Ventilation Checklists

An effective mechanical ventilation system must be able to exchange indoor air with outdoor air, distribute ventilation air to most rooms of the house and exhaust air from kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms, as well as circulate the ventilation air within the rooms.

How Do I Know If My Ventilation System is Functioning Properly?

TECA (Thermal Environmental Comfort Association) is BC’s residential HVAC association that provides training and standards, which are enforced by local municipalities across Metro Vancouver. As a TECA certified business, Fire and Ice has the necessary knowledge and documentation to meet the requirements of regulatory officials to conduct a thorough ventilation assessment of your heating, cooling and ventilation system. Our company holds a HVCI Ventilation Guidelines Certification, a numbered stamp for validating TECA Mechanical Ventilation Checklists, which are required by many BC municipal and district inspection departments.
What Can We Do

How Fire and Ice Can Help

Whenever a building permit is in place for a residential renovation or new construction, we make certain the design actually performs as intended by measuring the performance of the system, and where required, advise on what is needed for a predictable and secure manner of ventilation.
We will provide the initial consultation to inform you of the ventilation code requirements and best installation practices, including design and layout for your system. We will follow-up with a site review, after rough-in installation is complete, to ensure code compliance.

The Purpose Of The Checklist

1. To ensure the ventilation system is designed and installed as per current BC Building Code requirements.

2. To ensure that any fan installed in the house cannot depressurize the indoor environment, which could cause a life-threatening situation.

As mechanical ventilation design experts, we will work closely with you to verify your new or upgraded system is operating efficiently, safely, and comfortably to protect you and your home.

By validating your TECA Mechanical Ventilation Checklist, we will give you peace of mind knowing that a well-operating system maximizes the potential for outperforms and outlasts the typical system, which can deliver you measurable benefits for years to come.
