Abstract

The present study was undertaken in Ludhiana city, to examine the existing status of ecofactors in the homes and to suggest strategies for better management of the same. Total of 36 households each from industrial and non industrial area were selected for the measurement of temperature, noise level and light intensity. It revealed that temperature and noise level in interiors of the most homes i.e. kitchens, bed rooms and drawing room were found to be more than the acceptable limits. In non industrial area, the noise level ranged from 60–70 db in majority of kitchens, drawing rooms and bed rooms whereas in industrial area it was found to be in the range of 70–80 db in majority of the rooms studied. The light intensity was found less than permissible limits in industrial area. The results indicated that temperature, noise and light intensity were not much congenial for comfortable living in majority of the households. For management of these ecofactors, suitable strategies were suggested.
