What is mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR)?
MVHR extracts heat and moisture from wet rooms/kitchens and supplies fresh, filtered air, to habitable rooms to completely manage the ventilation and air quality within a building. Whilst fresh air can be warmed or cooled, it is not a substitute heating system.
Benefits of installing MVHR
A well designed and installed MVHR system recovers 60-90% of the heat in the exhaust air so reducing the amount of heat needed to maintain desired room temperatures.
Increasing the quality of the air we breathe has significant health and wellbeing benefits.
Condensation is minimised as damp and humid air is efficiently removed from the building.
Cooler outdoor air replaces the indoor air that has been heated during the day.
The MVHR system dynamically adjusts ventilation performance to maintain a consistent air quality throughout the building.
