What is Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery and what are the benefits?
Fresh air is continuously drawn into the home via a low energy heat recovery ventilation unit, located in the roof space/utility area of the home. The ventilation unit filters the incoming air to remove pollutants and insects. Once passed through the heat exchanger within the ventilation power unit, the warm, clean, fresh filtered air is distributed around the home through a series of ducts which are run to each habitable room i.e. living room, bedroom etc.
The air from wet rooms i.e bathrooms, kitchens, wc’s, utility areas etc is continuously extracted and filtered back through the ventilation unit. The heat from the extracted air is transferred to the fresh incoming air. The heat recovered can off-set the heating costs and will reduce fuel bills. The system provides low energy balanced continuous ventilation without the need for extract fans or window vents, ensuring a draught-free living environment.
Our AXCO range of MVHR systems are designed to recover up to 95% of the heat normally lost through open windows, trickle vents and other break-out points i.e extractor fans in a building structure.
