Mechanical whole-house ventilation systems are a fantastic way to bring healthy air into multiple rooms, and reduce mould and condensation across the whole house. There are several kinds, which act in different ways to move air around.
Mechanical ventilation keeps homes dry and warm. Find out which ventilation systems will work best for you with MC Electrical.
Choosing the right Ventilation makes a big difference to your house
Positive pressure systems
These create a drier, warmer environment by drawing the heated air from your roof cavity, filtering it, and distributing it throughout the home via ducting and vents. The dry, warm, filtered air pushes out the old stale air, and this cycle is repeated regularly to ensure it is constantly replenished. Positive pressure systems are ideal for older homes which breathe naturally.
Balanced pressure systems
More airtight (often newer-build) homes may be better suited to a balanced pressure system of mechanical ventilation, as they have little natural airflow. The balanced pressure system works by bringing in air from outside to circulate around the house while extracting old air through an exhaust vent. This allows for air movement even in a well-sealed home. Such systems can be upgraded for more energy efficiency, tempering incoming cold air and recycling heat energy.
