Heat Recovery & Ventilation

Mechanical Heat Recovery & Ventilation

All buildings require a source of fresh air, particularly as they have become more tightly sealed in their construction in the quest for energy efficiency. Although open windows do provide ventilation, a building’s heat and humidity will then be lost in the winter and gained in the summer. Both these scenarios are undesirable for the indoor climate and for energy efficiency. Mechanical heat recovery and ventilation offers an optimal solution by providing fresh air, better climate control and energy efficiency.
Polypipe and IBD take a unique whole system approach in order to maximise ventilation performance. Integrated systems help customers achieve the higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes and the best possible SAP ratings.

Typically, Silavent mechanical heat recovery and ventilation appliances warm fresh air drawn into the building. Using the heat from stale air extracted from bathrooms and kitchens, mechanical heat recovery and ventilation reduces the need for heating. By very efficiently driving fresh, filtered and air around the building through Domus duct systems, Polypipe mechanical heat recovery and ventilation systems significantly improve the living environment.
