Types of ventilation

Natural ventilation

The simplest system is natural ventilation. This is used for basic applications, although is not recommended for complete ventilation in houses. Here the temperature difference between indoors and outdoors is used to achieve natural draughts in the system. A bathroom fan is also recommended for forcing the ventilation during the warm summer months.

Transport of waste heat

With todayʼs high heating costs, many home owners are choosing to install a fireplace or a heating stove. Using our ducts and components, combined with a fan, you can easily distribute the excess heat from your stove to other rooms, thereby achieving an even, comfortable temperature throughout the house.

Mechanical exhaust

The supply air is brought in through airing windows or through valves in the outside wall. The exhaust air is extracted via the exhaust air device using a fan. The exhaust air flow is stable and controlled, and independent of the outside temperature and wind conditions. This can also be combined with an exhaust air heat pump.

Mechanical exhaust and supply

If you want to go one step further, you can add a heat exchange unit that takes the heat from the exhaust air and transfers it to the supply air. Using this system you save energy through reduced heating elsewhere due to the preheated air.
