Yesterday I was asked to go to a clients home who has a flat roof.

He had been told that he can’t have a forced air ventilation sysyem because of his flat roof, but wants one as his son has a well designed forced air ventilation system in his home and my client saw the changes in the home in 3mths, but has been really impressed with the improvement in the health of his grandchildren, so he want’s this change for both himself and his wife.

The house  has a 500mm gap between the roofing iron and the ceiling so there is plenty of room to install the fan units in this space. The client has been checking his roof cavity for both humidity and temperature over the last week and found that it was definatly both dryer and warmer than inside his home, it’s suprising what solar energy can do. So he in now happy to install a ventilation system designed for his home, I am taking into account the volume of the home, the number of rooms to be ventilated, his existing home heating (which is a heat pump) and advising on bathroom fans and range hood changes. This way we are looking after all the family needs and the best for the home.

What is the best way to Stop Condensation?

Some people believe Double glazing will (the water or mist on the glass) – All double glazing does is the impression of on the glass, it does not the moisture levels inside the home. If all you have done is add Double Glazing to your home, the water that used to run off your windows will now be soaking into your carpets, fabrics and beds even more.

The best way to is to dry out your home on a daily basis, and the best way to do that is to install a good home ventilation system designed for your home and all manufacture of where ever possible.

One of the major sources of is the steam you produce in your shower, by installing a  STEAM STOPPER over your shower you will cut the in your bathroom, make your shower more efficient, save lost heat and save money.

Solar Energy Available in New Zealand

Solar Energy Available in New Zealand.

I’ve added an interesting page on Solar Energy, New Zealand gets an average of 1400 KW’s per meter Sq per year where as Germany only gets 1000 KW’s per meter Sq per year.

And we waste it each and every day. Why not use it?

Today I looked at an 80 year old double brick house, 3 bedroom with bad odours from both cooking and mould.

This house has a heat pump installed in the lounge.

The owner says, it gets warm in the lounge, but the heat pump guy’s say it is big enough to heat the lounge and 2 bedrooms but does not seem to do it. His wife does not like to use electric blankets, but at present feels like she has to.

By using a Home ventilation system the house will become drier, the beds will dry out and the heat pump will be more efficient.

Have a read of the page on condensation it’s causes and some cures.

How a modern well designed  Home Ventilation system will benefit you and your family.
