WHICH HOME VENTILATION SYSTEM IS BEST NZ?

Choosing the Best Home Ventilation System in New Zealand

Maintaining good indoor air quality is essential for a healthy and comfortable home environment. Throughout New Zealand, humidity levels and weather conditions can vary greatly, so a reliable home ventilation system is crucial. They help to improve indoor air quality, reduce condensation and mould growth, and make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient.

But with so many options available, how do you know which one is the best for you?

“We recently had a heat pump installed and I gotta say what a fantastic bunch of people, accommodated us in such a short space of time for a install. They were fast efficient and I highly recommend them, I have spent months looking for a reliable company and these guys are top of the class very impressed with the service, well done team.”

Types of home ventilation systems

There are two main types of home ventilation systems:

  1. High Wall (or Split System) Heat Pumps are one of the most common heat pumps installed in homes. These are the ones that are mounted on a wall in your lounge or bedroom for example. Our range of high wall heat pumps have heating & cooling options, and include Carrier, Daikin, Rinnai and Toshiba – some of NZ’s most trusted heat pump brands.
  2. Ducted Heat Pump systems allow you to heat multiple rooms by distributing the heat through ducts installed in your ceiling. This option is more expensive in the short term but in the long run, this type of ducted system will save you money on heating & cooling bills. Plus, most of these can be used as dehymudifiers, great for getting rid of moisture on your windows etc.

consider the following when choosing a home ventilation system:

  • Climate: Consider your location within New Zealand. Regions with high humidity levels may benefit from positive pressure or HRV systems, while drier regions may do well with extract ventilation.
  • Budget: Your budget will play a significant role in your choice. While HRV systems may have higher upfront costs, they can offer long-term energy savings.
  • Home Size and Layout: The size and layout of your home can influence the type of system that’s most suitable. Larger homes may require more extensive systems to ensure adequate ventilation.
  • Existing Conditions: Assess the existing moisture levels, condensation issues, and indoor air quality in your home. This will help you pinpoint the system that addresses your specific needs.

And don’t forget about your bathroom and kitchen. These rooms produce a lot of steam and condensation so it’s worth getting a rangehood installed in your kitchen and an inline fan in the bathroom. Most times, these can be done within a couple of hours and won’t break the bank!

“Gforce installed extractor fans in both bathrooms. They were very professional and did a good job installing them and kept me appraised of their schedule before arriving. Did a nice job of cleaning up afterward.”
