BEAM Heat Recovery Ventilation (MVHR) System

 BEAM Heat Recovery Ventilation (MVHR) System

Today’s increased airtightness levels in new dwellings requires a planned ventilation approach. The objective of a good ventilation strategy Is to provide a balance between energy efficiency and indoor air quality.

Company Profile:

Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems (also known as MVHR) are considered to be the most energy efficient method of ventilating an airtight dwelling. Fresh air is continuously drawn into the home via a low energy heat recovery ventilation unit, located In the air to remove pollutants and insects. Once passed through the heat exchanger within the ventilation power unit, the warmed, clean, fresh, filtered air is distributed around the home through a series of ducts which are run to each habitable room i.e. living rooms, bedrooms etc.

Moist, stale, warm air from wetrooms (such as bathrooms, kitchens, wc’s, utility areas) is continuously extracted and filtered back through the ventilation unit. The heat from the extracted air is transferred to the fresh incoming air. The heat recovered can off-set the heating costs and will reduce fuel bills. The system provides low energy balanced continuous ventilation without the need for extract fans or window vents.

Any other information

It is vital that an MVHR system is installed and commissioned correctly in accordance with the strict guidelines set by building regulations today. Filters within the MVHR units should also be changed / cleaned annually to help maintain system efficiency. Use of non-genuine filters can reduce system functionality by up to 40%.
