Why choose a heat recovery system?

It’s hard to ignore that we’re spending more and more time in our homes, they used to be places to eat, sleep, and relax, but they’re increasingly becoming places where we work, and even exercise.

How comfortable we feel when we’re indoors mainly comes down to the temperature, humidity, and air quality. Nobody likes to feel stuffy in their own home, and fresh air keeps us comfy, healthy, and productive.

Heat recovery systems are a way to ventilate your home, controlling the indoor climate whilst reducing heating costs, so that you and your family can enjoy that fresh, outdoor feeling, without even having to crack a window.

Heat recovery systems are a popular way to meet building regulations for new properties, but they can also be retrofitted into older homes (to receive maximum benefits however, the property should be well draught proofed and insulated).

What are the benefits of home ventilation?

Heat recovery systems are an increasingly popular ventilation method being chosen by homeowners across the UK, to achieve a constant circulation of fresh, filtered air. The systems offer many benefits, including:

  • Higher quality air, filtered from dust, allergens and pollutants. Especially beneficial for those with asthma, hay-fever, and those who live near a busy road.
  • Massive reductions in moisture and condensation, meaning a lower risk of damp and mould throughout your home.
  • Lower heating costs due to increased heat retention (recovery).
  • Fewer lingering odours from activities like cooking, and pets.
  • Compliant with the latest PART F building regulations.

How do heat recovery systems work?

Heat recovery systems work by first extracting hot and moist air from rooms such as bathrooms, kitchens, and toilets. Once this stale air is extracted, it is passed through an exchanger, where the heat is transferred across into new, fresh air that is taken from outdoors.

The new, oxygen filled, fresh air is then gently distributed through a network of discreet vents. The old stale air then continues outdoors. The result is a healthy, fresh, environment of filtered, recycled air.

Upkeep & Maintenance

Heat recovery systems are low maintenance in all aspects. Once your preferred settings have been chosen they operate autonomously. In terms of maintenance, they require a filter change once or twice per year, depending on usage.

We still recommend getting home ventilation systems serviced annually, as a means to improve its life-span and keep intact your manufacturers warranty.
