heat recovery ventilation benefits
Fresh air, energy savings and no cold draughts? With our heat recovery ventilation (and heat pump ventilation) appliances you can have these as well as a host of other benefits as standard, that no other ventilation methods will provide you with in totality...
allergiesIn Britain, 30 million people suffer from allergies and 10 million from
Asthma. Special pollen filters eliminate pollen and allergens before they enter
your home. Our optional electrostatic filter can remove particles down
to 0.01 microns, removing car fumes and even many viruses.
Stale air in your home is constantly replaced with fresh filtered air
that the cocktail of chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's)
emitted from chipboard, furniture,
cleaning agents etc will be removed as well as any Radon Gas which may
be present along with Carbon Dioxide. This will create a much healthier
environment in which to breathe.
humidityDustmites love to breed in moist environments, often causing allergic
reactions to the unlucky occupants of the home. An HPV or HRV appliance
helps to maintain healthy humidity levels in your home making it less
inviting for dustmites. This is a comforting thought when you consider
that we spend 70% of our time at home.
|mould & mildew
Moisture generated from bathing or cooking builds up within your home,
especially visible on windows and mirrors. This can be avoided as air is
extracted from these wet rooms, eliminating mould and prolonging the
life of the fabric of your home.
As fresh filtered air constantly replaces the stale air inside the
home, unpleasant odours won't linger around the house from cooking,
cleaning, cigarettes, pets or the bathroom.
|cost savings & sustainability
A HRV/HPV appliance will contribute to reducing your energy
requirements by about one third and cost savings will therefore be enjoyed. This is because
up to 95% of the heat can be recovered that would otherwise be lost
through alternative means of ventilation (opening windows, having
trickle-vents in window frames or extractor fans in bathrooms). Waste
heat can also be re-used for heating of the air and water.
|peace & quiet
Enjoy peace and quiet, by keeping your windows shut from outside
noises. Also, unlike localised extractor fans, the heat
recovery ventilation appliance runs continuously and quietly.
Traditionally we open windows for ventilation. However, in town houses
and ground floors, this may not be the safest option for you or your
possessions, especially at night.
Our heat recovery ventilation appliances are all SAP Appendix Q certified meaning that they exceed Part F (ventilation) of the Building Regulations
requirements and also, quite importantly, they support Part L (energy) too. Of course they are also Passivhaus Certified which is your guarantee of efficiency and quality. With
up to 95% heat recovery and a 500% enhanced efficiency output available,
you can feel sure you're doing your bit for the environment, whichever of our heat recovery ventilation appliances you choose.
