No more condensation. No more tears.
If you know your home has weeping windows, you’re definitely not alone. 46% of all kiwi homes are prone to condensation.
With a country as pure as ours there’s no excuse. Especially when it can be as simple as improving the ventilation in your home.
Often during the colder months the old enemy of a comfortable home rears its ugly head. The cause of surface condensation is where moisture from the air comes into contact with a cooler surface. Occasional beads of moisture on your windows usually aren’t a problem, however if your windows are frequently crying and stay that way for a length of time, you probably have a condensation issue.
Dripping condensation and excessive moisture can result in a number of issues for your home and your family's health. Wooden window frames can warp and become difficult to operate. Curtains can grow mould and mildew due to prolonged moisture.
HRV Ventilation solutions are an efficient and effective way of controlling condensation. Positive pressure ventilation acts to expel damp and moisture from your home.
How it works
- Your HRV Next Generation ventilation system acts as the lungs of your home replacing the stale indoor air with fresh filtered air.
- It takes drier and often warmer air from the roof space and filters it before distributing it evenly throughout your home.
- The incoming air is purified through our world-leading nano-fibre filtration technology before it enters your home.
- By creating positive pressure, the stale indoor air is flushed out and replaced with drier, filtered air continually up to two to four times per hour. A drier invironment makes heating and cooling your home more energy efficient. Ventilation also helps to reduce mould, damp, excess condensation and odours.
- You have complete control over the process with our intelligent touchscreen keypad.

According to the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ, one in nine adults and one in seven Kiwi kids have asthma in New Zealand* While 40% of New Zealanders suffer from allergies. Allergies and the rate of environmental allergies, including hay fever, eczema, and dustmites, has doubled in 15 years. Most of the research points to the state of our damp, cold home environments here in NZ and the air we’re subsequently breathing in.

Featured Testimonial: The Bethell family
The Bethell’s moved into a new house with three very young girls. Despite being newly renovated the house had problems with condensation. They didn’t want their kids to suffer from a damp house so they got an HRV ventilation system and noticed an immediate difference. They now enjoy a comfortable house all year round.

I just want to thank Russell and the installation team at HRV Nelson. They did a fantastic job from start to finish. After researching various systems and calling and emailing multiple providers, Russell was the only person to get back to me within 24 hours. He understood what we needed and explained the various options thoroughly - a true professional. The team that came to install were friendly, efficient and knew what they were doing. We had been having problems with a warm lounge due to the wood burner but very cold bedrooms. Since we've installed the system the whole house is now warmer as air is transferred to the colder rooms. We've also noticed a remarkable improvement in the bedroom windows which used to have a lot of condensation on them. If I'd know that the HRV system was going to work so well, I'd have installed it sooner. It has been the best investment that we've made this year.
August 2015 Kevin came to give us a quote and sell the HRV System to us. As it was the end of the winter season, we were unable to gage how effective the system was, however so far this year it has proved to be Amazing, and my life has never been easier. Not having to get up every morning and use two towels to dry all the windows in the house, I think I am made. This has to be the best invention on the face of the earth. The house feels so much drier too. Thanks again heaps for your service, and especially Kevin and the installers.
We recently moved to the Waikato region and after having had HRV installed in our homes in Taranaki and the Bay of Plenty with great success, especially in relation to the removal of condensation, it was a must for us to do the same here. Steve Muhlmann and Johnny( ? surname) did a great and professional job with the installation. We appreciate the advice given about installing an outlet in the garage and are already noticing the benefit there. We highly recommend this system and appreciate the great service support system.
