As home owners, we often focus on making our homes more comfortable by keeping the temperature just right. However, an essential aspect of home comfort that is often overlooked is indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can lead to a number of issues for both your home and your family. One way to improve the indoor air quality of your home is by installing a home ventilation system.

What is a home ventilation system?

A home ventilation system is designed to circulate fresh air throughout your home and remove stale air. This not only ensures that the air that you breathe is fresh, but it can also help to manage moisture issues in your home. 

A ventilation system works by exchanging indoor air with outdoor air, providing a constant flow of fresh air into your home.

There are several types of home ventilation systems available and ensuring that the system you install is right for your home is important. 


How does a ventilation system work?

A home ventilation system typically consists of a fan, ductwork and vents. The fan pulls in the outdoor air and circulates in through the ductwork into the various rooms of your home.

As the fresh air enters, it pushes the stale air out. Some systems also provide filtering and condition the incoming air to remove pollutants, regulate humidity and control temperature.


The Lossnay Ventilation System

The Lossnay Ventilation system from Mitsubishi Electric is a patented heat recovery ventilation solution that uses fresh air from outside (not dusty attic air) to ventilate your home. The system was designed specifically for New Zealand conditions and works by extracting stale air from inside your home and replacing it with allergen-reduced fresh air from outside. 

Lossnay’s unique Heat Recovery Technology collects up to 86% of the heat energy in outgoing air which is then used to pre-warm or cool the fresh air vented in. In doing so, moisture build up in your home is minimised while healthy humidity levels are maintained and managed in the most energy efficient way possible.
