A malfunction results in reduced or even no ventilation. If you have a subscription with Intovent, there are no call-out charges in the event of a fault. Troubleshooting is not included and we will charge the hourly rate in effect at the time. Materials will be charged at the applicable rate.
You take out a maintenance subscription for a minimum of 24 months. After that you can cancel it on a monthly basis. Are you moving or do you want to stop the maintenance earlier? Contact us for options. Additional costs may apply.

Why cleaning a mechanical ventilation system?
A mechanical ventilation system ensures that the air in the home is constantly refreshed. Cleaning the ventilation system, air ducts and grilles ensures that polluted air can be removed easily. To ensure the quality of the air, it is advisable to opt for regular maintenance by a professional. With a service subscription, you don't have to worry. Good to know: Mechanical ventilation requires an intensive full service at least every 7 to 8 years.
How can I clean my ventilation system myself?
The ventilation box, grilles and air valves can be kept clean with a damp cloth and vacuum cleaner. Limit cleaning to superficial dirt, as thorough cleaning of a ventilation system requires expert knowledge. Our service technicians have the experience and equipment to clean and reset the system. This is always a bespoke job and needs to be done carefully. Afterwards, there will be a breath of fresh air in the house - literally.
Replacing a Mechanical ventilation
Ventilation maintenance optimises the life of your system. However, the fact is that every ventilation system needs to be replaced at some point. Do you have a mechanical ventilation system that is 15 years old or older? Have you noticed that air quality is deteriorating, energy consumption is increasing and/or the system is making more noise?
