​When you need a ventilation project

The energy efficiency of housing depends on this, as well as the creation of the right microclimate in your home: the level of heat, cold and CO2.

Ventilation design is a complex work of professionals, which allows you to competently introduce a ventilation system into a design project, taking into account other engineering solutions.

This service will save you from: 

  • ​improper ventilation functioning;​

  • ​the cost of redesigning the climate system;​

  • ​extra costs for system maintenance.​

If you want to provide your future home with properly organized ventilation, then the project is a must.

The safety of the system, as well as the comfort and health of homeowners, depends on this process. When designing ventilation systems, it is necessary to take into account numerous nuances associated with aerodynamic calculation, the correct selection of equipment for the implementation of an energy-efficient system. Given the above, Alter Air advises contacting specialists. Our company also provides ventilation installation services.

STRUCTURE OF PROJECT DOCUMENTATION

When working on a ventilation system project, Alter Air provides the client with the following documents:​

  1. A package of drawings: the development of a ventilation plan in the apartment, a diagram and sections of the ventilation system.

  2. ​Specification.​

  3. ​If necessary, tasks for workers: plumbers, electricians, builders.​

  4. ​Technical and economic justification for the choice of ventilation equipment, taking into account its performance.​

Alter Air services include not only the design and sale of ventilation systems, but also the offer of standard solutions (these are different ventilation options that fit any technical and economic needs of the client).

The most important information from this area is considered to be standard ventilation solutions for houses and apartments, including kitchen and bathroom.​

​DESIGN BY VENTILATION TYPES

There are different options for the implementation of the ventilation system, which are selected according to the parameters of the room. Let us consider the design features of different types of ventilation.

EXHAUST SYSTEM

For the operation of the exhaust ventilation system, it is necessary to install exhaust fans in “dirty” areas (bathroom, toilet, dressing room, kitchen, etc.).

Alter Air has partners only among proven brands that we trust. For example, Olimpia Splendid produces high-quality axial-type exhaust fans, Meltem ー centrifugal. The uniqueness of the Meltem brand is the wide range of exhaust fan control options:

Exhaust system Exhaust fan
Supply ventilation

Supply ventilation

​For supply ventilation, supply units, breathers and wall recuperators are used. The equipment is placed in “clean” areas (bedroom, living room, children's room).

Using this version of the ventilation system, it is necessary to provide “dirty” zones with exhaust fans that will extract the exhaust air.

Decentralized ventilation system

The principle of operation of a decentralized ventilation system is the supply of fresh air into the “clean” zones, and the intake of exhaust air from all the “dirty” ones. This happens locally in the room where the system is installed.

A decentralized ventilation system can be provided by household recuperators. The Alter Air company recommends a German manufacturer of high-quality household heat exchangers Meltem or Italian ー Olimpia Splendid.

Decentralized ventilation system Household recuperator
Decentralized ventilation system with ducting

Decentralized ventilation system with ducting

A decentralized ventilation system with ducting is a unique development of the German manufacturer Meltem. This system is great for small apartments (up to 70 m²).

It works on the principle of a conventional decentralized system (air supply through “clean” zones, and intake through “dirty” ones). However, unlike the previous system, this option is closer to an energy-efficient solution. Since there are no exhaust fans in the bathrooms, and the system works in balance for the entire apartment or house.

Centralized ventilation system with variable airflow

The centralized ventilation system for variable airflow operates on the basis of VAV valves and CO2 sensors, it can provide a full-fledged air exchange in the apartment.

Thanks to these innovative developments, the unit can supply air in zones where a person is located and, accordingly, there is an increase in carbon dioxide.

The best example of a centralized unit is Jablotron Futura. Эта приточно-вытяжная установка с рекуперацией тепла обладает рядом модификаций:

  1. VAV-system. Allows you to supply air by zone, based on data from the CO2 sensor.

  2. “Boost buttons”. Allows you to supply air by zone, based on data from the CO2 sensor.

  3. CoolBreeze module. Used to heat or cool incoming fresh air.​

The centralized ventilation system is considered one of the highly efficient systems, with a 90% coefficient of performance (COP).

In this option, our specialists calculate the required amount of air per person separately for each room according to Building Codes and Regulations.
