Tip of The Month: Want better air quality and lower energy bills?
Did you know that all newbuild domestic properties need to comply with Part F of the Building Regulations? This is all part the Government’s drive to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and Part F outlines the requirements for building ventilation, air quality and the prevention of condensation.
So why am I telling you this?
Because there’s a new kind of ventilation system in town, and it’s something that people are starting to take notice of and ask us about. It has some amazing benefits, including better air quality and reduced energy bills.
Your property doesn’t have to be a newbuild to benefit from it. You can consider installing this system, regardless of the age of your home.
What’s it called?
It’s called MVHR (mechanical ventilation with heat recovery) and it’s the only ventilation system that can almost completely eliminate ventilation heat losses.
But what exactly is MVHR?
It is a controlled ventilation system that provides fresh filtered air into a building, whilst cleverly exploiting the energy already used to create heat in the first place.
How does it work?
It works by continuously extracting air – mainly from your kitchens and bathrooms (known as wet rooms) – whilst simultaneously pulling in fresh air from outdoors. This is then filtered, and pumped back into the rest of the home through a series of ducts.
What are the benefits of MVHR?
• Significantly improves air quality and reduces humidity
• Prevents condensation
• Helps to relieve symptoms of asthma and allergies
• Prevents mould and condensation from forming
• Helps to prevent respiratory illnesses
• Reduces carbon footprint
• Reduces noise pollution
• Reduces/stops damp from forming
• Reduces energy bills
