Keep your home a happy place

Increasingly we find that modern homes are well insulated but very poorly ventilated. 

Condensation, mould, mildew growth and dust mites are proving to be a major issue in New Zealand households.

The problems that result for your family are asthma and allergies and these issues are compounded in the winter months.  Did you know that dust mites need a damp environment to proliferate?
It seems people’s current concerns with security issues and energy efficiency can result in the home being closed up like a sealed box!

 ventilation issues | Degrees Ahead
Generally in the winter we tend to keep our houses sealed up in order to retain heat that we have paid to generate and to keep the cold air out.  Warm air retains moisture better than cool air, so humidity will build up.  When warm air contacts a cooler area such as glass windows, condensation occurs.  Over time this results in mould, mildew and the perfect conditions for dust mites to breed.  This is where Degrees Ahead can help.

We provide high quality systems which can ventilate your home 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  In the past a limited solution would be to open a window but this does not allow adequate ventilation and posesses a high security risk.

Our systems pass the ventilated air through a high grade heat exchanger and filter before being gently distributed around the home via diffusers set in the ceiling at strategic points.  The continuous circulation of fresh dry air creates a positive pressure in the home which pushes the damp stale air out of the home.
