Easy Ways of Improving Ventilation Systems in Your Home

Gone are the days when our window curtains used to sway before us. Most homes and buildings in NZ are now required to have airtight building envelopes. Unintended gaps around space can lead to air leakage which decreases the efficiency of your cooling and heating system. Improving ventilation systems are left behind.

There’s no doubt that modern temperature control methods (such as air conditioning and heating systems) have made our lives much more comfortable. We’re cool when we need to be and warm when it matters most. One problem though is that the damp and stale air that can develop as a result isn’t good for anyone.

A centralised or decentralised ventilation system can solve this problem, and even more so with the appropriate help from you. Start by trying these simple tips to boost the impact of your ventilation system.

Improving Ventilation with Pockets of Open Space

If you’re building from scratch or a renovation is on the cards, make room for an open foyer or atrium to encourage the free-flow of air. Don’t worry if this isn’t an option. You can clear up space you already have and keep it uncluttered. The hot air will dissipate more easily in the warm months.

Improving Ventilation with Cool Water Features

A water feature is an elegant element in garden design and landscape architecture. They can range in sizes from tabletop water fountains to huge indoor waterfalls. Installing one inside or outside a property provides additional curb appeal and healthy perks.

Getting smaller water feature installations in and around the home (perhaps in the pockets of open space we mentioned) is useful. The water serves as a cooling medium for the air before it exits through the vents. All you have to do for warmth is to shut the water feature off during winter or when it gets cold.


North and South-Facing Windows for the Win

Remember: The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Avoid direct sunlight entering your home by matching your window orientations to the directions that don’t face the sun. This airflow will work well with the ventilation you have installed by keeping your room from getting too warm.

Improving Ventilation with Plant Trees & Flowers

What better way to encourage fresh, oxygen-rich air than plants? Trees and plants naturally filter the air around you. They absorb the things we hate – polluted air and bad odors. Carbon dioxide, ammonia, nitrogen oxides, and the like, are trapped on the leaves, keeping them away from our daily breathing.

Work with a landscaper you can trust to create low maintenance, healthy garden that shades your roof or patio areas. Well-placed trees can save you from cooling costs, especially in summer seasons. Thus, planting them on the east or west side of your yard is ideal.


Not sure how you can get the temperature in and around your home just right? Better get an expert to improve the condition of your indoor air than playing around the settings. The Heating Company installs top quality, modern ventilation systems for homes. We've been providing solutions since 1994. That’s longer than every other company out there in NZ.
