Heat Recovery Ventilation (MVHR)

MVHR systems are considered the most energy efficient method of ventilating an airtight dwelling and are designed to recover up to 95% of heat from the extracted air.

Energy Efficient

Up to 95% of heat is recovered from the extracted air to warm the incoming air, which reduces fuel costs.

What is a Heat Recovery Ventilation System?

A BEAM Heat Recovery Ventilation System consists of three main elements:

  • A low energy ventilation unit located in the roofspace/utility/plant room
  • A network of high quality insulated rigid ductwork
  • Discreet supply & extraction ceiling valves in each habitable room

How does MVHR work?

Our best in class Heat Recovery Ventilation system extracts moist stale air from buildings and continuously draws fresh air in. This incoming air passes through filters within the ventilation unit to remove pollutants and insects. Once passed through the heat exchanger within the ventilation power unit, warm, clean, fresh filtered air is then distributed around the property through a series of ducts which run to each habitable room.

MVHR System Benefits

Enjoy benefits to your health and your property with a BEAM Heat Recovery Ventilation System.

Improves indoor air quality

Fresh filtered air is continuously drawn into the building via the low energy unit. The ventilation unit filters the incoming air to remove pollutants and insects which can get inside via any natural leakages such as letter boxes, trickle vents, extractor fans etc.

Helps cut down fuel bills

Unlike other ventilation options, the MVHR system offers both ventilation and heat recovery. Moist stale air is extracted from the building and clean fresh air is drawn in - the heat from the extracted air is transferred to the fresh incoming air via a heat exchanger within the ventilation unit. As a result, the air coming into the home has already been partially warmed and can off-set heating costs and fuel bills.

Health benefits

A BEAM Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery system improves indoor air quality and can help reduce symptoms for asthma and allergy sufferers. The ventilation unit filters the incoming air to remove pollutants and insects and provides constant cleaned, warmed, fresh filtered air.

Best for airtight buildings

Traditional ventilation methods such as window trickle vents and bathroom extractor fans are often counterproductive to the quest for an airtight building. An MVHR system is usually the preferred method in airtight buildings as it extracts moist stale air and supplies fresh warmed filtered air into the property while recovering up to 95% of the heat of the extracted air.

Ideal for New Builds

Effective energy efficient ventilation is now an essential element in the design and construction of all airtight new homes and buildings.
