When the temperature cools down outside and you crank up the heating do you get lots of condensation on your windows? Is your woodwork getting mouldy? Feeling a little unwell?
Whether you live in Fendalton or Ferrymead, Spreydon or Strowan, we all suffer the same issues in our homes if we don’t have correct ventilation. Find out about just what ventilation contractors can do for your home, office or business premises below.
Ventilation specialists: What they do
The main area of specialization in the field is in installing full home ventilation systems for customers. These systems may be one of two different types: balanced pressure systems and positive pressure systems. Positive pressure systems work by forcing the air from your roof cavity into your space. Balanced pressure systems pull the air from outside the home in, and draw the stale air out. Both of these systems may be paired with a heat pump so that the temperature inside doesn’t drop too much and leave people inside shivering with the cold.
Ventilation professionals may also perform other similar jobs in the home such as installing central heating under your floors, installing extractor fans in the kitchen and bathroom for taking away heat and moisture, and maintaining and fixing current ventilation or heating systems already in your house.
Ventilation experts: How much they cost
If you are looking at installing a ventilation system for the whole home then you will want to choose from the positive pressure system and the balanced pressure system. The positive pressure system, such as the well known DVS and HRV systems, will cost between $3,600 and $6,500 for a four bedroom home, whereas the balanced pressure system will cost between $4,800 and $9,100 for the same space. A heat pump for the system will cost a further $2,900 to $4,300 on top of that.
Smaller jobs, especially where you have already bought the vent kit yourself from the hardware store, will come in at a cheaper price. As with all tradies, get the ventilation specialist to come and inspect your home and circumstances before they prepare a quote for you.
Ventilation contractors: How to hire one
Post an ad on our site to get maximum exposure to the ventilation contractors of Christchurch. When you have several contacts you can examine their online reputations and contact their references. Ask these potential hires if they get a commission on certain types of systems sold – often a ventilation specialist may receive a larger commission from one company than another, prompting them to endorse that product more readily.
