Top of the list for creating a healthy home
May 9, 2016

Building a new home or renovating an existing one all takes a considerable amount of planning. There are so many things to consider … bench surfaces, appliances, wall colours, tile choices, carpet colours … the list goes on. So it’s no news that today’s homeowner wants more than aesthetics for their home, they also want their home to function as a safe and healthy environment for their family.

In recent years there has been an increased focus on homes, old and new, being well insulated and airtight. In addition to good insulation, ventilation is vital to circulate fresh air and prevent moisture being trapped in homes that are quite often closed up all day.

The energy recovery difference

SmartVent Synergy, now with Evolve* is an Energy Recovery Ventilation system capable of extracting stale, moisture-laden air from inside the home and bringing in fresher, drier air simultaneously. Energy recovery is an extremely efficient way to re-use the energy that has already been paid for.

Synergy Evolve is suitable for use with most heating sources so heat efficiency can be optimised. This system is especially suitable for colder climates, such as parts of the South Island, where outdoor temperatures are considerably lower than heated indoor temperatures. Systems also come in various sizes for homes up to 150, 250 and 350sqm.

In addition, whilst offering superior air quality for homes, the new – Synergy Plus system from SmartVent combines energy recovery with the benefits of heat pump heating and cooling for year-round comfort, all in one unit!

Builders know that a good home ventilation system can add quality and value to a new or existing home. They are increasingly recommending them to improve the air quality and dryness of a home and the health of its occupants.
