What is a mechanical ventilation system?

The most popular mechanical ventilation system is a C-MEV which is a bit like having a fan in the kitchen, bathroom etc. but they are all linked to one unit in the attic.

There are four difference types of system but the C-MEV has many advantages the main advantage being that the damp, polluted air is extracted and as its continuous it’s not necessary to remember to ‘turn on’ fans when needed. Also, the system is literally whisper quiet and can be controlled remotely.

A C-MEV is suited to dwellings with 6 wet rooms or less and is installed in a roof space or cupboard. Homeowners can make significant energy savings as there is no need for noisy individual extractor fans that have multiple wires, switches, holes through walls, etc in each area needing ventilation.

Another option is a D-MEV which is a decentralised system which is designed to replace conventional bathroom fans and draw moisture laden air out of the wet rooms (bathrooms and utility) providing a quieter and more efficient system compared to separate fans.

Another option is a positive ventilation unit. This is a loft or wall mounted unit that pushes fresh, filtered air throughout the property to combat condensation. The unit is normally fitted in the hallway and continually introduces a subtle, filtered air supply from the trapped heat and air from your roof void, the heat trapped at ceiling level is then re-distributed.

The main benefit of this system is that your indoor air quality is greatly improved. The unit itself isunobtrusive and whisper quiet with no maintenance is required.
