Home Heat Recovery Ventilation Information You Need to Know

 

Building code is currently undergoing a lot of changes. Installing a heat recovery unit is quickly becoming a necessity rather than a lifestyle choice. 

In recent years this market has also become much more targeted towards DIY installs with all products being easy to fit and connect whilst maintaining an efficient and quiet operating ventilation system.

Why do we need a ventilation system?

 

Over the last decade there has been increasing demand on builders, architects and government legislation to increase the thermal efficiency of our homes making them draught free and well insulated. This in turn has caused poorer air quality which can significantly increase the effects of asthma and other respiratory problems, condensation, mould, dust mites, unpleasant smells and build up of toxic gases.

 

For health reasons Government legislation now makes it almost compulsory for your new air tight home to have a balanced mechanical ventilation system (HRV Heat recovery ventilator).

 

What is whole house heat recovery ventilation?

 

A ventilation system with heat recovery (HRV) or (MVHR) is an energy efficient controlled and balanced ventilation system. It extracts the moist, stale air from all the wet rooms in your house and replaces it with clean, filtered, fresh, recovered warm air to all your habitable rooms and bedrooms without letting the heat escape.

 

Your home is fully ventilated throughout the year with as much as 95% of the normally wasted heat being recovered providing you substantial energy savings. This  ventilation system with heat recovery allows your property to stay air tight with no window vents or bathroom extractors being required, creating a healthier and quieter environment.
