          Installation of a VMC We have just bought a house from 1973, well insulated. We wish to install a hygro-adjustable VMC (currently no VMC no ventilation), however we do not wish to change the windows (very stylish wooden, rounded shape but simple glazing). The only current air intakes are in the lower part in the WC and bathroom.
