Choose Ventilation Specialists In Wellington, The Heating, Air Con and Air Quality Experts

Most would say we already have a great quality of life in Wellington. We have the gorgeous views out over the Cook Straight and Wellington Harbour, there’s a happening Wellington arts scene, over 1/3 of us have a bachelor degree or higher, our landscapes were featured in the Lord of the Rings, we could go on!

But if you’ve ever had to suffer from poor ventilation, cold air or overheating in your house or office then you’ll know just how important good ventilation is to your quality of life. If you need some help with installing, removing or fixing ventilation in your home or business then look no further.

What do Wellington’s ventilation specialists do?

Well thought out ventilation can take away heat, moisture in the air (leading to mould), smoke, dust, and smells and replace it with clean air from outside.

They're well known for helping with installation and maintenance of home heating systems and air conditioning solutions.

Ventilation experts can help with installing extractor fans, ducting kits over your stovetop, ducted air conditioning, central heating, and other systems. They will also be able to help with maintenance of current systems as well as repairs or removal.

Ventilation systems are installed in the space below your floors and in the cavity between your roof and your ceiling. Chat to a ventilation expert about getting the best solution for your home or business.

There are many different types of ventilation systems available including both Positive Pressure Systems and Balanced Pressure Systems. PPSs push air into your home from the ceiling cavity, whereas BPSs draw air in from outside while expelling the air from your home. PPSs may help keep the home warmer than BPSs, however the air quality may not be as high. Your contractor may be well versed in a particular system or adept at doing many different jobs. Different systems will suit different situations and spaces. Consult New Zealand’s consumer pages for a good guide to the different systems available.

A contractor may have completed their National Certificate in Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (Mechanical Services) from Competenz, although this is not a requirement of working in the industry.

Where do I find a suitable tradie?

With a ventilation job, it is very important to carefully outline your requirements for the projects. Is there mould on the walls? Is the air stale? Do you want heating? How big is your space? Do you want ducts throughout? Do you know how big your ceiling space is? Do you know if you have insulation up there? There more well thought out your job post is, the easier it will be for a ventilation specialist to determine your choices straight away.

Construct you post and place it on Builderscrack to start receiving inquiries from local ventilation experts who are keen to take on your job.
