Every day we spend around 90% of our time indoors, mainly at home and in the workplace. Confined spaces have a limited amount of air, which we consume with every breath. A person takes an average of 22,000 breaths a day, passing about 12,000 liters of air into the lungs.
Indoor air is up to 20 times more polluted
For our health it is important to breathe clean air, rich in oxygen and free of pollutants which unfortunately accumulate and concentrate precisely in closed and not ventilated environments. As confirmed by multiple studies, indoor air can be 5 to 20 times more polluted than outdoor air. In the absence of adequate ventilation, indoor air tends to deteriorate, saturating itself with harmful substances that can be very dangerous to health. Among the harmful elements we can find ultra-fine powders, fumes, combustion gases, formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds released by chemical detergents, glues and furnishing materials. To this are added pollutants of biological origin - microorganisms such as allergens, molds, bacteria, viruses carried by aerosols and of physical origin such as the dreaded radon gas.
The ventilation units are decentralized VMCs with double continuous flow with counter-current crossed air flows. The exhausted air, full of humidity and CO2, is sucked from the internal environment and made to flow into the heat exchanger where - without contact between the two flows - it transfers its heat to the incoming air flow which is simultaneously entered from outside.
The fresh air, richer in oxygen, is preheated and purified by a high-performance filter that stops smog, particulate matter and pollen. This technology allows constant and balanced air exchange in closed environments, ensuring superior performance in terms of energy efficiency, air purification and internal comfort.
Healthiness and energy saving
Energy saving is maximized by the enthalpy heat exchanger, which recovers up to 91% of the heat of the exhausted air at the outlet, with TÜV SÜD certified performance according to the EN 13141-8 standard.
The F7 filter (ePM 65%) prevents the entry not only of dust and pollen, but also of PM10 and PM2.5 particles, protecting the healthiness of the air breathed in the house.
The silent operation and verified values of noise reduction on the façade contribute to creating optimal acoustic comfort.
Benefits of VMC
- ensures air that is always renewed and rich in oxygen
- counteracts the airborne spread of viruses and bacteria
- filters the outside air from fine dust and pollen
- evacuates excess moisture, counteracting condensation and mold problems
- dilutes CO2 and pollutants dispersed in indoor air
- decreases allergens and mites
- reduces fumes and bad smells
- mitigates the risk of radon gas
