Keep it fresh with trickle ventilation

Trickle ventilation system

While the drive to improve the thermal efficiency of our buildings and windows in particular has resulted in reduced energy consumption, one unintended consequence of increased airtightness is a reduction in indoor air quality through the retention of internally generated pollutants.

One solution to this problem is putting in place a trickle ventilation, the primary purpose for which is to remove polluted indoor air from a building and replace it with fresher outside air. A background ventilation system such as Glazpart’s Slimline Vents can help provide a healthy indoor environment for occupants.

Glazpart’s range of small trickle ventilators is designed to deliver controllable whole room ventilation and, with no need for air bricks to be installed and no ongoing running costs, this can be done cheaply and easily.
