Two-zone system

Silent ventilation

The two-zone system means you'll get fresh air without the noise. In fact, you won't even notice it's there.

A home ventilation system improves air quality by bringing in fresh outdoor air and removing stale indoor air. It uses a heat exchanger to keep temperatures and humidity levels stable, therefore reducing heating costs. It also uses filters to help remove pollutants and allergens, making the air cleaner and healthier to breathe.

A DUCO Centralized HRV system improves indoor air quality by bringing in fresh outdoor air and removing stale indoor air. It does this by using a heat exchanger, which keeps the indoor temperature much more stable.

There are two main components to the ventilation system:

1) Heat exchanger: The heat exchanger is a device that transfers heat from stale indoor air to fresh outdoor air. This helps keep the indoor temperature stable, which reduces heating costs.

2) Filters: The system also contains filters that help to remove pollutants and allergens from the air. These filters capture and neutralize pollutants in the air, making the air inside your home or office cleaner and healthier to breathe.

In addition to this, the DUCO Centralized HRV system automatically adjusts the fan speed based on the air quality. There is also a controller and timer function, which operates inside the different rooms that the system is used in. This allows you to set the system to run for a specific period of time.

Having your DUCO Centralized HRV system regularly inspected is key to ensuring its reliability and longevity. This may include cleaning the DucoVents, replacing filters and checking for leaks or other issues.

It is also important to keep supply and exhaust vents clear of any obstructions and regularly check the filter replacement indicator to ensure that the filters are not clogged and need replacing.

Airflow and temperature in different rooms of your home or office should also be considered and checked regularly to ensure the system is distributing fresh air evenly throughout the building.

A ventilation system helps improve indoor air quality in a number of notable ways.

Whilst bringing in fresh outdoor air it also removes stale indoor air. This process is known as “air exchange”. It removes and dilutes air pollution, allergens and other contaminants.

1) Vents: A ventilation system uses a combination of supply DucoVents and exhaust DucoVents to circulate fresh air throughout a building. It then distributes this fresh air using HEPA filters. They filter and therefore neutralise the indoor air making a healthier and cleaner place to breathe.

2) Reduced allergies and asthma symptoms: A ventilation system helps reduce the symptoms of allergies and asthma by removing particles from the air.

3) Reducing odours: Everyday activities, like cooking create unwanted odours. A ventilation system helps remove these unpleasant smells, making your living environment more comfortable.

4) Improving comfort: A ventilation system can help to create a more comfortable and enjoyable living or working space. It removes pollutants, bad smells and allergens, creating a cleaner, safer place for you.

Poor ventilation affects both your home and your health. Poorly ventilated homes can cause humidity to build up leading to mould and musty odours in drywall or other building materials. A build-up of moisture can also lead to structural damage and rot, which can attract vermin and further infestations.So as a consequence of this another problem that can occur is that buildings can become too hot or cold, which leads to increased energy usage and therefore costs. The build-up of mould, bacteria and poor air quality can also lead to respiratory problems, allergies and fatigue. The two problems are interlinked and improving ventilation manages to help both issues.

Solutions to improve air quality

There are lots of solutions to solve poor air quality. Natural ventilation solutions such as opening windows, avoiding candles or using fireplaces will help. However, most effective is to install a mechanical ventilation system which is an effective and sustainable solution for improving air quality. If you have one already in place, changing and cleaning filters can bring immense benefits.

There are four main ways that an efficient ventilation system can reduce living and household costs. These are:

1) Energy savings: An HRV system (which is the most impactful way to save costs) helps with energy savings. It transfers heat from outgoing air into the fresh air in a way that keeps the temperature stable. This reduces the need for heating, saving energy costs.

2) Reduced heating and cooling loads: By exchanging outdoor air and removing stale indoor air, the ventilation system helps reduce the heating and cooling loads of an HVAC system. In turn, this helps prolong the life of HVAC equipment. This subsequently reduces maintenance costs.

3) Reduced allergies and asthma: The Duco Centralized HRV System significantly helps reduce the symptoms of allergies and asthma by removing harmful particles from the air.

4) Low maintenance cost: The Duco system has a low maintenance cost and is built from high-quality materials and advanced technology, making it durable and long-lasting.

A professional ventilation installer assesses the building and evaluates the cost. They should then consider the building’s size and number of occupants for the safest and most efficient system and ventilation installation process. They design a suitable ventilation system, taking into account building regulations and updates needed for older buildings before the Ducoflex ductwork is installed. The system needs to be accessible so it can be regularly tested and inspected for maintenance and renovation.

The installation of a ventilation system requires a few steps:

1) Assessment: A professional assesses the building to determine the type of ventilation system that is best suited for the space. This takes into consideration factors such as the size of the building, the number of occupants, and the level of air pollution in the area.

2) Design: The next step is designing the ventilation system. This includes the layout of the Ducoflex ductwork, the location of the supply and exhaust vents and the size and type of equipment needed.

3) Installation: The installation of the ventilation system typically begins with the Ducoflex ductwork. This is then connected to the supply and exhaust vents, which are typically located on the walls or ceilings of the building.

4) Testing: Once the installation is complete, the professional will test the system to ensure that it is working properly and making sure that the airflow is balanced and that the system meets the requirements of the building code.

5) Maintenance: Any ventilation system requires regular inspection so it is important to ensure you have regular checks done by your installer.

Removing hidden risks

You want to keep your home warm, but that could put you at risk of mould. The CHRV system solves that problem.
