Poor air quality can be attributed to many problems within a building. Excess humidity causes dampness, rot and mould.
Pollutants are well known to be a major cause of health issues such as eczema and asthma.Untreated air is also believed to cause low productivity and low morale. As there is a demand for improved energy efficiency results, modern day buildings are becoming more airtight, natural ventilation proves less effective driving the need for more suitable mechanical ventilation.
HRV recovers heat energy lost through ventilation, maintaining a comfortable and clean indoor environment without changing the room temperature. If interlocked with localised airconditioning, system loads can be reduced and energy savings made.
