In the past few years, the general public's interest in and knowledge of ventilation and air quality have increased. At the same time, major players on the market have started to understand that customised indoor climate solutions lead to great energy savings. Demand-driven ventilation is becoming more and more sought-after while the products have evolved and become more intelligent with new features. In the future, the public is predicted to become more interested in air quality and indoor climate, and knowledge also comes with a set of requirements.

In this blog post you can read my thoughts and ideas on how we will look at ventilation in the future.

They should be as small and thin as possible, and carefully hidden so that no one notices them. Nevertheless, they constantly prevent us from breathing polluted air in our homes and workplaces.

With these components being hidden, we also tend to forget maintaining them. Or occasionally replacing them whenever they’ve been worn out. But just as they have a tremendous positive impact on our health when functioning properly, not replacing ineffective ones has a negative impact – on both the energy bill and the indoor air quality.   

But what are these small, yet essential parts, that goes unnoticed? Well, it’s the air filtration. Hidden in your ventilation system. Day in and day out, these brave little soldiers protect you from breathing polluted air – providing fresh air to indoor areas, and enabling you to stay healthy and sound.
