When to install a Heat Recovery Ventilation (MVHR) System

Whether our team of MVHR installers are professionally installing your system, or we supply a DIY MVHR system to you, installation should take place as follows:

Plan Your Ventilation Strategy

A well designed ventilation system is critical and should be incorporated into the drawings at as early a stage as possible. A ventilation strategy is essential for every new home and should be implemented alongside all other primary services. This is something which should be discussed at design stage.

If you are interested in MVHR for your new home, we recommend sending in your plans for a free quotation just after the design stage, when you receive planning permission.

Block Build

MVHR installation begins when the building is watertight - this is when the roof is complete, windows and external doors are in. A void space of between 100mm - 150mm below the concrete slab must be factored in to incorporate the duct system for the ground floor. Ducting should be laid before any other services are installed below the concrete slab. Ducting should be installed before the metal grid/ timber baton ceiling is erected.

Timber-frame Construction

MVHR installation begins when the building is watertight - this is when the roof is complete, windows and external doors are in. Timber partition walls and floors must be in place. Ducting should be laid before any other services are installed.

Best Practice MVHR Installation

All systems are designed in-house by our experienced technical team and installed by our own team of BPEC registered MVHR installers.

Our Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems are installed with smoothflow rigid ducting throughout, providing higher heat efficiency. The resulting low pressure loss will mean a lower energy use and the system will be quieter due to efficient low velocity. This solid ducting is resistant to crush damage during the construction phase.

We only use precision engineered metal and plastic fittings, ducting and silencers mechanically fastened and sealed at every joint.
