Heat Recovery and Ventilation
Axco Heat Recovery Ventilation
Energy efficient homes of today should have high levels of insulation, built as close as possible to airtight standards and contain a central ventilation system with heat recovery.
The AXCO range of mechanical ventilation systems with heat recovery (MVHR) are designed to recover up to 86% of the heat normally lost through open windows, trickle vents and other break-out points i.e extractor fans in a building structure.
Fresh air is continuously drawn into the home via a low energy heat recovery ventilation unit, located in the roofspace/utility area of the home. Once passed through the heat exchanger within the hrv ventilation system, the warm, clean, fresh, filtered air is distributed around the home through a series of ducts which are run to each habitable room, i.e. Living room, bedrooms etc.
The air from wet rooms i.e bathrooms, kitchens, wc’s, utility areas etc is continuously extracted and filtered back through the heat recovery ventilation unit. The heat from the extracted air is transferred to the fresh incoming air.
