Home Ventilation Systems
- Product description
- Product details
A home ventilation system uses a system of ducting and fans to remove the moist air from your home. Once installed these systems have low running costs and can control normal household condensation.
Existing homes usually suit a positive pressure ventilation system which forces stale, often moisture-laden indoor air out through gaps around doors, windows etc. New homes however tend to be more airtight, needing a balanced pressure HRV system.
We can explain the different types of home ventilation and help you select the system that best suits your home.

5 questions & answers about this product
What is a Positive Pressure Ventilation System?
The objective of a positive pressure system is to pressure fresh air into your home to push out the damp, stale air through gaps around doors, windows etc.
This system works effectively in older homes but more airtight homes should consider a heat or energy recovery system that draws the stale air out as it introduces fresh air. This is also known as a balanced ventilation system. Read more about Positive Pressure Ventilation Systems here.
How much does it cost to run a Ventilation system?
The main component of a ventilation system is the fan. A two-vent system costs around $15 per month running continuously - that's around 2c per hour. A 4-room system costs around 3c per hour. This estimate is based on 27c/kWhr.
How many rooms can a ventilation system cover?
Our standard ventilation systems can cover 1-6 rooms. Additional kits can be utilised to extend to up to 12 rooms.
What if I don't have a roof space (attic)?
Most ventilation systems rely on having a roof space to run the ducting to the various rooms. If you don't have a roof space your options are limited.
- For suspended floors (ie not a concrete floor) you may be able to install ventilation ducts underfloor with floor vents.
- There are also through-the-wall options on a room by room basis. The SmartVent option for this incorporates heat recovery efficiency.
How often do filters need to change?
Filters are recommended to be changed every 12 months for maximum effectiveness but your controller will indicate when it is necessary. The great aspect about SmartVent filters is that you can easily change them yourself.

The ventilation system has proved, frankly, miraculous in eliminating our top priority issues of a) regular, persistent morning window condensation on wintry mornings, and (b) recurrent mould on curtains, behind settees, besides cupboards, and besides bookshelves.Peter, Auckland
