Choosing a ventilation system

As we strive to keep our homes warm and cosy, we end up keeping all the stale, damp air trapped within our homes. This can lead to condensation, mould and mildew, which can detrimentally affect the health of your family. A lot of us work longer hours so our homes are sealed up tight, not to mention the six months of the year when it can be too cold to open the windows! So how do you maintain air quality and remove excess moisture in your home? Good ventilation is the answer.

While heating is often the first consideration it is important to remember that good ventilation introduces drier air into your home…and drier air is easier to heat.

Roof cavity/ Positive pressure ventilation systems are the most common type available in New Zealand. SmartVent Positive Pressure ventilation systems draw fresher, drier air into your home from either the roof cavity or outside. This air is then passed through a high efficiency filter and introduced into your home. This introduced air forces out the moist, stale air that causes condensation, mould and mildew.

Continually cycling your home with fresher, drier air will help remove air borne toxins, harmful pollutants, dust and dust mites.

Some of the features to look for in a ventilation system:

Superior Filtration

Superior, medical grade F7 filtration traps up to 90% of pollens, dust and allergens. This filtered air is distributed into each room via unique acoustic insulated ducting, which reduces fan and airflow noise.

Intelligent Control System

Choose your preferred temperature range, then sit back and enjoy your healthier home.

Whisper Quiet Running

The unique acoustic insulated ducting is important to ensure ‘whisper quiet’ air transfer and better air temperature retention.


Ventilation systems should be easily upgradeable – your system can grow if you add rooms or increase your family.
