What is mechanical ventilation?

Mechanical ventilation systems support or replace natural ventilation methods in buildings. While natural ventilation relies on pressure differences or wind to circulate air, mechanical systems use fans, ducts and filters for consistent cooling, circulation and improved indoor air quality.

These systems are ideal in any environment where natural ventilation is not available or is insufficient. They help to keep your home cool in the summer to ease the strain on your air conditioning, bring clean air into small or enclosed spaces and get rid of stale air, heat and pollutants.

What are the benefits of mechanical ventilation?

Mechanical systems have many advantages over natural ventilation.

Suitable for all buildings

Unlike natural ventilation, mechanical ventilation can be installed anywhere, even in small and secluded spaces such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Consistent temperatures

Mechanical systems maintain a consistent airflow that can be adjusted as you need it, regardless of conditions outside.

Improved air quality

Mechanical ventilation filters and cleans the air entering your rooms to remove pollutants and allergens, so you'll enjoy fresh, clean air even if you're next to a busy road.

Reduced humidity

Dehumidifier systems remove excess moisture from the air to improve comfort, especially on warm and humid summer days.

Reduced noise

You don't need to open windows or expose yourself to noise pollution and contaminated air with mechanical ventilation. Many of these systems are designed to be whisper quiet while in use.

Enhanced security

Buildings can be fully sealed when mechanical ventilation is used, eliminating the security and privacy risks of natural ventilation.

What are the different types of mechanical ventilation?

Ventilation systems come in many forms, depending on what you need them for and where they're installed.

Ceiling fans

Ceiling fans help to control temperatures in individual rooms. They circulate air to lower internal temperatures, but they don't bring new air into the space.

Roof ventilation

Roof ventilation systems bring cool air from the outside into a building and push out the warm air using fans. These systems can be solar-powered to reduce your energy bills.

Ducted ventilation

Mechanical ventilators can deliver fresh air anywhere it's needed in your building through new or existing ducting.


Humidity can cause discomfort as well as mould and mildew growth, which is a health risk. Dehumidifier systems remove moisture from the air to leave your rooms feeling dry and comfortable.

Outside air supplies

If you need to bring fresh air into a sealed space, outside air supplies use fans and filters to continually blow in clean, high quality air.

Exhaust systems

Mechanical exhaust systems vent heat, smoke, bad odours and other contaminants out of enclosed spaces to keep the local air clean.

Supply and exhaust systems are often combined to provide continuous airflow in spaces such as car parks, garbage rooms, kitchens and bathrooms.

How is mechanical ventilation installed?

Many buildings are designed with mechanical ventilation in mind, but it can also be added to most homes and commercial and industrial buildings.

When you contact Maxim Air for a free quote, our technicians will inspect your building and our consultant engineer will design the best ventilation approach based on your needs.

We can also combine natural and mechanical ventilation and integrate ventilation with your air conditioning or heating systems for improved performance and comfort all-round.

    It was a pleasant experience from go to whoa.

    Arran listened to all our requirements and concerns and came up with a suggested system that fitted our needs.

    His team arrived punctually on the day and installed it within the day,

    No problems or hassles, even cleaned up all the dust, packaging, and took the old system and rubbish with them.

    The new system was commissioned and working better than we had hoped for.

    Many thanks to Arran and his team for a job well done.

    Great experience from the start! Stephen went above and beyond for us, giving excellent and honest advice. He gave us extremely competitive quotes and his team was professional on the day of installation. You will not regret using Maxim Air Conditioning! Will definitely use them again in the future.

    The guys from Maxim were really great. Our installation was a bit complicated and Arran spent a lot of time with us scoping the job to make sure everything was covered. He then presented us with options to make sure we got the best solution possible. On the day, the team of Stephen, Victor, Matt, Sam and Hamid did a really professional job. They were careful, the standard of work was excellent and they did a great job cleaning up afterwards. I would happily recommend Maxim to anyone looking for a quality air conditioning team.

    Great experience from start to finish. Arran was very professional over the phone and very informative about the products available and the whole installation process. He also made a follow up call to check on the installation and service provided. The 2 installation guys were also very friendly and professional and did a great job with the our Mitsubishi reverse split system install and even fixed some ducting on our existing ducted system. Best service we've had so far from any company during our renovations. Thanks guys!

    Just had a ducted system and a single unit installed by Maxim. The "whole journey" was an exceptional experience! - very approachable, competitive and reasonable pricing, accommodating to installation date, friendly staff including the owners, who are down to earth people.

    No need to look elsewhere!
