Chilliwack Make-Up Air Systems Service
In building with large flows of population, air must be exchanged depending on the square footage and the number of people entering and exiting the building. Depressurizing a room or a building can be dangerous. In most cases, air is drawn into the environment through windows and doors, or imperfect seals such as cracks in the walls. This air, known as Make-up air is the air that is drawn into the room to make up for the air removed by the ventilation system. However, since buildings are now being built in order to retain heat for energy efficiency, sealing the interior from letting in outside air, it is harder for any make-up air to make its way into a room that is being ventilated. As a result, ventilated air does not leave the room. This can be a big problem in many circumstances, not just in commercial or industrial settings.
A Make-up air system is designed to bring outside air into a space that is being ventilated to account for the negative pressure caused by ventilating. Due to their importance, they are also now required by the Canadian building code. So, making sure you are replacing the air removed through ventilation is a legal obligation. At Boilers, Burners, and Beyond we are trained experts in maintaining any Make-up air system to ensure that it is working properly.
If you are looking to install a new system, and are concerned about the cost of heating due to new air intake, consider this: typically, Make-up air systems are temperature controlled, using gas or electricity to heat the air before venting it into a building from outside. Ventilation installations for Make-up air units can be roof mounted or wall mounted, depending on your building’s needs.
If you are in need of installation or maintenance of a Make-up air system, Boilers, Burners, and Beyond is highly trained and experienced in the installation and maintenance of any kind of Make-up air system for residential, commercial, or industrial setting. We are dedicated to ensuring that your ventilation is to code and functioning in an energy efficient way.
