Mechanical Ventilation With Heat Recovery
With new energy efficient homes being built more air tight than ever before, its been estimated that most people spend 90% indoors. Now is the most important time to look for effective ventilation.
The AXCO range of mechanical ventilation systems with heat recovery (MVHR) 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.
At RB Central Vacuum & Ventilation Systems, we can offer a wide range of Heat Recovery products and services. Below we've listed some information about the products we use on our projects. If you would like to know more about MVHR products and services, get in touch.
Fresh air is continuously drawn into the home via a low energy heat recovery ventilation unit, located in the roofspace/utility area of the home. The ventilation unit filters the incoming air and removes any pollutants and insects. once it has been passed through the heat exchanger within the ventilation unit , the warm, clean fresh filtered air is distributed around the home, using a series of routed ducts to each habitable room (i.e. living room, bedroom etc...)
Air from the wet rooms (i.e. bathrooms, kitchens, wc’s and utility areas) are continuously extracted and filtered back through to the ventilation unit, where the heat from this air is transferred into the fresh incoming air.
A standard extract fan will vent warm air to the atmosphere. The property will then have a higher energy efficiency rating and comply with current building regulations. This is calculated by using the SAP appendix Q.
BEAM have over 35 years’ experience in the self-build market, we understand the advancements in construction and the emphasis on ‘green building’ methods. Our experienced technical team have an extensive knowledge of all current building regulations and work closely with architects and contractors.
We have a wide range of MVHR systems available to suit every life style, house type & budget. including Counterflow and Rotar technology, and PassivHaus approved.
The Benefits of MVHR:
- Constant cleaned warmed, fresh filtered air, reduces symptoms of asthma and allergy sufferers
- Improves indoor air quality throughout the home
- Contributes to the energy efficiency within the home
- Enhances heat distribution
- Reduces / eliminates surface condensation
- Eliminates mould and mildew
- Stops streaming windows
- Removes musty odours
- Quiet in operation
- Aids Radon Dispersion
Any ventilation system must be installed and commissioned by a BPEC qualified installer
