Drying Your Clothes Inside?

Drying Your Clothes Inside?
July 24, 2013

You would be surprised by how much moisture is released into your home by simply drying your clothes inside. The average New Zealand home produces around 100 litres of moisture a week* through cooking, cleaning, showering and general living. If not actively removed that moisture can lead to condensation, mould and airborne nasties and family health problems. On top of that, for nearly 6 months in a year it is difficult to throw open windows and let fresh air in. We all know that we need double glazing and insulation, even air-conditioning but that can actually produce its own problem of inadequate ventilation. Combined with New Zealand’s damp, temperate climate you have the perfect conditions for mould and mildew which can damage your paint and wallpaper, rot your walls and furniture, harm your curtains, furnishings and clothes. Mould and mildew lead to air-borne allergens and aggravates respiratory illnesses like asthma.

Given we can spend over 60% of our time within our homes it makes sense that we should be breathing the cleanest of air while we are there. A home ventilation system quietly ventilates your home with fresher, drier air; reducing condensation and moisture and a creating healthier, more comfortable living environment. SmartVent specialises in ventilation systems to keep the heat in your home, re-using heat you have already paid for … reducing space heating costs and helping to dry out and balance your home environment.
