Poor Home ventilation allows moisture and airborne pollutants to build up inside your home. This can cause health problems such as asthma for you and other members of your household. Moisture can also make your home uncomfortable to live in and damage its structure.
Home Ventilation Systems, Does it really make any difference?
Yes. A 2005 BRANZ survey of the condition of New Zealand homes found that many were damp and poorly ventilated.
Most bathrooms relied only on windows for ventilation. Only half of kitchens vented moist air to the outside. And 40% of timber-framed homes had poor or seriously inadequate subfloor ventilation.

Our Zephyr Ventilation System was installed in our home in 2013, very kindly donated by JSR Refrigeration & Air Conditioning when my young son Luca was having cancer treatment in Starship Hospital. The intense super chemo drugs that Luca had while having Bone Marrow Transplant severely affected his lungs and it was life threatening for him to live in a damp environment, not only because of his lungs, but also because the immune system is so compromised by having chemotherapy that mould is a killer for kids having chemo.
South Waikato is one of the most damp and cold places in north island. I’ve had HRV / DVS in my rental properties however this one (Zephyr) ACTUALLY works EVEN during the coldest nights (up to -6 degrees outside) without freezing your house where as others fail to deliver especially during the cold nights in winters when you need it the most.
