Heat recovery ventilation
MVHR systems supply fresh, and heated, air to your home as well as simultaneously extracting polluted air from utility rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, making them the most complete solution for commercial and residential ventilation.
What is a heat recovery system?A ventilation system with heat recovery, is a way of ventilation where little heat is lost. The MVHR unit regulates both the supply and extraction of air in your home and is therefore also called balanced ventilation. The heat from the polluted, extracted air is transferred by the heat exchanger to the fresh, supplied air, ensuring that it is at the right temperature when entering the house.
An MVHR unit will cost you roughly between £700 and £2400 at Ventilationland, depending on the brand and model. The large price differences can be explained by the fact that there are many different models, each with their own (unique) properties. Think of airflow capacity, heat recovery efficiency, options to be wirelessly operated and the use of CO2 and humidity sensors to make the system work autonomously.
Centralized or decentralised?
The installation of a heat recovery system in an existing home is often difficult and sometimes even impossible, because air ducts must be installed through the house. If you don't want to or cannot install air ducts, but still want to make use of the benefits of MVHR, a single room MVHR unit may be the solution. This ventilation system is installed without ducts. You can therefore use a decentralised heat recovery system for just one room, but it is often sufficient to place it in the living room, since that is usually where most of the heating takes place.
The benefits of a single room heat recovery unit:
• With decentralised ventilation there is no need for a network of ventilation ducts in the walls, floors or ceilings. The installation is simple and can be done in a short time.
• Mostly compact in size; A centralized system can be very large.
• Because of the absence of ventilation ducts there is no high air pressure and therefore little to no noise.
Which ventilation system should I purchase?
When making a choice regarding the purchase of a ventilation system, it is not only important that the unit matches your own wishes and needs, but also the existing facilities.
