What is a heat recovery system?
Put simply, such systems are known as Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR). It’s a ventilation system that works to remove stale air from your home and introduce fresh air. However, that’s not all it does – it also uses the heat extracted from your home to warm the new air as it enters in a heat exchange.
As standard, an MVHR system is not part of your heating system, but the actual work it does in warming cold air and introducing it to your home. Which means that you can make significant savings on your energy costs. Blauberg's advanced control system, allows for optional heaters to be incorporated, providing a programmable temperature-controlled solution.
The Benefits of MVHR
A heat recovery system works best in a house that is thermally efficient, which most modern builds tend to be. In such circumstances, and with the latest systems in place, it’s possible to save around 90% of the warm air escaping from your home. Considering the warm air usually leaks out of roofs and windows, it makes a considerable difference in comparison to existing ventilation solutions.
However, that’s not all it does, however. The new air is also filtered by the MVHR unit as it enters, meaning that many allergens, such as pollen, are removed. This is great news for those who suffer from asthma, hay fever and other allergic conditions, while the system also removes carbon dioxide and other pollutants, replacing them with fresh oxygenated air.
