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.

    Friendly service and honest advice. Fixed the a/c unit with a simpler fix (which may or may not last) rather than going straight to the expensive fix

    Fantastic service! Stephen was very helpful and professional right from the start. My house had a very small roof space which made the job very challanging, but he took it onboard and made things work. The boys were very friendly and professional. Would highly recommend MaXim Air to my family and friends. Thank you

    Stephen and the team at Maxim Air did a great job. They were very professional from the beginning.

    Stephen sent a technician for the inspection within a very short time period.

    After a thorough inspection, all the options were explained to us in detail and clearly answered all our queries, and guided us through the process.

    The technician on site was very polite and friendly.

    A high quality job was delivered on time for a very reasonable price. We are very happy with the results and would highly recommend Maxim Air.

    Our air condition is 20 years old and never worked to full potential it was always very weak and not much heating or cooling. Rang Stephen he came had a look and advised to change all the ducts and put new zones. Very happy we went with his advise we ended up with perfect heating and cooling so he really saved us from buying a new unit. The guys who came to do the job were all very efficient and polite, I would not refrain from recommending them to anyone they were all very good and very reasonable price

    The boys at Maxim Air Conditioning were very professional and respectful. My new ducted airconditioning has been great. The best thing I found about the whole installation was how quiet and kind the staff were to my family and home environment. Cleaned up everything at the end and took away all packaging. Would recommend this company to anyone!
