Are you going through cans of air freshener like it’s going out of style, or burning candles all day long to try and cover up musty smells? Sub floor ventilation can fix the root cause of musty smells – usually underfloor damp. Fix the damp problems and you can breathe easy in your home with fresh, clean, healthy air, not sickly artificial fragrances.
Under floor damp problems are common with many Sydney homes. The great news is that sub floor ventilation is an easy and cost effective way to manage that damp, preventing damp air and associated musty smells from entering your home.
Using powerful, yet energy-efficient and whisper-quiet fans, we remove trapped damp air from the sub floor, and replace it with fresh air through new or existing passive vents. With the damp air removed, musty smells entering the home is cut off at the source.
An alternative to sub floor ventilation if access is restrictive is forced air ventilation. This is also an excellent system to use in conjunction with sub floor ventilation to create a consistent environment of fresh, dry, healthy air throughout your home.
Air is drawn into the roof space, where it is filtered, and heated if necessary, before being evenly distributed throughout the home. As well as fighting musty smells by distributing clean, dry air throughout the home, this can also reduce heating bills by harnessing radiant heat trapped in the roof space.
Fresh, healthy air should be a given for every home, but for many homes, an unhealthy environment can lead to a range of serious health problems. Home ventilation can help you to keep your family thriving.
