Commercial Ventilation Systems
The size of the ventilation system is directly proportional to its air change per hour. Large systems have high air change per hour and vice versa. If your house or office has a large volume or many occupants, you need to go for a big ventilation system as a small one might not supply sufficient fresh air for all the occupants of the building. In addition, when considering the size of the ventilation system to buy it is important to consider the size of space available for the equipment’s location. If there isn’t enough space it is better you buy a small one than go for a big one that will force you to put it in an inappropriate location.
Ventilation systems produce noise of varying levels. If you plan to locate the ventilation system in places that require quiet such as study rooms and bedrooms with infants, it is advisable that you go for a ventilation system with very low sound ratings.
It is important that you carefully check the ducts of the extraction systems because they have a significant impact on the ventilation system’s energy efficiency. Metal and plastic ducts are often the most preferable. There are other ducts that may require that you carry out additional insulation to prevent condensation and increase the system’s energy efficiency. Avoid such ducts as they increase the costs of maintaining the system.
As these tips show, buying a ventilation system that best meets your needs requires that you not only have some basic knowledge of the various aspects of ventilation systems but also have your needs clearly spelt out.
Even before many people became aware of the negative effects of air pollution on health, there was already widespread usage of ventilation systems to maintain humidity and temperatures at levels that are comfortable, remove contaminants that are airborne and provide fresh supply of fresh air in home and office buildings. Thanks to these uses, ventilation systems have become ubiquitous in most parts of the UK and much of the world. However, many people get it wrong when buying ventilation systems and end up buying systems that do not meet their needs effectively. Here are some tips of buying a ventilation system that suits your needs.
