Are Heat Recovery and Ventilation Systems Worth It?

The demand for well insulated houses has significantly grown in the last decade. This in turn has caused poorer air quality which can significantly increase the effects of asthma and other respiratory problems, health problems, condensation, mould, dust mites, unpleasant smells and build up of toxic gases.If you want to reduce your heating costs, have a constant supply of fresh, filtered air in your home, no mould, mildew or condensation then a heat recovery system is definitely for you.
If you are building a new house there is no doubt that a heat recovery system can offer substantial savings on your heating bills. A heat recovery system could recover up to 90% of the normally wasted heat and reduce your heating requirements by up to 25%.Your initial investment could be paid back withing five years. Of course factors like the air tightness of your property must come into the equation but generally speaking an office with a heat exchanger of 70% efficiency would save approximately 38% of a company's gas bill.I should also mention that the cost to run these systems is around 1p per day.
