Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I go with Dry Living over other home ventilation systems?
Thought you’d never ask! Here are the top reasons why:
Dry Living is an all-inclusive system that works in unison to deliver the healthiest home living environment.
The system sources fresh outdoor air and purifies it. Nobody likes roof space air!
A heat exchanger inside the Dry Living unit ensures pleasant temperature air is coming out of your vents. This also increases efficiency for heat transfer system.
Dry Living uses a heat transfer system as well as fresh air circulation. This allows the system to take heat from your heat pump or fireplace (or another heat source) and distributes it throughout your home. Unlike some other brands, every Dry Living unit includes this as a must-have for smart ventilation. This includes insulated air vents.
A built in dehumidifier removes moisture in your home and puts it outside, where it belongs. Unlike other units, this kiwi design is the master moisture remover. We don’t leave it to chance or fresh air circulation alone. For smart power consumption, the dehumidifier can be set to run at certain times.
Dry Living does not just claim to be passionate about your home. This system is made from premium grade components. We have not spared expense or quality in our units.
Dry Living uses Seismic restraints to hold your unit in place. Sadly, NZ can get shaky. When an earthquake strikes you need to know your unit is held safely in place.
