The Balanced Healthy Home Environment

= Ventilation + Heating + Insulation

An ideal indoor environment for a home is one which is air-tight and well insulated, with consistent heating, when required, matched with a ventilation system that removes moist and stale air to keep you healthy.

The primary causes of poor indoor air quality are condensation and mould. There are many factors which contribute to this; such as poor insulation, inadequate heating and ventilation, and the lifestyles of the occupants.
