- Mechanical Ventilation & Heat Recovery
Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) Explained
Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) provides ventilation to the living area and bedrooms. The heat is recovered from stale air drawn from bathrooms and utility rooms, and transferred into the fresh air entering the building. These systems allow windows to be permanently sealed whilst the property has continuous fresh air, which is perfect for noisy areas of where security is particularly important.
The MVHR system has minimal maintenance and the Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) provides a continuous extraction of stale, damp air from all wet rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms.
The system costs less to supply and install than individual separate fans required by Building Regulations and will help to reduce the amount of background ventilators required. MEV systems are suitable for a wide range of buildings, from apartments and houses to student accommodation units and nursing homes. MEV systems can be designed to ventilate either an individual apartment or several apartments simultaneously.
