New Zealand's Home Ventilation Specialists

The average New Zealand home produces around 100 litres of moisture a week* through cooking, cleaning, showering and general living. If not actively removed that moisture can lead to condensation, mould and airborne nasties and family health problems.

A home ventilation system from SmartVent quietly ventilates your home with fresher, drier air ; removing condensation and moisture and a creating healthier, more comfortable living environment.

Avoiding home allergy exposures may improve your asthma. More than 5% of Americans have asthma, causing missed days of school, work, and unwanted visits to the ER and hospital. Allergens are one of the most common reasons asthma symptoms flare. Importantly, there are a number of things you can do in your home to prevent your asthma from worsening. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, these 10 things will help keep your asthma in check:

10 Things for a Healthier Home

  1. Tell smokers to take it outside
    Secondhand smoke is a common asthma trigger. Encourage people to quit and make sure they smoke outside, not in your home or car.
  2. Sleep well, little dust mite!
    Dust mites are also common asthma triggers. Covering mattresses and pillows with dust-proof zippered covers and washing all bedding once a week in hot water will help keep the mites at bay.
  3. Watch air quality
    Poor air quality with high levels of ozone and particle pollution can worsen asthma symptoms and trigger asthma attacks. Watch for the Air Quality Index (AQI) during your local news, or check out this daily map with warnings for cities having a poor AQI day, provided by the Environmental Protection Agency. If the AQI in your community is poor, consider limiting outdoor activities.
  4. A little cleaning can go a long way
    Regularly dusting with a damp cloth and vacuuming carpet and fabric-covered furniture when asthma sufferers are out of the house can reduce dust exposures. Using a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum cleaner and filters can reduce exposure to dusts that may make your asthma worse.
  5. Defend your territory
    Household pets' dander, skin flakes, urine and saliva can trigger asthma. While it's best to keep the pets outside, keep them out of the bedroom if this is not possible.
  6. Pests are unwelcome guests
    Cockroaches are a pain to get rid of (they have been here for thousands of years, after all). Don't make things worse by leaving food or garbage out. Always clean up messes and spills, and store food in airtight containers.
  7. Be careful what you spray
    Instead of pesticide sprays, control pests by using baits or traps. If sprays are necessary, always circulate fresh air into the room being treated and keep asthma sufferers out of that room for several hours after any spraying.
  8. Breaking the mould is key
    Mould is another common asthma trigger. If you can control the moisture in your home, you can control the mould. Wash and dry hard surfaces to prevent and remove mould. Make sure to replace mouldy ceiling tiles and carpet.
  9. Ventilation
    Reducing the moisture will control asthma triggers like mould, cockroaches and dust mites. Use exhaust fans or open windows when cooking and showering. Fix leaky plumbing or other unwanted sources of water.
  10. Plan, plan, plan
    Work with the doctor or healthcare provider to develop a written asthma management plan that includes information on asthma triggers and how to manage them.

Benefits Of Installing A Proper Home Ventilation System

A home ventilation system produces fresh air from the outside and drives out the impure, stale air from inside, in that way providing a healthy living condition for the entire household. It also helps to keep humidity levels under control.

The air flowing in your house is often over-used. This is simply because fresh air gets in only when you open doors or windows. Since today's homes are made more energy efficient , indoor air quality deteriorates and houses suffocate and drown in toxic air. And because natural air-flow is restricted, these homes struggle to breathe.

Today's typical tendency to conserve energy directly affects the indoor pollution levels within a home. Without enough home ventilation, the pollutants keep growing and gain deeper concentration. You will find lots of origins to these pollutants and some like moulds, give much more trouble if the humidity levels are higher. So this is another problem which may arise from insufficient indoor air flow.

Inside a home where the humidity levels are higher, the mould, mildew and rot can spell total disaster. If mould spreads throughout the house, the consequences can be extreme, and in severe cases might make the entire home unlivable too.

Dust mites are yet another problem with having higher humidity levels indoors. These are quite regular in households, but they flourish much more in a humid environment . So you might take this under serious consideration if you or anyone in your house suffers from dust mite allergies.

Low humidity levels are no consolation either. They often result in nasal irritation, throat problems and dry skin. Moreover, wood shrinks and cracks in low humidity. So this can even take its toll on your hardwood flooring — that can as well make creaky noises when you walk on them. Probably the most obvious symptom of low humidity is static electricity.

To give your household members a healthy living environment, start by putting in a proper home ventilation system because it's highly essential and is not hard to do.

Probably the most substantial parts of a home ventilation system are—air exchangers, ventilators for heat recovery, exhaust fans within the bathroom and kitchen, dryer vents, air flow fans for the attic, and vents for the crawl space and attic.

Within the absence of correct home ventilation, these are some of the pollutants that may creep in and grow within your house— mould spores, dust mites, pollen, lead, pesticides, pet dander , tobacco smoke, household chemicals, paints, solvents, cleaning supplies etc.

Without having sufficient home ventilation, you may also face problems with carbon monoxide , carbon dioxide and soot coming from heating systems that run on fuel.

You will find some really important health benefits to having a proper home ventilation system too. Allergy and asthma symptoms can be severe along with other respiratory problems and diseases that are widespread among people nowadays.

Our Homes Are Making Us Sick

A quarter of a million homes are so cold, damp and poorly built they are causing serious health problems, according to a significant new study.

The problem with the houses - which are poorly insulated, some with black mould and potentially toxic air quality - could cost more than $20 billion to put right, say report authors.

It is not just a problem with old homes. Many new homes and renovated homes lack adequate insulation, heating, ventilation and double-glazing, as builders and landlords invest their money instead in superficial improvements to increase houses' value.

The New Zealand Business Council for Sustainable Development, which commissioned the survey of 3500 households, says the country is suffering a "massive" housing problem and it has called for law changes to bring homes up to scratch.


Respondents said they and their children suffered from a wide range of illnesses, including sinus problems, mould allergies, asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia, caused by damp and badly insulated homes.

Business Council chief executive Peter Neilson says, "Talk to anyone coming to New Zealand and they say they have never been colder in homes."

The problem has been made worse by rising electricity costs. People responding to the survey said they had been forced to move into the lounge during winter to keep warm; and mould and damp had caused their children to be repeatedly admitted to hospital with respiratory and other health problems.
