A particularly common problem we encounter, in both new and old houses is the increased humidity indoors. It occurs especially in the winter months, where the low outside temperature keeps the frames and other cold parts of the building shell cold & icy, while inside the house is warm.Then the phenomenon of condensation is observed, usually on glazing and aluminium frames.
A quick and easy way to deal with high humidity inside the building is the installation of ventilation systems with heat recovery, which is much more economical (functional) compared to the other common solution, which is the use of dehumidifiers (ASSOLO consumption 5W vs Dehumidifiers 350W)
Condensate in windows and frames due to humidity indoors
The problem: Humidity inside the house & condensation in the windows glasses
Indoor humidity increases for several reasons, both in new and old houses. In new houses with strong thermal insulation, the house is not breathing, and therefore the humidity that is created, accumulates within it. Many daily tasks, such as cooking or mopping, contribute further to the increase in humidity, while the concentration of many people makes the problem more pronounced.
All this humidity, when the outside temperature is low, creates water vapour on windows and frames. This phenomenon of "sweating" of windows and aluminum profiles, creates problems both in the structural elements of the building, but it also affects the health of its inhabitants.
In older houses, problems due to moisture may be caused by a manufacturing error, in walls without thermal-waterproofing, in case of leaks or rainwater that does not drain properly. In these cases, the symptoms are usually more pronounced (eg mold) and are not limited to the formation of concentrates.
Moisture accumulates in the coldest part of the building's shell - mold often appears in these places.
How to effectively deal with the problem: Ventilation with heat recovery ASSOLO
The ventilation of the house in the classic way, by opening the windows - for a short time during the midday hours (where the humidity in the atmosphere is at its lowest level of) - is a way to reduce humidity inside the house, but it is not optimal, since the energy losses, when we open the windows, are high.
The ASSOLO Ventilation Systems with Heat Recovery, solve this problem, since they constantly renew the air inside the house, with almost eliminating heat loss.
The Mechanical Ventilation System with Heat Recovery ASSOLO
ASSOLO is an innovative & autonomous ventilation system of the space, which creates the ideal air quality conditions, since it removes the polluted and humid indoor air and brings in fresh ambient air, which at the same time warms up, reducing humidity and ventilation losses by 93%.
This ensures and guarantees the purity and the correct quality of the indoor air and achieves Thermal Comfort and Healthy Atmosphere with the rejection of humidity, but also the pollutants and microbes from the area, without releasing Heat (energy) into the environment, which happens when we open the windows for the same purpose.
Immediate and effective removal of mold, odor & moisture with the installation of ASSOLO
The engineers of ANDRIANOS, with many years of experience in ventilation systems, have chosen the ASSOLO Ventilation System with Heat Recovery for a wide range of applications. In the majority of ANDRIANOS projects ASSOLO ventilation units are installed in all rooms, ensuring a continuous supply of fresh air indoors and simultaneously reducing heating and cooling losses by up to 93%.
