The main appeal of Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems (MVHR) is the supply of warm, fresh, filtered air to all habitable rooms and the extraction of moist stale air from wet rooms such as the kitchens and bathrooms. The benefits of heat recovery stretch beyond just simple energy savings. By reducing humidity and condensation, which can cause health problems and affect the building fabric, it greatly improves the indoor air quality and wellbeing of the occupants.
A Heat Recovery Ventilation system allows your home to breathe by continuously extracting moist stale air from areas like the kitchen, toilets and utility areas. This air passes through a heat exchanger and its heat is used to warm the incoming filtered fresh air. This fresh air is then supplied to the bedrooms and living areas.
