PureAir’s management and engineering team has been associated with the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry for more than 30 years. Now, they have sought out the latest and best technological advancements in heat recovery ventilation (HVS) systems to provide superior quality air purification, dehumidification, home ventilation and heating to New Zealand. Pureair is New Zealand’s premium home ventilation system designed especially for Asthmatics and allergy sufferers.
Many people are unaware that the building code in New Zealand gives little or no attention to home ventilation. People all over the country are living in houses with a considerable amount of moisture, which can become a serious issue to both your property and your health.
People throughout New Zealand wake up in the morning to find condensation on windows, or are beginning to notice mould on walls, ceilings and under carpets. The old-fashioned way to remove mould and mildew has been to open windows and doors to increase natural airflow but unfortunately, this is neither practical nor safe due to poor air quality, issues of safety, and heat regulation in colder months.
With this knowledge, the first home ventilation system business was established 16 years ago to address the issues of home heating and air humidity. The idea was simple; transfer air from the roof cavity and blow it throughout the house, circulating warmer, drier air.
It not only worked in keeping homes dry, but because the air temperature in the roof cavity is much warmer than in the home, it provided affordable heating, making the installation of a HVS system a very practical and cost-effective solution.
As the HVS industry expanded, air filtration became a factor, and was introduced by some New Zealand companies. Many HVS systems initially used paper filter bags, similar to those found in vacuum cleaners. However, research later emerged to show that more effective forms of filtration were available.
Homes in New Zealand that are within 500 meters of a main highway are extremely vulnerable to the hazards of poor air quality, especially as it relates to peoples’ respiratory tracts. In fact, Auckland has the highest rates of child asthma in the world.
For this reason, we knew that New Zealand needed a quality filtration system that could reliably purify and filter air to a safe level. When developing the PureAir HVS , we opted to use a filter manufactured by a leading European company (AFPRO) whose filters are all rated under ASHRAE , the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers. We selected a filter with a F8 rating, and to the best of our knowledge, we are the only home ventilation company in New Zealand to utilise this superior standard filter.
When it comes to the quality of air you are breathing, you and your family deserve only the best. For a healthier home, you need a New Zealand HVS system that effectively pumps warm, dry air throughout the house, and purifies that air effectively to rid it of harmful pollutants, VOCs, and mould spores.
