Home Ventilation System Survey

Home Ventilation Systems Survey Results

Thank you to all those who have taken the time to fill in the survey.
Some have been installed in the last year or so, others have been there for over 10 years.

This has been very interesting, and I thought I’d leave it
till early 2011 when it will be more appreciated and timely before winter.

So here is the data….

%’s of respondants have this type of ventilation system

88.41% have – Positive Pressure Systems
10.14% have – Balanced Pressure Systems
01.45% have – Other

Remember:
Very Happy – Better than I expected
Happy – Does what I expected
It’s OK – But I expected more
Dissapointed –

Home Ventilation System Survey Results

Like all surveys I can only assemble the information given by those who completed it.

Some examples to bear in mind…..
If I went out and bought the TV I wanted, I’ll generally tell everyone I’m happy with it, where as if I bought a microwave when they first came out, how many of you felt, well it doesn’t quite do what I was told it would, but it still does a good job.

Here are some general comments from me after analysing the data. There are plenty of variables.

Those who bought a Balanced Pressure System are ‘Happy’ or ‘Very Happy’ as shown in the survey because it does what they expected.

Some of those who have bought a PPV (Positive Pressure Ventilation) system have commented in the survey that they believe they have been over sold or have a system that does not quite suit the house. Their views and specific expectations may taint their perspective and comments.

The question here does the system improve the house from what it was?

88.52% of those with a PPV system installed says it fixes the problems of condensation.

The aim of this survey is to examine the effectiveness of different types of ventilation systems – not to promote specific brands, so I have removed any branding.

Over 30% made comments, here are some of them.
——
“Has removed the dampness far better than I thought it wood (sic). It’s lovely not having to wipe down crying windows anymore. And there is no dampness in the walls, beds etc. Would highly recommend an ****. Oh and my asthma has improved!”
——
“Had a ********* unit and had nothing but trouble from the start. Would never install one again. **** is wonderful and would install again if the opportunity arose.”
——
“Best thing I have ever purchased”
——“We had

“We had a **** installed because of a really bad condensation problem. Since having it installed the condensation has stopped completely. I never thought it would work as well as it does.”

——
“We were told not to expect it to heat the house at all, but we’ve definitely noticed that the house is warmer since installing it. No more mold or condensation, either. The kids aren’t coughing at night anymore, and my asthma is far more controlled than it was. VERY happy with the system.”
——
“Within 1 week was noticeably doing what we needed it to do, reduce condensation (infact 95% of it completely) and completely got rid of musty smell and mold build up.”

Awesome awesome awesome got rid of musty mold downstairs, fresh house to come home to whenever we have been out for a while and everythign is shut up. Great.
——
Should have gotten one sooner – even bought one for our rental property.
——
Was already installed when I moved in. Had it off for one night last summer and got moisture on windows so have had it on all the time ever since. Have no idea of exact date house was built or date of installation
