Studies behind the air that we breathe
At VELUX we work every day to ensure a better indoor climate and more daylight. We know that breathing poor indoor air can have negative health effects. As we spend most of our time indoors, 55% of the total intake of our food, water and air during a lifetime consists of indoor air from our home, we therefore naturally breathe in air that comes from an indoor environment (Sundell, 2004b).
To put it into perspective, we consume 15 kg of air per day, while most people consume 2kg of water and food per day (Nilsson, 2008). That is a lot of air, we need to make sure is as healthy as possible every day. As a lot of us a currently working from home, we need to ensure our indoor climate reflects a healthy environment for us and the people we live with.
