heat recovery ventilation benefits

Fresh air, energy savings and no cold draughts? With our heat recovery ventilation (and heat pump ventilation) appliances you can have these as well as a host of other benefits as standard, that no other ventilation methods will provide you with in totality...


In Britain, 30 million people suffer from allergies and 10 million from Asthma. Special pollen filters eliminate pollen and allergens before they enter your home. Our optional electrostatic filter can remove particles down to 0.01 microns, removing car fumes and even many viruses.

fresh air

Stale air in your home is constantly replaced with fresh filtered air meaning that the cocktail of chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) emitted from chipboard, furniture, cleaning agents etc will be removed as well as any Radon Gas which may be present along with Carbon Dioxide. This will create a much healthier living environment in which to breathe.


Dustmites love to breed in moist environments, often causing allergic reactions to the unlucky occupants of the home. An HPV or HRV appliance helps to maintain healthy humidity levels in your home making it less inviting for dustmites. This is a comforting thought when you consider that we spend 70% of our time at home.

mould & mildew

Moisture generated from bathing or cooking builds up within your home, especially visible on windows and mirrors. This can be avoided as air is extracted from these wet rooms, eliminating mould and prolonging the life of the fabric of your home.


As fresh filtered air constantly replaces the stale air inside the home, unpleasant odours won't linger around the house from cooking, cleaning, cigarettes, pets or the bathroom.

cost savings & sustainability

A HRV/HPV appliance will contribute to reducing your energy requirements by about one third and cost savings will therefore be enjoyed. This is because up to 95% of the heat can be recovered that would otherwise be lost through alternative means of ventilation (opening windows, having trickle-vents in window frames or extractor fans in bathrooms). Waste heat can also be re-used for heating of the air and water.

peace & quiet

Enjoy peace and quiet, by keeping your windows shut from outside noises. Also, unlike localised extractor fans, the heat recovery ventilation appliance runs continuously and quietly.


Traditionally we open windows for ventilation. However, in town houses and ground floors, this may not be the safest option for you or your possessions, especially at night.

exceeding expectations

Our heat recovery ventilation appliances are all SAP Appendix Q certified meaning that they exceed Part F (ventilation) of the Building Regulations requirements and also, quite importantly, they support Part L (energy) too. Of course they are also Passivhaus Certified which is your guarantee of efficiency and quality. With up to 95% heat recovery and a 500% enhanced efficiency output available, you can feel sure you're doing your bit for the environment, whichever of our heat recovery ventilation appliances you choose.
