Improve air quality in your home with passive ventilation

Passive ventilation uses doors, windows, vents, louvres and other openings to bring fresh air into your home and let stale air out. This will make your home healthier by improving air quality and reducing mould, mildew and condensation. During the cooler months, it will make your home easier and more efficient to heat.

Ventilation is important for providing a healthy indoor environment and works best if air has clear, uninterrupted pathways through your home. You can maximise air flow by designing open plan areas or having high vents or other openings between rooms. Where cooling is required, windows or other openings up high or on upper levels can be opened to let warm air escape. In winter, well-designed passive ventilation refreshes the air in your home without creating draughts or letting out too much heat.

If your home is designed for passive ventilation, all you’ll need to do is open and close windows, doors or other vents as needed to reduce the temperature and improve the quality of the air you’re breathing. Effective ventilation is necessary for temperature control and air quality. 

Revive have a range of passive ventilation options available – to the straightforward Sashvent and Aerovent system, to the sophisticated Ventient system.
