PureAir isn’t just a home ventilation system – it is a dehumidifier, air purifier, and an effective and affordable home heating system. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of a PureAir HVS system.
One of the major benefits of the PureAir HVS is that it functions as a powerful dehumidifier – reducing the level of humidity in your home by as much as 50 per cent. Using a dehumidifier extends the life of your home, furnishings, carpet and drapes, removing mould and mildew that plagues so many New Zealand homes.
Even more importantly, the PureAir HVS can improve the health of your family by reducing the incidence and risk of respiratory ailments such as asthma and bronchitis. This is because dehumidifying kills dust mites, commonly found in mattresses and soft furnishings in New Zealand’s moisture rich climate.
Recent research conducted by the New South Wales University of Technology determined that volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are present in every home, are a more significant danger to your health than carbon monoxide.
VOCs are emitted as gasses from a range of solids and liquids including paint and lacquers, home cleaning products, building materials and furnishings, and mould spores. Symptoms of prolonged exposure to VOCs include eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, nausea, allergic skin reactions, asthma, and fatigue.
The PureAir home ventilation system deals with this problem directly, working as an air purifier and pumping pure, filtered air through your home a minimum of three times every hour.
Outdoor air pollution enters your home every day, bringing in a range of toxic pollutants. Outdoor air pollution is well known by health authorities to increase the risk of asthma, strokes, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, and has also been linked with sudden infant death syndrome, low birth weights and some cancers.
Air pollution is a concern for all of New Zealand, but particularly for Auckland. Current air quality measurements taken by the Auckland Regional Council indicates that Auckland has higher carbon monoxide (CO) levels than London.
Auckland’s air pollution is mainly caused by car exhaust, and presents significant health risks to Aucklanders through contaminants including Fine particles (PM10 and PM2.5), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Carbon monoxide (CO), Sulphur dioxide (SO2) Ozone (O3), and Hydrocarbons.
In every home, the roof cavity acts as a solar panel, absorbing and capturing heat energy. By installing the PureAir HVS system, you can redirect that heat energy into the living areas of your home. In the wintertime, this can provide up to five degrees of additional warmth for your family, at minimal cost.
With the PureAir HVS system, you can protect your most precious assets – the health of your family, and the health of your home. Find out more about the PureAir product , or contact us for a no obligation consultation.
