 the number of people suffering with asthma could increase by 80% from current levels.

These sobering figures come from the latest indoor air quality research and form part of Vent-Axia’s CPD webinar which will highlight the future challenges and opportunities for electricians, specifiers and end-users.

CPD webinar hosted by Voltimum will take place at 1pm on Wednesday 20 July 2016.

Jenny Smith and Tom Emson, from ventilation specialists Vent-Axia, review the current issues indoor air quality is generating. The webinar will also examine the causes and consequences of poor indoor air quality in our homes and practical information on what can be done to counter this. Plus the webinar will reveal the growing awareness of the health implications associated with poor IAQ and the latest research findings.

Vent Jenny-Smith-PRJenny Smith, Marketing Manager at Vent-Axia: “As new homes become more air tight and existing properties undergo energy efficiency measures to improve their insulation and air tightness, indoor air quality is an increasingly important consideration. With mould and condensation a blight in many homes, our webinar will offer electricians and specifiers the latest IAQ information and includes solutions that they can offer their customers to provide good comfort in the home and peace of mind.”   

Royal College of Physicians’ report

IAQ has recently come to the forefront following research on the subject by high profile organisations.

The Royal College of Physicians’ report “Every breath we take: the lifelong impact of air pollution” states that around 40,000 people are dying in the UK every year due to air pollution. Exposure to indoor air pollutants such as kitchen products, faulty boilers, air fresheners and second-hand smoke further add to these figures and impact on indoor air quality.

This report backs up the findings of other recent research, including “The Future of Indoor Air Quality in UK Homes and its Impact on Health”. This found that as new and refurbished homes become ever more air tight to meet the Government’s carbon emission targets for 2050, the number of people suffering with asthma could increase by 80% from current levels. This report suggests that the solution for good IAQ is continuous ventilation and, in new build homes, continuous mechanical ventilation, preferably with heat recovery (MVHR) is the most efficient and effective option.

Vent-Axia is working with Voltimum, a leading portal for the electrical industry, to provide electricians and specifiers the latest information on indoor air quality via the CPD webinar.
