CO2 Levels Measured in BedroomThe Lunos Decentralised MHRV and DCV have this feature and allow the user more control over their indoor living environment and the ventilation rates. It is even flexible enough so that only the bedrooms are boosted and not the entire house – which is all that is needed at night. As we strive for more air-tight buildings – it more important than ever that we monitor and provide proper ventilation and with the present emphasis of insulating existing buildings to meet energy reduction targets – these are the very homes that were built with inadequate ventilation in the first place. How many of us are familiar with houses built 10 years ago with no bathroom exhaust fans and 4”/100mm ‘holes in the wall’ – normally blocked to stop the draft! Providing adequate ventilation is the only option!
