68 HEATING, VENTILATION & SERVICES


If the right system is chosen, mechanical ventilation can provide an extremely positive impact on the health of buildings and their inhabitants


impaired cognitive performance. Not only does mechanical ventilation have the benefit of reducing noise pollution through keeping windows closed, there are also units available that can dampen external noise by up to 50 dB while running extremely quietly at only 20 dB(A). Siegenia, for example, has successfully installed hundreds of thousands of mechanical vents in clean air and noise reduction schemes in proximity to airports and train stations across the UK and Europe, due being designed for high sound absorption performance and low inherent noise.


Centralised ventilation systems are not the only way When considering ventilation, thoughts often go straight to centralised systems, which can


be daunting in terms of the expense and time-consuming, disruptive installation of ducting required. However, single-room ventilation units are available on the market and can be just as effective, while only requiring sometimes as little as 45 minutes to install and one core drill hole in the wall per unit. Nor need maintenance be a costly job. Some filters need only be cleaned or replaced once a year and units are available that will indicate this to the user.


Single-unit vents can also be paired with smart technology such as air quality sensors or apps. They can therefore be set to automatically kick into action when the air quality drops below a certain level, or be controlled remotely via a mobile device to suit users’ needs. With air quality being so important to


health, ventilation clearly ought to be an important piece of the wellness puzzle. If the right system is chosen, mechanical ventilation can provide an extremely positive impact on the health of buildings and their inhabitants and could serve to complement your other wellness measures.
