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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
We provide delivery and installation of ventilation systems. Installation of systems is carried out exclusively by our crews. Our specialists are trained and have work certificates with each type of vent equipment. Therefore, we are confident in the quality of the work and provide a guarantee not only for the equipment, but also for the installation. Mandatory intermediate stage are commissioning works. Our specialists set up and test the ventilation system to ensure that it is correct and effective.
After completion, we provide warranty and post-warranty maintenance of ventilation systems. Often, the innovative ventilation equipment we work with often does not even require the presence of a specialist: analysis, setup and service can be carried out online. In case of faults – our service master will offer the best package of services and will come any day convenient for the client. Spare parts for repair or consumables (for example, replaceable ventilation filters) – can also be ordered from us.
Let us consider the most popular brands for organizing ventilation in an aerated concrete house, namely the equipment for supply and exhaust ventilation, as well as manufacturers of fans for extracting exhaust air during natural ventilation.
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.
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.
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:
The Jablotron Futura L ventilation unit with heat and moisture recovery ensures high-quality air exchange at the apartment, and also reduces the load on the heating system in the cold season. Thanks to the Alfa wall controller and the MyJablotron mobile app it is easy to operate the unit.
Flexible air ducts Airflex have a high degree of plasticity, which allows air to be supplied even to hard-to-reach areas. Moreover, they are covered with a layer of thermal insulation, which prevents heat loss and absorbs noise characteristics during the operation of the ventilation unit.
The Daikin duct air conditioner provides efficient room cooling. The FBA series has a rather thin body, which makes it easy to place in a ceiling space. The self-diagnosis function ensures a safe operation of the device and indicates problems if any occur.
Double-slot diffusers from the TROX brand are designed for high-quality air distribution throughout the room. They combine visual aesthetics and high technical potential. Air currents are given in different directions, evenly scattering and avoiding any drafts. Outwardly, only laconic lines on the ceiling remain visible.
A low-pressure internal duct unit Daikin FDXM 35F is installed in the ceiling space of the bathroom - it works to cool the bedroom. It is accessed through hatches. The capacity of the air conditioner is enough to service rooms up to 35 m2, which is optimal for a given room. The lowering of the ceiling in a technical room was 300 mm.
Vertical indirect heating boiler Drazice OKSE 200 l is designed to provide apartment residents with hot water. The inner surface of the tank is covered with high-quality enamel without nickel, which ensures a long operation of the water heater, and there is also an anti-corrosion coating. The temperature inside can be kept between 7 and 77 ℃. The water heating indicator always shows the current temperature on the front of the tank. There is a fast heating function. This is an excellent solution for an apartment, allowing you not to depend on seasonal blackouts and other inconveniences.
Electric boiler Vaillant Ecoblock An electric boiler Vaillant Ecoblock with a capacity of 6 kW and efficiency of up to 99% works for heating and hot water supply of the entire apartment. It has a wide range of temperature settings for both heating and hot water supply. There are frost protection and 2-level overheating protection. Equipped with eBus data transmission technology. With the help of a capillary thermostat, residents can smoothly regulate the heating temperature in the range from 25 to 85 ℃
The Zilmet expansion tank is designed to compensate extra pressure in the heating system. Works in conjunction with the Vaillant electric boiler above. The special inner lining of the tank prevents the growth of any bacteria, that is, the water does not acquire a metallic taste, does not stagnate or change its properties.
A modern system for filtering and softening water: cleans water from all kinds of impurities and odors, neutralizes iron, making it soft, pleasant and safe for household appliances, water pipes and human use. The purified water is also suitable for drinking directly from the tap. The refiner does not require changing the carbon filters, and is controlled via WiFi - maximum automation and comfort!

We chose Alter Air to bring our cool engineering project to build our own home. Now the following systems are installed in the house: heating with a heat pump, underfloor heating, supply and exhaust ventilation with heat recovery, which allows you to keep moisture and easily breathe fresh clean air. The house maintains an excellent temperature of + 22 ° C - no stuffiness and dust. Everything is magical!
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!
Definitely. Ventilation is necessary in a house made of any building material, especially of aerated concrete. Aerated concrete has a high moisture absorption, which can subsequently have a devastating effect on building materials. To take away excess moisture along with the exhaust air and saturate the room with oxygen, it is necessary to use a supply and exhaust ventilation system.
The price of a ventilation system in an aerated concrete house depends on the area of the house, the chosen system, the cost of equipment and other factors. You can get acquainted with the price list and buy ventilation units in Kyiv in the Alter Air online store.
For a house made of aerated concrete, Alter Air considers Jablotron supply and exhaust ventilation equipped with CO2 sensors and a VAV valve system for variable airflow to be the most profitable option. The system monitors the level of CO2 in each room, and directs its action exclusively to those areas where the air quality is below normal. Such a ventilation system provides effective and energy-efficient ventilation.
In a finished house made of aerated concrete, it is possible to make ventilation. To do this, it is necessary to take into account all the technical characteristics of the structure and interior, and choose the best option.
