BALANCED VENTILATION FOR YOUR HOME
By ensuring the same amount of air enters the building as is exhausted from the building your home will become one of the most energy efficient worldwide. All driven by your Solar System!
Smart use of high quality ventilation solutions is an effective way to create a comfortable, energy efficient home that can help decrease your families reliance on gas and electricity companies.
Removing excess heat, controlling moisture and bringing fresh air into your property will create a healthier environment in which to live daily. Asthmatics and Respiratory Illness sufferers will love having a Humidity Level below 40% that kills dust mites, toxins, mould and internal condensation
Existing Homes Ventilation
Existing buildings can be tested for air leakage, refurbished using energy efficient techniques and installed with a balanced ventilation system with heat recovery to achieve very high-energy performance.
The German Government Energy Agency DENA has demonstrated this can be achieved with refurbishments of over 330 buildings resulting in a reduction of energy consumption to a level well below that of a comparable new building. In Australia we have seen similar results with iRenewables clients.
New Homes Ventilation
When building a new home, ventilation must be addressed. With the increasing demand for energy efficient buildings, the end result of the design and building process are often buildings that have significantly reduced air leakage.
This is the desired result of energy efficient design and construction, as reduced air leakage means reduced energy loss and therefore reduced energy consumption for heating and cooling.
Winter Verses Summer
In winter, fresh air is drawn from the outside the home. The heat exchanger transfers the warmth from the air being expelled to the air coming in. This saves on heating costs and the fresh air is also filtered!
Over summer, during the early morning and evening, cool dry air is drawn in, filtered and circulated into bedrooms and living areas. The in-coming air bypasses the heat exchanger. Moisture-laden air and odours are continually extracted from toilets, bathrooms and kitchens.
