Dry room climate safe storage
Storerooms or utility rooms should primarily provide a dry climate. With it, for example, laundry dries quickly and stored items are protected from mold or musty smell.
A passive supply air system such as AirOnova is the ideal solution here. Built into a simple wall breakthrough, it provides over filters to protect against dust, allergens and pesky insects. In addition, noise from outside is minimized by a silencer.
Several quality factors count: A currently accumulating large amount of moisture must be transported out of the room into the open air as quickly as possible and at the same time without a large loss of energy. In addition, the room should not cool down much in the cold season to prevent condensation. This requires high-performance exhaust air units that run in an automated manner for short periods of time in full-load operation and then either turn off or run in an energy-efficient base-load mode. Ventilation activation is done by manual on/off or better automatically via pure efficient humidity control.
Effective dehumidification works only when the humidity outside is lower than inside. The controller uses combined temperature and humidity sensors to detect when optimal ventilation conditions exist. Only then it activates the ventilation. Faulty ventilation is prevented. Another important criterion is the wellness or fitness areas increasingly located in basements. Moisture is typically generated in these, often large amounts in a short period of time as in sauna airing. This must be reliably detected and extracted, ideally without making these rooms uncomfortably cool. At the same time, unpleasant smell of sweat is also removed with and the rest of the storage rooms are protected from mold and cellar stink. The smart control system takes care of that.
In this case, a powerful fan box is the ideal solution, which simultaneously extracts air at several points and brings it outside via poppet valves installed in a central exhaust pipe running across the basement. Dry fresh air enters the basement from outside via a second fan box, a central supply air pipe and poppet valves in the reverse direction. A control system ensures that the ventilation is only activated when ventilation conditions are optimal.
Single-pipe ventilation systems with humidity sensor are ideal for these tasks. They provide efficient venting in the event of momentarily high humidity and activate automatically in normal operation above a certain humidity threshold. This saves a lot of energy. If the room is located in the basement, it can also be integrated into a centrally controlled basement ventilation system, which also ensures optimal and efficient moisture removal.
Depending on whether axial fan, centrifugal fan or single-pipe fan, the mounting options are variable. Axial flow fans such as the Limax are typically installed in straight short ducts, such as a bathroom or toilet vent, that pass directly through the exterior wall. Centrifugal fans are also installed directly in the pipe run and are also suitable for longer pipes. However, depending on the structural situation, fire protection elements must be installed separately.
The most flexible is the Limodor single-pipe ventilation system. The fans can be installed as flush-mounted and surface-mounted variants, in and on walls or on the ceiling. They cover all areas of application in the house and also work as central exhaust in the attic, as individual fans, groups or in combination with other ventilation elements.
Sometimes central ventilation is optimal. For example, if it can be planned from scratch for the entire living area in a new building with maximum efficiency. Or as basement ventilation, where a smart control system ensures condensation, mold growth and typical musty basement odors for the entire basement floor under sensor control.
A decentralized living space ventilation system with heat recovery is often ideal for renovations. It is ideal for retrofitting small apartments, offices or bedrooms, for example, where installation costs are manageable. In addition, these systems are very quiet and extremely energy efficient.
Sometimes, however, single units in only some rooms such as toilets, bathrooms, wellness rooms, utility rooms or garages are the best solution. Control modules allow the fans to be optimally adapted to the task at hand and automated. Combined with properly executed window ventilation in the rest of the apartment, this creates an inexpensive, yet energy-saving and comfortable solution.
The advantages and disadvantages, and then the appropriate system selection, are best made together with the architect or builder and the installer who will plan and implement the ventilation design.
Yes, e.g. the LIMODOR B, which manages with only 8cm installation depth.
As a consistent optimization of its predecessors, the installation-friendly LIMODOR F/M-EC combines the proven LIMODOR advantages with innovative control solutions. These potentiate its possible applications, increase comfort and at the same time protect the environment and your wallet with electricity savings of 40-50%.Details
The Limodor W is a single-pipe ventilation system with main suction point above the housing cover for flush mounting. The powerful exhaust air system provides efficient air exchange as kitchen ventilation, in guest, fitness and exhibition rooms or in public toilets.Details
