Confort at home is not an option… The first objective of a ventilation system is to ensure good indoor air quality, replacing stale air with fresh air from outdoors. While indoor pollution – a result of emissions from the human metabolism, indoor activities, and building materials and furniture – is a complex of many types of pollutants, humidity plays a remarkable and specific role in the residential context.
Combine Indoor Air Quality and energy saving.
DCV is a way of looking at ventilating buildings that is a little different.
‘The Aereco Quality Standard is a genuine and welcome attempt to engage with the supply chain and address many of the problems that have led to widespread failures in ventilation performance noted in recent reports.
The Academy supports initiatives that help to reduce the performance gap. Our Retrofit Coordinator course provides people with knowledge to manage projects successfully. But well-considered initiatives like this from Aereco are also required to build trust with customers that what they ‘get’ is what they ‘bought’.’

“Like a lot of other Social Housing providers, condensation and ventilation are a serious issue within our mixed stock. When the problems are more severe, we have needed to look beyond traditional ventilation and have used Aereco to both help assess the effectiveness of the different systems we have historically used and to then compare them to a trial Aereco property solution. This was carried out to very similar properties with comparable family lifestyles.
We recorded the activities and vapour levels within the properties and were impressed with the results of the Aereco installation which also demonstrated that comfort was maintained as we did not see the significant temperature drops that other systems gave. Residents reported a better living environment and we were happy that our properties were not holding vapour within their structure, which was a concern with other systems we had used previously.”

‘Aereco systems are installed as part of Superhomes deep retrofits. This allows us ensure we can guarantee high indoor air quality for all our clients, which is often overlooked by many retrofit practitioners. Aereco’ products, design, customer support and contractor training already gives the Tipperary Energy Agency confidence in the indoor air quality of our Superhomes projects.’
