A whole house ventilation system ensures fresh filtered air, good health and a sense of well-being. This is vital when you consider we spend 70% of our time indoors.
The past decade has seen a huge emphasis on increasing the thermal efficiency of home building and we now have draught free, well-insulated homes. However, with this comes an increasing number of respiratory problems related to poor air quality. The most effective way to combat this is a balanced mechanical ventilation of the building; meaning as much freshly filtered air is fed into the living rooms as stale air is extracted from the kitchen and bathrooms.
A ventilation system for an entire house with heat recovery is not a heating system or an alternative to a heating system. It simply recovers the energy provided by any heating system, which would ordinarily be lost through traditional ventilation systems.
