A little bit about us

Fresh thinking goes a long way

HRV was founded in 2003 by two Kiwi entrepreneurs, who were passionate about improving the state of NZ homes. They saw that ventilation could make a big difference to the damp, dripping homes that many New Zealanders lived in – and it all went from there.

We introduced the great benefits of home ventilation to kiwi homeowners, and our market-leading products quickly became recognised as the go-to for families wanting relief from damp, unhealthy homes, especially when health issues such as asthma and allergies were part of the problem.

Over the years we’ve developed our healthy thinking even further. We believe that with a country as pure as ours there’s no excuse for 1/3 of all kiwi homes to have a serious mould and damp issue. As for our drinking water, it’s far from wholesome either, with many unhealthy “added extras” like chlorine and heavy metals in the mix.

So, we’ve made it our mission to make the air and water inside New Zealand homes as healthy as it is outside. We call it, the invironment.

With a family of over 170,000 customers, we have your whole home covered with ventilation, heating, cooling, water filtration and window solutions, and our team of over 400 employees work hard to make our products and service the best you can find.

We must be doing something right as our HRV ventilation solutions have been given a Sensitive Choice accreditation, and we work closely with Allergy NZ too, to help raise awareness and reduce the triggers for respiratory illnesses.

That fresh HRV thinking has paid off for many families around New Zealand, and we’re not stopping anytime soon.
