Heat Recovery Ventilation (MVHR)
The main appeal of Heat Recovery Ventilation (MVHR) is the supply of warm, fresh, filtered ait to habitable rooms and the extraction of moist and stale air from bathrooms, utility rooms and kitchens.
The benefits of heat recovery stretch beyond just simple energy savings. By reducing humidity and condensation, which can cause health problems and affect the buildings fabric, it greatly improves the indoor air quality and wellbeing of occupants.
What are the benefits of Heat Recovery Ventilation?
Health: Filtered fresh air is circulated throughout your home day and night. On average most people spend over 80% of their time indoors. 50% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. The HRV System will continuously remove stale moist air from your home creating a more suitable and healthy place to live.
Energy Efficiency: A HRV system will save you money and reduce your energy requirements for heating by re-using the heat that is normally lost through poor construction. A HRV system is also designed to operate continuously at a low rate to minimise the electrical energy consumption.
Condensation Control: All water vapour will be removed as it is produced. As a result there is no moisture condensation which causes rot, damp, condensation or mould growth.
Comfort: Comfort levels are superior in a house fitted with a HRV system. Irrespective of weather conditions draught free balanced ventilation is provided all the time.
