ENVIRONMENTAL VENTILATION FOR A HEALTHY HOME ALL YEAR ROUND

 

WHAT IS IT?

 

Essentially, our environmental home ventilation system is designed to rid any dwelling of the environmental factors (mould spores, VOC's, dust mites etc) that are contributing to the ill health of occupants of the dwelling. By constantly filtering and refreshing the internal air, our system cleanses the internal air of all airborne particulates that are responsible for the vast majority of ailments that afflict so many people living in our society.

The Enviromaster.

 

Each room of the dwelling has two diffusers installed in the ceiling ( pictured below) which are ducted onto our Enviromaster installed in the roof void (pictured above). When the system is operational, the air from the room gets sucked up into the Enviromaster where it passes through a triple filtration process. This triple

 

 

filtration system consists of an initial HEPA filter which removes all airborne particles to the size of 99.97 microns. The freshly scrubbed air next passes through a charcoal filter which removes odour and Volatile Organic Compounds. The final HEPA filter freshly scrubs and cleanses the air again and then the now clean air gets pushed back into the room through the second diffuser mounted in the ceiling. This cycle continues constantly, cleaning the indoor air, removing dust mites, mould spores, pollens, odours, and all other manner of airborne particulates, leaving fresh, cleansed air to breathe. Windows and doors do not need to be opened.

 

Operational procedure

 

Pre install moisture and environmental testing

 

Prior to installing our Enviromaster system, we conduct numerous environmental tests which provide us with information on the airborne particulate count, and the humidity levels in the dwelling. Our array of scientific instruments can provide you with a detailed snapshot of the health of the dwelling. This snapshot of the health of the dwelling allows us to operate the system to maximise its effectiveness in the early stages of running the Enviromaster.

 

Operational procedure

 

Once installed and operational, our system cleanses the entire air in the dwelling six times per hour when operational and we set the system to exchange the air a minimum of 24 times per day, but each installation is set up differently depending on the amount of contamination present. If for example, the contamination is high (tests are conducted before installation and monitored monthly for the first three months after installation) and occupants are suffering from allergic reactions, then we will set the system to initially run for up to 12 - 16 hours per day and then, as the contaminations reduce and the health of the occupants recovers, the operating time is reduced.

 

Post install monitoring

 

Following the installation of the Enviromaster, part of our service includes ongoing monitoring of the operations of the Enviromaster and the health of the building. Once a month for the first three months (and annually thereafter) we return to the dwelling to undertake more environmental tests which will determine the time we continue to run the Enviromaster. As the health of the dwelling improves, we can reduce the running time of the system until we find a happy medium which keeps the dwelling almost completely free of airborne particulates.

 

Our competitors' systems

 

It is very important to understand the uniqueness of our system compared to others on the market. Our competitors' systems introduces air into the dwelling which is taken from the roof void, filtered and introduced into the building envelope. There are several major drawback to this system.

1. Contaminated roof void - The roof void is THE most contaminated area (and certainly the dustiest) of any dwelling and the last place that we would consider introducing air from into the living area of any dwelling. Rats, possums, dust, lead, asbestos - all can reside in the roof void. Have a look some time. Despite any filtering that is in place, the chance that the air being pushed into the dwelling is clean, fresh and germ and odour free, is doubtful.

2. Heat - the temperature in the roof void is consistently 20°C higher than in the living areas - and in summer the temperatures often reach 70°C. Introducing this hot air into any dwelling during summer is extremely unwise.
