Ventilation

Ventilation is an essential component of any healthy and energy-efficient home. Poor ventilation can lead to a build-up of harmful pollutants, dampness, and mould, which can have adverse effects on both health and comfort. As part of the ECO4 scheme, improving ventilation is one of the measures that can be taken to improve the energy efficiency of homes. 

There are various ways to improve ventilation, including mechanical ventilation systems, trickle vents, and natural ventilation. Mechanical ventilation systems use fans and ducts to circulate air in and out of the home. Trickle vents are small openings in windows or doors that allow air to flow in and out of the home. Natural ventilation relies on the circulation of air through passive ventilation methods, such as roof vents and air bricks.

A typical ventilation Installation could take between 1-3 days 

Prevents Damp and Mould:

Inadequate ventilation can lead to high levels of humidity and moisture, which can cause damp and mould growth. Ventilation systems help to prevent this by reducing the amount of moisture in the air and promoting air circulation.

Improved Indoor Air Quality:

Proper ventilation helps to remove excess moisture, pollutants, and allergens from indoor spaces, leading to better indoor air quality. This is especially important for people with respiratory issues or allergies.

Building Regulations:

ECO4 requires that all measures installed meet building regulations, and proper ventilation is a key requirement. By ensuring that your property is compliant with regulations, you can avoid costly fines and penalties while also ensuring the safety and comfort of occupants.

Increased Energy Efficiency:

Ventilation systems that are properly installed can help to reduce energy consumption and increase energy efficiency in buildings. By replacing stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, the need for artificial cooling or heating can be minimised, leading to lower energy bills.
