Decentralised ventilation: Better quality of life despite city noise and allergens

Noise pollution and air quality in cities

In urban centres today, residents are often exposed to considerable noise pollution. Cars, trains and aeroplanes generate noise levels of around 60 dB(A) on roads, railways and in the air in neighbouring residential areas. This background noise can lead to depression and health problems. In addition, exposure to toxic pollutants reduces the quality of life when city dwellers are already reluctant to open their windows. It is therefore not surprising that city dwellers are reluctant to open their windows due to noise and exposure to toxic pollutants. This also applies to allergy sufferers who want to keep pollen and other allergens out of their homes. However, it is impossible to do without ventilation, as otherwise the indoor air quality suffers and problems such as damp and mould arise. Decentralised ventilation systems such as those offered by Ventomaxx provide a solution to these challenges.  

Challenges posed by noise and air pollution in areas close to traffic

  According to the Federal Environment Agency, people living near busy roads are exposed to considerable levels of particulate matter and noise of up to 65 dB(A) during the day and 55 dB(A) at night. This corresponds to the volume of a car passing continuously at a distance of ten metres. Such conditions lead to psychological stress and serious health problems such as strokes and heart attacks. However, if residents do not ventilate their rooms, moisture, mould and increased carbon dioxide levels are the result. Allergy sufferers face additional challenges: According to the Association of German Allergists (ÄDA), around a third of Germans suffer from hay fever. Symptoms such as watery eyes, runny noses and frequent sneezing occur particularly in spring, when the pollen count is at its highest. It becomes particularly unpleasant when spores and pollen are also present indoors.  

Effective noise reduction through intelligent ventilation systems

With modern ventilation systems such as those offered by Ventomaxx, noise from traffic and construction sites stays outside the living space. The devices are designed to reduce noise levels by up to 59 dB (Dnew), as confirmed by a test report from ift Rosenheim. A reduction of just 3 dB is already perceived as a halving of the perceived noise, which significantly increases well-being and reduces health risks such as heart attacks. In addition, the devices work at a very low operating volume of only around 16.5 dB(A), which makes them extremely quiet and unobtrusive.

The decentralised ventilation systems help to bring filtered fresh air into the rooms. One part of the system automatically extracts stale air, while another part supplies fresh air. This process takes place every 75 seconds, ensuring continuous air circulation. The built-in hygiene filter effectively traps coarse and fine dust as well as pollen. A special fine dust and pollen filter is available for allergy sufferers with hay fever. Even with high levels of pollen from trees and grass, allergic reactions are no longer to be feared. What's more, this special filter can be replaced within seconds to ensure consistently high air quality.  

Breathe a sigh of relief: Improved quality of living thanks to decentralised ventilation systems

Decentralised ventilation systems make a significant contribution to improving the quality of life. The integrated sound insulation ensures a healthy and pleasant soundscape. In rooms that are free of pollen, allergy sufferers and asthmatics can finally breathe freely again and benefit from improved air quality. With Ventomaxx, you are not only relying on high-quality ventilation systems, but also on decades of experience and expertise in the field of ventilation technology. Our products not only offer you a pleasant and healthy living atmosphere, but also the certainty that your home is optimally ventilated and protected from pollutants.
