New Zealand homes are becoming more airtight. A healthy home ventilation system plays a major role in removing the buildup of moisture, carbon monoxide, and all the other pollutants.
In simple terms, ventilation is the exchange of outdoor and indoor air, either by natural or mechanical means. Natural ventilation occurs through the openings of a building’s envelope. Whereas, mechanical ventilation is the controlled way of swapping the dirty indoor air for clean air.
A healthy home ventilation system prevents the build-up of excessive moisture and polluted gases. These unwanted things can cause damage to your health, lead to mould growth, and structural damage.
The efficiency of your home ventilation system is categorised into 3:
This refers to homes that have no planned or structured home ventilation at all. Ventilation is limited to the uncontrolled movement of air through doors and windows (when they are open), and other existing gaps that a draught may get through.
This refers to homes that have some ventilation outlet built into the structure, stand-alone appliances that impact ventilation in some way, or a combination of both.
This refers to homes that have a ventilation system installed by a ventilation specialist. This is the only way to ensure your home has the proper ventilation required for healthy living.
Homes with poor ventilation could pose health risks that you’re unaware of, by causing the following problems to occur.
Start by trying these simple tips to boost your ventilation and indoor air quality.
Clear up space and keep it uncluttered. The hot air will dissipate more easily in the warm months.
Getting smaller water feature installations in and around the home is useful. The water serves as a cooling medium for the air before it exits through the vents.
Avoid direct sunlight entering your home by matching your window orientations to the directions that don’t face the sun.
Trees and plants naturally filter the air around you. They absorb the things we hate – polluted air and bad odours.

I just wanted to quickly get in touch to say thank you very much for the kind offer on the Lunos Ventilation System. It has certainly made a significant difference to the dampness in the house, especially in the cold few months we have had down here. We have had virtually no condensation and we used to have to get the towels out each morning. And my partner Cat has noticed that a few minor breathing issues have come right as well. So has certainly made a big difference and its really appreciated.Terry O’Donnell
