Benefits of MVHR
Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery(MVHR) is a simple technology that has many health and social benefits. It supplies you with constant fresh filtered air for a healthier indoor environment, reducing allergens and pollutants in the atmosphere. MVHR reduces your energy consumption and carbon footprint and saves you money on your energy bills.
- Energy efficient
- Alleviates allergies and asthma
- Controls condensation and mould
- Combats unpleasant odours
- Reduces outside noise pollution
- Reduces harmful pollutants within the home.
ENERGY EFFICIENT – Save money and the planet!
MVHR recovers up to 95% of the waste heat energy within your property. This reduces the Dwelling Emission Rate which is used for the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) energy assessment. Helping lower your carbon footprint and save you money. All units we install are either SAP accredited, or Passive House approved.
ALLEVIATE ALLERGIES & ASTHMA – Ease symptoms of Allergies and Asthma!
A staggering 44% of adults in Britain now have allergies. With MVHR the incoming fresh air is filtered, reducing the symptoms of allergies and asthma. The fresh filtered air will not only help asthma sufferers but also those with lung conditions such as bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It will also alleviate symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever).
CONTROL CONDENSATION & MOULD – Eliminate condensation and mould growth!
An MVHR system will control moisture and condensation putting a stop to condensation forming on windows and also the development and growth of damp and mould. Dramatically improving the indoor air quality.
COMBAT UNPLEASANT ODOURS – Removes lingering bad smells!
The fresh air from the MVHR system will combat everyday odours such as cooking or pets that would ordinarily linger for days!
REDUCE OUTSIDE NOISE POLLUTION – No need to have your windows open!
Ventilating your home with open windows can leave you susceptible to outside noise pollution such as traffic and noisy neighbours.
With MVHR Fresh air will continue to circulate even with all your windows closed! This also has the added benefit of increasing the security of the property.
REDUCE HARMFUL POLLUTANTS WITHIN THE HOME – We spend about 90% of our time indoors!
Pollution at its peak in the UK can be up to 560 times higher indoors than it is outdoors. Indoor air pollution can be caused by many things, how you heat your home, how you cook, poor ventilation, damp, chemicals in cleaning products, aerosol sprays as well as some building materials and furnishings. Everyone is at risk from indoor air pollution. If you’ve got COPD, asthma, or any other lung condition, you’re much more likely to be affected by poor air quality. Children are particularly vulnerable to poor indoor air quality as their lungs are still developing. Pollution can also interact with allergens to cause asthma in children. With MVHR the fresh circulating air helps reduce the levels of indoor air pollution by reducing dust, pollen and diesel particulates, to safe levels by adding filtered fresh air, thus minimising the impurities that come from the inside as well as the outside.
