Having a healthy environment in your home is not only better for your health but more comfortable in just everyday living.
If your looking at building a new home and this is important to your family you should definitely consider building a “Passive House”. One of the 5 core elements of a Passive House is a Heat Recovery Ventilation System. This system recovers heat from human bodies, appliances & lights and combines fresh filtered air from the outside and is circulated around the home 24/7. This making the homes air quality outstanding every minute of the day.
Passive House has a range of other benefits, if you would like to know more about building a Passive House please visit our page :
