Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR) is complete control over the environment inside you property or an area within a property through careful supply and extraction of air delivered by a centralised fan unit. All fresh air is filtered and run through a heat exchanger so minimum unwanted airborne material is brought in and minimum heat loss from ventilation.
MVHR provides a continuous supply of fresh filtered air into the property and continuous extraction of the warm, damp, smelly or stale air. The heat is recycled through a heat exchanger reducing heating costs.
Quite simply, without a MVHR installed highly energy efficient properties would not work!
Only through MVHR, homes and offices can have dramatically improved air quality without the heat losses normally associated with other types of ventilation.In Depth
