(Original article in Spanish, this is a translated excerpt) - Our home is the place where we sleep, grow, love and ultimately, where a big part of our life takes place. Even though there is no one-size-fits-all solution for the perfect house since everyone has their personal definition, there are some characteristics that we can all agree are desirable. Everyone wants their home to have good air quality, a comfortable temperature, good lighting and no noise pollution, to be efficient and resistant to weather changes.
There is scientific consensus about the strong link between environmental conditions within homes and the health, wellbeing and productivity of the people living in them. Inefficient homes and their sub-optimal circumstances, such as for example little to no ventilation and dampness issues are known to cause respiratory, nervous system and cardiovascular issues.
