Updated June 28, 2018 08:06:08 For decades, people have been dying of heatstroke and heart attacks because of the heat in the home.
But now a new study finds that the average house in the US is one of the dirtiest in the world.
The average American home has a heat-related death rate of 4,924 deaths a year, according to a report by the Associated Press and the University of California at Davis.
That’s almost twice the national average.
The study found that the US has the third-highest rate of heat- related deaths in the developed world.
Key points: A house is considered “dirtier” when it has a high death rate from heat stress than a home with a low death rate The average US house has a death rate twice the average of the rest of the world The study looked at homes in 26 US states The researchers used data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to measure the state of the home from the air, in terms of the number of people living there and how many people died from heat-associated causes.
It was compiled by researchers at the University at Buffalo and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
The researchers found that people living in states with the worst heat were also those with the highest rates of heat related deaths.
The researchers said the number one risk factor for heat-induced mortality was the fact that the home has too much air conditioning.
This means that the air inside the home is hotter than it would be outside.
“The home should be insulated and the insulation should be at least 50 per cent,” said study author Andrew Satterfield, a researcher at the CDC.
“The average heat-exposed home is only at about 70 per cent of the national maximum.”
The report found that more than 50 per 100 homes have air conditioning units installed in the United States.
It also found that only 6 per cent have air-conditioning in the bathroom and only about 3 per cent in the kitchen.
‘Theres no excuse’ The researchers looked at air quality in the homes in the states.
They also looked at the number and type of appliances in the houses and the temperature of the rooms in each house.
If there is more than one person in the house, the researchers said, they then looked at how many deaths from heat exhaustion occurred in each room.
They found that it was extremely rare for a room with no air conditioning to have a death from heatstroke.
So the researchers concluded that there was no excuse for the state in which a person lived.
It was also important to note that heat-exhausted people in the country are more likely to die from heart disease and stroke, so this study is not meant to suggest that air conditioning is a cause of heat exhaustion.
“If you live in an area with a lot of heat and a lot more people are getting hit with heat stress, you are going to see a lot fewer people die of heat stroke and heart disease,” said Satterfields.
“That doesn’t mean you need to install air conditioning everywhere.
But air conditioning, even in a small home, should be done as minimally as possible.”
The report said that the study was not intended to suggest air conditioning causes heat exhaustion, but rather that the risk of heat stress was higher in the areas where it was installed.
A study by the University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland, found that in its study of 2,200 people living at home, people who had been exposed to heat at home had a significantly higher risk of heart attack and stroke.
But the study also found the number to be significantly lower in other countries, including Australia, New Zealand, France, Switzerland and Germany.
This study was published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
It found that air-con has been linked to a reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
It is not clear how much of the difference in risk could be explained by air conditioning alone, Satterfeld said.
In terms of air conditioning in homes, the CDC said there was a correlation between air conditioning use and a person’s risk of dying from heart attacks.
“People who use air conditioning are at higher risk for heart attacks, particularly those with high blood pressure and high cholesterol,” the report said.
“For people who do not use air conditioners, there is no relationship between air conditioner use and risk of cardiac events.”
Heat-related deaths have been declining in the USA for decades, but there is a significant rise in the death rate in the developing world.
