A Breath of Fresh Air for Existing Homes

Do you ever feel like your home isn’t breathing? Stuffy air, lingering odours, or even moisture build-up can create an unhealthy and uncomfortable living environment. While opening windows helps temporarily, it’s not always ideal – especially in winter months.

There is, however, a smart and energy-efficient solution that can transform your existing home’s air quality: Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems.  MVHR technology works silently behind the scenes to continuously remove stale and polluted air, replacing it with fresh air.  This not only improves air quality but also combats moisture build-up, a common culprit behind mould growth.

Beyond these health benefits, MVHR systems boast impressive energy efficiency by recovering heat from outgoing exhaust air to pre-heat incoming fresh air, making them increasingly popular option among homeowners.


  • Improved Air Quality: MVHR continuously removes stale air laden with pollutants, allergens, and even moisture, replacing it with fresh, pre-filtered air. This translates to a healthier living environment for you and your family, especially those suffering from allergies or asthma.
  • Reduced Moisture and Mould Risk: Older homes often struggle with moisture control. MVHR effectively combats condensation by regulating humidity levels, preventing the growth of mould and mildew. This not only protects your home’s structure but also contributes to a healthier living environment.
  • Year-Round Comfort: No more battling drafts or relying solely on heating during colder months. MVHR pre-heats incoming fresh air using heat recovered from outgoing exhaust, reducing the strain on your heating system and creating a more comfortable living environment throughout the year.
  • Energy Efficiency: MVHR systems are designed to be energy-efficient. By recovering heat from exhaust air, they significantly reduce the energy needed to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. This translates to lower utility bills and a smaller carbon footprint for your home.

Retrofitting MVHR in Your Home

You might think MVHR systems are only for new builds, but that’s not the case! While typically easier to integrate during the construction phase, MVHR systems can be effectively retrofitted into existing homes. Our team of experts at Flynn Heat Recovery possesses the knowledge and experience to design a discreet and efficient MVHR system for your specific needs.

The retrofitting process typically involves:

  • A thorough assessment of your home’s layout and ventilation needs.
  • Strategic placement of the MVHR unit, often in a loft space, utility closet, or similar location.
  • Installation of a discreet network of ducts, minimizing disruption to your existing décor.
