SmartVent Synergy – protecting the health of your family and home

SmartVent Synergy – protecting the health of your family and home
March 4, 2016

Today’s homeowner doesn’t just want the nice kitchen and bathroom, four bedrooms and ensuite … they are looking for more. Protecting the health of their families by providing a safe and healthy environment now heads the list. SmartVent Synergy and SynergyPlus home ventilation systems from Simx do just that.

In recent years there has been an increased focus on homes, old and new, being well insulated and airtight. A well insulated home offers its owners increased energy savings and – more importantly – protects against asthma and other respiratory illnesses. In addition to good insulation it is vital that homes be well ventilated to prevent excess moisture from building up.

SmartVent Synergy is an Energy Recovery Ventilation system capable of extracting stale, moisture-laden air from inside the home and bringing in fresher, drier air simultaneously. Synergy is a completely balanced system that recovers and re-uses energy from the warm air extracted from within the home – an extremely energy efficient way to re-use energy that has already been paid for! 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.

How does it work?

A SmartVent Synergy Energy Recovery system will use the warmed air, from inside the home, pass it through an advanced energy recovery converter and temper the fresh dry air from outside before moving it to rooms that need it most.

The ERV difference

Simx’s Energy Recovery Ventilation system is very different from other HRV systems. It is balanced; capable of extracting stale, moisture-laden air from inside your home and bringing in fresh drier air simultaneously. Synergy is also an energy recovery system that recovers and reuses energy from the air extracted from the home. Most heat sources are suitable for use with Synergy.

In addition the new SmartVent SynergyPlus system from Simx, suitable for new builds, not only offers superior air quality for homes, it also delivers the benefits of heat pump heating and cooling for year-round comfort – now in one unit!

Builders know that a good home ventilation system can add quality and value to a home. They are increasingly including home ventilations systems in their new builds and recommending them for renovations to improve internal air quality and mitigate the dangers of moisture in homes, and the flow on effects to the health of families.
