Why is indoor air quality important?

With people spending up to 90% of their time indoors, and with growing evidence of pathogens moving around our buildings, there has never been a more important time to make sure a building has effective ventilation. Add to this that around 65% of homes in the UK are estimated to suffer from poor indoor air quality because of inadequate ventilation, the need to treat ventilation as an essential element of any building becomes clear. 

To reduce the threat of viruses taking hold inside buildings, RHEVA has stated “In buildings with mechanical ventilation systems extended operation times are recommended…”*

Effective ventilation helps to create a healthier indoor environment by preventing the build-up of airborne pollutants. Our range of ventilation solutions can help protect people inside buildings such as homes, offices or care homes etc. We're here to help you find the right type of ventilation.

Why do you need to maintain your ventilation unit?

It is important to maintain your ventilation system in order for it to function effectively.Ventilation servicing helps to extend product life, lowers running costs, providing quieter running and cleaner air in the home. Dirty filters lead to poor indoor air quality and can make ventilation systems inefficient. Regular servicing combats this & reduces maintenance & repair costs. Our ventilation units are designed to keep maintenance levels to a minimum. For our larger whole house units we recommend a full service every 2 years with filter changes required every 3-6 months in between. For our smaller units we recommend periodically checking the fan is free of any dust/dirt/grease build up using a damp cloth with warm water and a mild detergent. Make sure that the fan is switched off at the mains before carrying out any form of cleaning maintenance yourself.
