Ventilation and air infiltration into buildings generally represent an energy demand for between 25% to over 50% of a building’s total space heating or cooling needs. Our balanced ventilation system, instead, continually adjusts the ventilating system in time and depending on demand, for example reducing ventilation when the building is unoccupied.
Balanced Ventilation Systems – For all climates.
Balanced ventilation systems are based on the principle of introducing fresh outdoor air into a room at the same rate that stale indoor air is exhausted from the room without causing negative pressure or positive pressure in the room. With these systems, equal quantities of air are brought into and sent out of the building. In practice, this is achieved using two fans: one to bring fresh air in and another to send indoor air out.
Balanced ventilation is typically used in connection with heat/cold recovery. A heat exchanger in the ventilation system converts the heat/cold from the extract air into energy, which then heats/colds the supply air.
This balanced ventilation system is available for all kinds of new buildings, from stand-alone houses till complex buildings made up of more than 100 apartments or offices.
This process benefits from a few important advantages of which you will notice improvements in a short time. The heat recovery goes around 85% and, in addition, these fans use the minimum amount of energy in order to offer an extremely energy-efficient system that ensures a healthy indoor climate and comfort.
While insufficient ventilation may result in poor indoor air quality and consequential health problems, SmartBuild systems operate to maximize IAQ benefits keeping you updated on information about indoor air quality. Smart ventilation also provides information on energy consumption as well as signals when systems need maintenance or repair. Consequently, choosing smart ventilation can radically cut all those redundant energy waste that affect your utility bills and other non-IAQ costs such as thermal discomfort or noise.
In terms of sustainability, a similar system can eventually minimize unnecessary or excessive air changes that have an important impact on global energy use. As some of the most common pollutants are carbon-based materials used in construction, a SmartBuild’s commitment is to engage in avoiding the use of products that contain volatile organic compounds. These VOC’s are usually found in materials such as wood cabinets, paints, glues, carpets, and they pose a hazard as they may evaporate and release dangerous gas.
Taking into consideration the quality of the outdoor air, if the building is located on a busy road, for example, undesirable particles may enter through an open window. The ventilation unit has filters that will stop these undesirable particles from the air.
