Ventilation and energy savings
Ventilation is essential but it has an energy cost.  It is therefore vital to select the most energy efficient form of ventilation.
Controlled passive stack ventilation is recognised by the NHER energy rating software as the most energy-efficient method of ventilation available.
Passivent is a system of controlled natural ventilation which ventilated the whole house, and automatically responds to demand.  Passiventilation uses no electrical power.
Building regulations

Passive Ventilation systems can be used to satisfy the requirements for ventilation set out in the 1995 Approved Document F1 (England and Wales) for all domestic type facilities.  It also meets the requirements for security, avoiding draughts and preventing rain ingress.
