Home ventilation combines benefits of passive and mechanical ventilation

Aereco has devised a solution for dwellings requiring mechanical ventilation that enables them to run on passive-stack ventilation for most of the time. The concept uses passive stack ventilation ducts coupled with non-permanent low-pressure mechanical assistance that is used only when the wind forces are not sufficient to ensure the required airflow. The mechanical assistance starts automatically and can be activated by a temperature sensor or pressure controller.

Fresh air is admitted by humidity-sensitive air inlets in bedrooms and living rooms and exhausted through wet rooms (toilets, bathroom and kitchen) through humidity-sensitive extract grilles. These components enable airflow to be controlled according to the needs of each room.

The supporting fan can be placed discreetly in a cupboard or ceiling void. In mechanical humidity-sensitive ventilation, the air extracted through the extract units from the wet rooms imposes air renewal for all the dwelling. Only humidity-sensitive air inlets can distribute the new air according to the needs of each main room.

These hybrid ventilation kits combine the benefits of passive stack ventilation with the added advantage of mechanical ventilation.
