Description

A series of studies of homes in England show that around 15% - or some 3 million homes - suffer problems with damp and mould, largely because of poor ventilation. The impact on public health and quality of life is substantial.

The Handbook of Domestic Ventilation is a comprehensive study of the basic science, technology and practical application of effective and energy efficient ventilation strategies for dwellings. Unlike other books, the Handbook concentrates on a domestic context rather that looking solely at commercial applications, giving a much needed insight into the requirements of ventilation for the home.

Basing his conclusions on both theoretical study and practical experience, Rodger Edwards demonstrates the clear link between poor ventilation and poor health, and tells the reader how to use good quality ventilation as a way of enhancing quality of life and as a health improvement tool.

Latterly he has written about planning, housing, regeneration and local government for The Guardian and other publications, and travelled extensively in Britain and overseas covering that field. He was a board member of the government's former Academy for Sustainable Communities, a member of its former urban sounding board, and is currently a vice president, trustee and policy council member of the Town and Country Planning Association.
