Avoid Toxic Home Syndrome

  • 70% of our time is spent indoors
  • We invest in Heating systems and Insulation, but forget about the Ventilation. All three go hand in hand

Why is Ventilation Important

  • A typical family of 4 produces up to 16 litres (28 pints) of moisture a week.

Causes of Poor Ventilation

  • Washing and Drying indoors
  • Bathing
  • Pollen, Dust Mites
  • Paint
  • Cooking
  • Cleaners, VOC’s

Effects of Poor Ventilation

  • Condensation
  • Bed Bugs
  • Allergies
  • Dampness and Mould
  • Asthma, Respiratory problems

Why is this happening?

  • As we renovate, refurbish and restore older dwellings, we are reducing natural ventilation (leakage) and insulating them to a higher level.
  • New Buildings are constructed to a higher standard of regulation, more effectively sealed and unable to “breath”
  • Moisture, airborne pollutants and particulates cannot erscape the envelope resulting in


Build tight, Ventilate right

  • Implement ventilation measures and choose to live with better Indoor Air Quality for you and your family.
  • Protect the fabric integrity of your home by combatting harmful elements that can degrade the value of your investment
  • Save energy by adopting a balanced approach to Heating, Insulation and Ventilation technologies.

A Balanced Home Environment is a healthier, energy efficient home for both the occupants and the dwelling.
