Inflatable houses, also known as bounce houses, are a popular choice for children's birthday parties and other events. However, they can be dangerous if not used properly. One of the risks associated with inflatable houses is that the blower used to inflate them can overheat and cause a fire. The fabric of the inflatable house can also be damaged if it is over-emphasized.
This was the case when we rented a large inflatable house for our children's birthday. The people who set it up couldn't inflate it with their electric fans, even when they connected it to two different outlets in our house, one outside our house, and another that we ran to the house to try a different circuit. They even tried connecting it to an outdoor electrical outlet in our neighbor's house, but still “weren't getting enough energy”.The risks associated with inflatable houses were discussed at a seminar called “Meteorological and Political Contexts of Inflatable House Accidents”, which was attended by students from the Department of Geography. This is just one of the topics that the teaching staff will soon be researching in more depth, including the risks posed by wind and thunderstorms. In order to ensure the safety of those using an inflatable house, it is important to make sure that the blower is not overworked and that it is connected to an appropriate power source.
It is also important to be aware of any potential weather hazards that could affect the safety of those using the inflatable house.
