If you currently are buying or building a house, we know how exciting (and stressful) this time is for you!
There are so many things to consider … bench surfaces, appliances, wall colours, tile, carpet … the list goes on. Chances are, your top priority is to create a healthy environment for your family.
Recently, there has been an increased focus on homes, old and new, being well insulated and airtight in order to increase energy savings and – more importantly – protect against asthma and other respiratory illnesses.
In addition to good insulation it is vital for homes to be well ventilated. This prevents excess moisture from building up. Showers, un-flued gas heaters, cooking and even breathing create moisture and dampness. Condensation is the visible symptom of unhealthy air in homes.
Kiwi climate, often cold and wet in winter, make it impractical to open doors and windows all year long. This is where a Home Ventilation System can help!
You would be surprised by the amount of moisture a new home can produce. Concrete slabs contain several thousand litres of water and can take an average of one month per 25mm of slab thickness to dry completely.
Home ventilation systems use fans to move air into the house, providing continuous ventilation regardless of the weather. This helps to maintain air quality and remove moisture from everyday living activities. Well designed and installed home ventilation system deliver required air replacement continuously and independently of weather conditions.
Massey University research shows that home ventilation systems reduce fungal spores, moisture and carbon dioxide, making a home drier and healthier. Occupants experience fewer headaches, sneezing and eye irritations. Drier homes can also be heated more effectively and are more durably.
It depends on many factors such as the design of your house, its floor area, the type of roof and the local climate. Each house is different so send us your plans to request a design, or Book a Free Home Assessment to know what system suits you most.
