Zenith Ventilation “After more than a decade spent dedicated to the prevention of mould, condensation, musty smells, and poor indoor air quality a few things stand out today.
Skyrocketing electricity prices have resulted in changed consumer behaviours. I have found that people are not heating their houses in winter, rather just individual rooms with gas or electric devices and they rely on the blankets in the bedrooms. Whilst this is good for reducing electricity consumption, it is detrimental to the indoor air quality of the home. As air temperature decreases, relative humidity increases, this inverse relationship generates damp air. This is due to the fact that cold air cannot hold as much moisture as warm air. There are many available options today to maintain the perfect air temperature inside to prevent not only mould and structural damage, but health problems, these climate control devices such as heaters, air conditioning, air purifiers, and dehumidifiers. Heat or Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) is also a great way of introducing fresh air without introducing the outdoor conditions, this is a way of ventilating without having to open your windows and it is very efficient as ERV’s have up to 95% temperature efficiency which will help to reduce electricity costs”.
