Why ventilation is needed in aerated concrete houses

The construction of a house begins with the choice of building material. Most often, the choice falls on the fast and cost-effective option, such as a house built of aerated concrete.

Let us first understand what aerated concrete is. This is a lightweight building material that has high thermal insulation properties. Therefore, the house built of aerated concrete will become warm and reliable. To organize comfortable living conditions in such a house, it is necessary to ensure proper air exchange.

We also should take into account high moisture-absorbing properties of aerated concrete. Therefore, it is ventilation in an aerated concrete house that will help minimize the consequences of such characteristics of this building material.

Ventilation systems types

​We suggest that you familiarize yourself with the principles of implementation and equipment that can be used in the organization of ventilation. The ventilation system in a house made of aerated concrete can be arranged in several ways:

  • natural;
  • forced.
Natural ventilation
Natural ventilation

Doesn’t imply a presence of professional air extraction equipment, because its principle is based on the usual ventilation of the dwelling.

Forced: decentralized
Forced: decentralized

It is carried out with compact ventilation units Meltem, Zehnder, Maico PushPull and exhaust fans etc.

01
Consultation

Consultation

Before proposing the concept of a ventilation system for the home, our specialists need to understand the wishes of the client, as well as get all the raw data on the facility. The meeting takes place either at the Alter Air showroom, where everyone can see, feel and manage different ventilation systems, or via video communication. After the meeting, the general decision is taken the concept of the ventilation project, according to which it will be implemented.

02
Pre-project documentation

Pre-project documentation

At this stage, the customer receives a package of documents on the ventilation system, namely: calculation of the air supply volume, as well as a final offer in 3 variants with different pricing solutions. The total cost of the ventilation system for the house, after drawing up an accurate design, can change up to 15% to a bigger or smaller side. At this stage, the client already clearly understands the future implementation of the system.

03
Designing

Designing

After the approval of the offer, we proceed to the design of the ventilation system. During the project preparation, our specialists contact not only the client, but also related specialists (designers, architects, foremen, etc.). After approval, the engineers issue a complete package of design documentation, according to which it is possible to implement the ventilation system even in another company.

04

Important points

Features of designing ventilation in a house made of aerated concrete

When building a private house, from the very beginning it is important to understand how the ventilation system will be organized: it will be natural, forced, or mixed, what equipment will be used. Once you have decided on the type of ventilation, you can begin to design it.

Ventilation in a house made of aerated concrete is designed according to the same principle as in houses made of other building materials. The main thing is that the project is developed by a competent specialist. Since without a quality project, the ventilation system in a aerated concrete house will work inefficiently and may be uncomfortable for living.

Design of ventilation ducts

Ventilation ducts in an aerated concrete house are necessary for air intake from “dirty areas” – kitchens, bathrooms. They can be of the following types:

  • brick ventilation blocks

  • sleeving with plastic pipes

The second option is considered more efficient and moisture resistant, since condensation does not form on the plastic.

When using air handling units, there is no need to equip ventilation ducts. Air circulates through air ducts, which are located in the ceiling space. A high-quality exhaust system in a private house is the key to energy efficiency.

Errors when installing ventilation in an aerated concrete house

Ventilation in the house may work not properly and cause discomfort for residents. Violation of the ventilation system may occur due to improper design and installation. Consider common mistakes in the implementation of ventilation:

  1. Incorrectly selected diameter of the air ducts leads to a lot of noise during ventilation.
  2. Reduced cross-section of diffusers and grilles leads to additional noise
  3. Incorrectly calculated required capacity and inappropriate equipment lead to inefficient ventilation and the lack of clean air.
  4. Incorrect crossing of air ducts and lack of integration into the design lead to an additional lowering of the ceilings, an ugly arrangement of diffusers in relation to lighting.

RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT

With natural or decentralized ventilation, exhaust fans must be installed in “dirty areas”.

Evgeniy
House owner

 I looked at several companies on the Internet and settled on the Alter Air company. After talking with their specialists, I realized that people are very well versed in their business. They sensibly explained how to implement home heating and ventilation correctly and with minimal cost. During my stay in a new house, I have already experienced the operation of these systems, and especially the ease of control. The temperature in the house is comfortable and kept at a given level. The ventilation works inaudibly, but noticeably - with the windows closed in the morning it breathes freely and easily, there is no dust. I am very pleased with the work of Alter Air and I will recommend you as a good performer who does quality work!
