Modern ventilation systems ensure a regulated exchange of air without wasting energy. Depending on the device, they also take overheating and hot water preparation.
Advantages of ventilation systems for buildings and the environment
- Consistently high air quality – avoidance of moisture damage
- Intelligent, demand-based ventilation
- Energy-efficient ventilation with heat recovery
- Noise and dirt-free air exchange – even when you are away for a longer period of time
- Increased living comfort – especially for allergy sufferers
Environment: Why is ventilation so important?
Modern houses are now sealed with sensible thermal insulation in such a way that hardly any energy is lost. Low-energy houses in particular are provided with a tight building envelope, in particular, to avoid heat loss. Even with subsequent thermal insulation measures, an adequate supply of outside air is often no longer provided, for example through joints and leaks.
A natural exchange of air can therefore no longer take place and makes controlled living space ventilation indispensable. A constant change of air is necessary to avoid mould and damage to buildings, for example.
Window ventilation is difficult to implement as the sole ventilation measure. To ensure an energy-saving and hygienic minimum air exchange, ventilation would have to be carried out four to six times a day for approx. 5 minutes. Regular checking and ventilationsrensning can help you save energy.
Systems for controlled home ventilation reliably provide the necessary fresh air and can also provide heating and hot water in a, particularly energy-efficient manner.
Environment: Do ventilation systems need a lot of electricity?
The power consumption depends on the device selection and how the user handles the system. If an inefficient device is constantly running in “party mode”, and with soiled filters on top of that, it certainly needs a lot of energy. If the windows are still vigorously ventilated, the investment has definitely missed its target.
With appropriate planning, adjustment and adequate handling of the system, however, it is now possible to use fresh air technology efficiently without any problems. This way, you can do your part in protecting the environment. The significant increase in efficiency of the devices available on the market today has a positive effect.
