HRV has a thriving trade division, supplying
many major developers and builders with systems to make the
homes they help build warmer, drier, healthier and more energy
efficient. In fact, many architects and designers now specify
HRV as a standard in their designs.

Builders, why you should discuss ventilation with your
- New homes are being sealed up really tightly with new
requirements for insulation, building wrap and double glazing.
- The building code requires at least 0.35 air changes per hour
or at least one complete air change every 3 hours.
- The G4 code states that this shall be achieved by providing a
net openable area of windows or other openings of no less than 5 %
of the floor area.
- Home owners are creating anything up to 20 or 30 litres of
moisture per day by showering, cooking, breathing etc.
- A Californian study showed that less than 17% of their home
owners open more than one window on a regular basis for
ventilation. We believe that NZ figures are very similar.
- Because we're not ventilating our homes on a regular basis,
high levels of moisture are retained within the building envelope,
leading to mould and other problems.
- As a builder,your reputation is based on the functionality of
your homes, which can be drastically affected by excess moisture
- Double glazing has the effect of raising the temperature of the
internal glass and thus may reduce the amount of condensation on
this area. However the actual level of moisture is likely to have
been increased and the condensation is now more likely to appear on
the aluminium unless the thermally broken suite is used.

What's Up House Inspections
What's Up House Inspection Franchisesproud to be associated with
HRV.Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will
ever make. To minimise unpleasant surprises and unexpected
difficulties, you'll want to learn as much as you can about the
newly constructed or existing home before you buy it. An inspection
may identify the need for repairs or builders oversights, as well
as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the
inspection you will know more about the home which will allow you
to make decisions with confidence.When we inspect homes it is quite
common to find internal moisture problems, mould and mildew due to
a lack of ventilation - when we come across problems like these we
always recommend installing a HRV ventilation system.
