Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery
Energy-efficient homes of today should have high levels of insulation. That are built as closely as possible to airtight standards and contain a central ventilation system with heat recovery.
The AXCO range of mechanical ventilation systems with heat recovery (MVHR) is 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.
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 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.
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
