MVHR Vs Air Conditioning
There are many differences between air conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems.
- Air conditioning units can cool and heat but only recirculate air
- Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems provide fresh filtered air heated by the extracted air
Air Conditioning System
Air conditioning is great at cooling and heating air but has several issues that everyone should be aware off
Because Air conditioning systems recirculate the air, they have a higher risk of infection spreading faster and easier, this is because Air conditioning can make air contain droplets that might help infectious particles spread
Air conditioning may make a room feel like it is fresher, but it is not actually fresh as it is only recirculating and chilling existing air without filtering or cleaning air.
MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) systems provide fresh filtered air and recover normally wasted heat but do not normally cool or heat the air
As you are continually replacing the air the air is fresh and will help lower the Co2 levels and improve the air quality

Quiet-Vent Comfort Cooler
A Quiet-Vent Comfort Cooler cannot be compared to air conditioning since air conditioning recirculates the stale air, whilst the Quiet-Vent Comfort Cooler delivers fresh, filtered, and chilled air from the outside via the home ventilation system.
The Q/V comfort cooler is designed to lower the incoming temperature on warm days to maintain your indoor temperature but if your house is to warm from solar gain or thermal mass we would recommend an a/c system
The Quiet-Vent Comfort Cooler does not require a specialist to install or maintain. Whereas air conditioning systems require both a large internal and external unit with interconnecting pipes, carrying refrigerant that require specialist contractors to install and maintain.
