Unlike conventional ventilation systems, LivingBetter is ductless. Dispense with the ductwork and you not only save on the cost of fitting and materials, but you can also choose either to give occupants higher ceilings or to build more floors into your property for the same investment costs.
If your high-rise residential property is tall enough, ceiling space saved often sums up to additional housing units.
A mechanical ventilation system needs electricity to pump fresh air into every room. LivingBetter’s natural ventilation allows fresh air to enter the building through our window panels. The system exploits the chimney effect and requires no electrical power.
In new residential properties where the building envelope is super-insulated, it makes perfect sense to install electrical ventilation. Electrical ventilation makes a good building envelope even better. By default, stale air rises and takes moisture with it when it escapes through mandatory exhaust air outlets.
To reap full benefit of your LivingBetter system, just combine strategically located ventilation windows with a central extract air heat pump.
The heat pump creates slight negative pressure that boosts the flow of fresh air through the ventilation windows. When air extracted from the living areas enters a centrally located heat pump, the pump recovers the energy and provides residents with cheap domestic hot water.
