Why do I need a ventilation unit?

Fresh indoor air is essential for our health, however, we often neglect the significance of good air quality. Most people ventilate their premises by opening windows, thinking this can provide enough fresh air for breathing. Besides the fast and efficient ventilation offered by natural draft (which should last about 3-5 minutes), we can also purchase multiple accessories that help enhance ventilation.

To help you achieve ventilation-related energy savings, while still providing the much needed fresh indoor air, the market also offers ventilation units and systems that provide for a more healthy ambient air through mechanical ventilation. Mechanical ventilation is the only way to ensure the adequate or planned volume of air flow inside living premises. This will help you avoid occasional draft required for indoor air flow in case of natural ventilation, while saving, as these devices ventilate premises in a much more efficient way, while keeping out outdoor noise, winter cold or summer heat.

Today, regulations and standards for installation of modern windows in several EU member states also mandate installation of ventilation systems – as of 1 January 2018 regulations stipulating mandatory ventilation entered into force in Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Denmark and Sweden, due to which the purchase of modern windows is now conditional upon purchase of a corresponding ventilation system.
