Mechanical heat
recovery ventilation

In terms of design, the earlier the better! Depending on the building’s layout, retrofitting can prove challenging. As for installation, we advise installing the necessary ductwork for your MVHR system at the same time as joists are erected.

A significant percentage of heat is lost through open windows and trickle vents, and MVHR systems are designed to address this inefficiency. Over time, home recovery ventilation can reduce heating costs by up to 30% while also enhancing indoor air quality.

The MVHR system will continue running even if you open all windows and doors. However, the system will naturally lose a little of its efficiency as a result.

Our MVHR systems are designed to be almost inaudible.
