Heat recovery systems

What is a heat recovery system?

Heat recovery ventilation, also known, as HRV is an energy recovery ventilation system using equipment known as a heat recovery ventilator. The principle behind heat recovery ventilation is to change the air continuously in the house and use the recovered heat to warm the incoming air.

Extract points are located in wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchen, utility and WC. Supply points are in areas such as bedrooms, living and dining rooms. The heat exchanger transfers most of the heat from the extracted “wet” air to the incoming fresh air.

What are the benefits of a heat recovery system?

  • Your home will have a constant supply of fresh air with higher comfort levels.
  • Overall air quality within the house is significantly increased which is of benefit to all occupants especially Asthma & Hay Fever sufferers.
  • No condensation.
  • No fungal growth in bathrooms.
  • Fresh smelling bathrooms (air is constantly being changed no need for air freshener).
  • Less dust (windows are kept closed and all air in to house is filtered) less spiders as they feed on dust mites.
  • Extra security (windows closed no need to part guard alarm).
  • Quieter house less outside noise as windows are kept closed.
  • Lower heating bills.
  • Wake up feeling refreshed instead of groggy (due to lack of oxygen).
