NEW – SmartVent AirSmart – high performance with style
September 10, 2015

Brand new to New Zealand, SmartVent AirSmart is a small duct heating and cooling system which delivers high performance heating and cooling comfort all year round – and, it’s easy on the eye.

Many of today’s homes and buildings are designed with flat roofs and limited ceiling space, making heating and cooling installations difficult and restrictive – until now.

SmartVent AirSmart can easily be installed in new and most existing dwellings in ceilings, crawlspaces and closets, or even under staircases.

No longer do you need to include bulky grills and bulkheads in your home or project. SmartVent AirSmart is unassuming and won’t compromise the architectural integrity of your home or building. No more unattractive components on your ceilings and walls. SmartVent AirSmart is just a high performing, discreet unit that’s easy to install and run.

“This system is new to New Zealand but has been highly successful in Australia with about 1000 installs in Victoria,” explains Kim Williams, Business Development Manager for Simx. “It has been developed and based on a Canadian system that has been in the market for over 40 years. The beauty of this system is that it is so high performing and, it’s very visually appealing. The grills can be made to any length to fit the lines of the house or building which has no affect on the delivery system at all. It is a designer’s dream system. They can now include a very efficient heating and cooling system in their designs without affecting the design elements of the project.”

So how does it work?

Air distribution and dispersion
The unique outlets of the system have a ‘venturi’ affect to create exact outlet velocities that cause a high level of air entrainment and induction. Air is mixed quickly and thoroughly from top to bottom and throughout the home. This de-stratification and dispersion is superior to traditional conditioned air delivery systems. With small ducted systems a temperature differential, between ceiling and floor, of up to one degree may be achieved.

AirSmart ducts start as small as 50mm in diameter. Traditional heating and cooling system ducts can be as wide as 500mm. With a small duct system, the furthest points from the unit get the same airflow as the closest points.

Efficient and versatile
SmartVent AirSmart is also one of the most energy efficient systems on the market today with high performing inverted controlled fans which accurately deliver air volumes quickly at the correct temperature. This reduces the time it takes to heat spaces and delivers lower heating costs. With the inclusion of a SmartVent AirSmart system, homes and buildings can be divided into separate controllable zones and the fans will automatically adjust to provide only the air quantity required for the zones activated, unlike traditional systems with limited fan speed options.

With land at a premium in most cities maximising living space in medium and high-density dwellings is a must. AirSmart’s small duct units are the perfect space saving option and can operate in as little as a 150mm ceiling cavity.

SmartVent AirSmart small duct heating and cooling systems are versatile, compact and efficient…and with a 40-year track record in performance, nothing else compares.
