Smartvent, the first and only choice



Smartvent, the first and only choice to meet requirements.

In the last five years demand for affordable housing in the Papakura/Franklin area has increased dramatically.

In response, a 42-house development backing onto the main railway line south in Papakura is about to break ground.

With noise identified as a health concern, SmartVent home ventilation systems from Simx was the developer’s first – and only – choice.

“As this subdivision is near a busy rail line there is an acoustic requirement by the Council. These builds must include a Home ventilation system.” explains the developer’s installer, Denis Withy from Laser Electrical Papakura. “This is to ensure the air quality remains fresh because the noise from trains means there is a need to keep windows closed.”

“SmartVent is the only system we know that will do the job well. It is reliable and provides the acoustic properties the Council require now and into the future”

Adding value to the Home

The development itself has been priced within the ‘under $600,000’ Auckland price point.  “Adding the SmartVent system to these builds is definitely an upgrade and certainly adds value to the purchaser’s home package.”

With a dramatic increase in housing market activity in the last few years Denis estimates the demand in the area will continue over the next couple of years. “And we expect to see more and more SmartVent systems going into homes. We certainly recommend it to all our customers.”
