Heat Recovery Ventilation

A whole house ventilation system ensures fresh filtered air, good health and a sense of well-being. This is vital when you consider we spend 70% of our time indoors.

The past decade has seen a huge emphasis on increasing the thermal efficiency of home building and we now have draught free, well-insulated homes. However, with this comes an increasing number of respiratory problems related to poor air quality. The most effective way to combat this is a balanced mechanical ventilation of the building; meaning as much freshly filtered air is fed into the living rooms as stale air is extracted from the kitchen and bathrooms.

A ventilation system for an entire house with heat recovery is not a heating system or an alternative to a heating system. It simply recovers the energy provided by any heating system, which would ordinarily be lost through traditional ventilation systems.

The Benefits:

  • Delivers pure, fresh and filtered air 24/7
  • EU pollen filters to reduce allergies caused by dust and stale air
  • Uses twin, energy efficient and brushless, EC-DC motors
  • Has low energy consumption
  • Operates silently
  • Eliminated condensation
  • Allows closed window, which means improved air and sound quality
  • Ensure draught free ventilation
  • Is the recommended option in the building regulations Part L – 2006
  • Complies with building regulations Part F for domestic dwellings
  • Prevents mould
  • Removes Radon

How does our system work?

The heat recovery ventilation system we supply and install eliminates the need for traditional and energy inefficient wall vents. It works by extracting stale moist air from a home’s wet areas (kitchen, toilet, shower room, utility room etc.) and brining it through a couterflow heat exchanger, which warms as the air passes over it and then discharges the waster air to the atmosphere. At the same time, fresh cool air from outside is brought into the counterflow where it gets warmed and then distributed (via ducting) to the home’s occupied rooms (bedrooms, living room, study, lounge etc.). The result is continuous ventilation with minimum heat loss.

Indoor Air and Sound Quality

Our designers are proud of their attention to detail, in particular the commitment to noise reduction in the home. In addition to considering the noise of the unit itself, Flynn Heat Recovery designers consider the system layout, the type of air valve or grille and both volume, and velocity.

Our air distribution systems provide superior levels of acoustic performance, and have been certified as such. All of our systems have also been fire tested and certified.
