Fresh Air & Home Ventilation verse's Air Conditioning
Now we all are aware of air conditioning and just how well it performs in summer, and of course in winter.
The heating and cooling cycle is very effective and depending on the type and size of the system, the economy of operation is very well positioned as an effecient appliance in the use of energy.
There is however another way of cooling your entire home at a lower purchase price and at a fraction of the running costs.
The method is forced fresh air ventilation
This is a natural
method of cooling and is
achieved by very slow air
movement passing over your
body and evaporating perspiration
exactly as a breeze or a fan would do.
Because this system is so simple in principle, so is the appliance. The fan unit is mounted into the ceiling and uses an offset belt drive resulting in low fan speed and this results in very low sound levels. All the ceiling cavity air is evacuated by ventilators either in the gable ends or under the eaves. The movement of the incoming air is controlled by opening and closing the windows in your home and therefore varying the incoming amount of air in every room in the home.
The system improves the total atmosphere in the home and does this at a fraction of the running cost of an air conditioner. You must remember, however, that you are not lowering the air temperature in the home as an air conditioning system would do, but because of this feature you are not closing your home up and recycling the same air over and over again.
This has major advantages and has positive application in all homes.
Remember, fresh air ventilation has a very low energy requirement for it's operation and therefore is a favoured appliance in assisting in the reduction of Green House Gas Emission.
