Homes confined more polluted and more noisy

Side battery, there is the decrease of the pollution due to the fall in economic activity due to the containment. On the other hand, the increase of air pollution and noise in the accommodation, the unexpected effect of the outbreak of coronavirus. On 17 march, the date of the beginning of containment, indoor air pollution and noise pollution have increased within the French homes, according to a study conducted by Netatmo.

"47% of French households exceeded at least once the threshold of 1 000ppm of CO2 over the course of this day. This means that these dwellings have not been sufficiently disaggregated to renew the air," says the manufacturer of connected objects Netatmo. After this peak, the indoor pollution has remained superior to that in 2019 over the same period. "According to the measured data, an average of 34% of French households exceed the threshold of 1000 particles per million (ppm) of CO2 at least once per week, compared to 30% in average in 2019", the study says. Small point of consolation, the French households are the least polluted of Europe!

noise increased

The containment has not synonymous with calmness and serenity. The noise has increased by 40% in homes: children, noisy neighbours or taking advantage of the opportunity to perform the work, all of this has contributed to raise the decibel level above 42,59 dB on average. Again, the phenomenon is paradoxical, then, that the calm had returned in the deserted streets by cars, not to speak of the silence in the vicinity of airports.

These figures were collected from the data collected and anonymized from weather stations Netatmo, in seven european countries, including France, Italy, Spain and Germany. Another lesson to be learned: the ability of persons to properly ventilate their home is décorélée of the country - and therefore the climate.
