A Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) system is an energy recovery ventilation system that uses an air-to-air heat recovery unit to recover wasted heat. We design ventilation systems for domestic and commercial clients that deliver a constant fresh air supply to a building whilst simultaneously extracting stale air using the most energy efficient heat recovery technology for producing savings to heating bills.Types of Systems Benefits Case Studies
Heat Recovery Ventilation systems provide filtered fresh air whilst recovering heat energy from the extracted air from the building.
Heat recovery units can recover up to 95% of normally lost heat depending on the unit and the application.
Stale air is recovered via a heat exchanger inside the heat recovery unit. The heat from this air is filtered and reused to heat the fresh air supply from outside the building.
The system can either work independently or in conjunction with a conventional heating system to provide energy savings and reduced heating expenditure..
Unlike conventional systems the Heat Recovery Unit runs continuously and can be boosted when higher rates of ventilation are required, such as when there is increased moisture in the air.
During warmer months the by-pass function allows ventilation to continue with the heat recovery by-passed to save energy and increase comfort levels.
Particularly in domestic projects, MVHR systems can be enhanced with cooling units that monitor intake and internal air temperatures to cool air to a user-defined room temperature.
There are a multitude of benefits to MVHR in both commercial and domestic properties, not least the creation of better ventilated buildings that creates a healthier work or business environment.
