Mechanical ventilation is another advanced home technology helping to create healthy living environments through improved indoor air quality. It can also have a significant impact on homeowners’ energy bills based on an intelligent heat exchange system.
TAF Plumbing has extensive experience installing mechanical ventilation systems. We are proud to use the world’s leading brand Vent Axia in heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and demand control ventilation (DCV) to equalise the circulation of hot and cold air throughout the house. Both systems meet building requirements to deliver sustainable and energy efficient home ventilation solutions.
The use of mechanical ventilation systems can achieve significant cost savings with systems recovering up to 90% of the heat that escapes the home. Not only that, they help to reduce carbon emissions from the home, contributing to a cleaner environment and global climate change targets. Just as importantly, mechanical ventilation systems have a significant impact on indoor air quality which in Ireland has been reported to often be more polluted than the air outside the home.
Fuel burning stoves, cooking, radon and furniture off-gassing can contribute to poor indoor air quality resulting in harmful levels of bacteria, viruses, mites, fungi, chemical interactions and ozone production inside the home. Mechanical ventilation systems work continuously to exchange indoor air with fresh air from the outside, keeping the air inside the home circulating and minimising humidity where mould and fungi can multiply.
