What is Single Room MVHR?

Single Room MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery) is a through the wall unit that is designed for single room applications.

Single room heat recovery works in the same way that a whole house heat recovery system would by extracting damp and stale air to prevent condensation and mould. It also supplies fresh, filtered air, and can recover normally lost heat.

Single room units are easier to install and in some cases are suitable to replace existing extractor fans.

Single Room Heat Recovery Applications

Single room heat recovery is best suited to projects where a full system is possibly not an option due to space or not being suitable for the requirements of renovation, but still provide good indoor air quality in specific chosen room.

Single room heat recovery units are the perfect solution for better indoor air quality in flats and apartments.

Benefits of Single Room Heat Recovery

The main benefit of installing a heat recovery system is that it will improve your indoor air quality. Improved indoor air quality allows your home or workplace to have a healthier living and working environment with better thermal comfort even allowing in higher concentration levels.

Single room heat recovery units provide:

  • Up to 80% thermal efficiency
  • Ideal for one bedroom and bathroom
  • Quiet operation
  • Improved air quality and comfort

How Does Heat Recovery Work?

Heat recovery units are units designed to improve indoor air quality on a room-by-room basis. Single Room units tend to be more efficient than traditional extract ventilation systems such as extractor fans.

Heat recovery units work by continuously extracting moist air from rooms in the home, which is especially important in bathrooms, utility rooms and kitchens. Unlike in traditional extraction systems, when fresh air is supplied from outside, it collects heat from the extracted air before entering the room. This heat energy transfer can help save money on energy costs, because it keeps temperatures more constant than when opening windows for ventilation. The heat from the extracted air is recycled and transferred back into the room to keep a comfortable indoor air temperature.
