Why should I retrofit a HRV system into my house?

If you suffer with condensation on walls or windows, or you have mould in bathrooms or wet windows in the morning, then our Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) solution will fix this overnight. It’s the perfect solution for those who suffer with these issues or with asthma or sinus issues.

The unit will gently ventilate the property at a rate of about half an air change per hour, removing moist air and unpleasant smells from the kitchen, bathrooms and toilets and extracting it to the outside.

Our Sentinel Kinetic HRV unit from Vent-axia is the next generation of whole house heat recovery ventilation systems. It will remove your home’s polluted air with ease and provide a constant supply of clean filtered air, allowing you and your family to live in an ideal indoor environment – free from mould, damp and condensation.

Why should you install a heat recovery ventilation system onto your new home?

If you have a reasonable standard of house with good quality windows and insulation, do you not think it’s crazy to have large holes in the wall of each room in order to provide ventilation? Depending on the wind direction, you may be losing excessive heat or not ventilating your home at all. By installing heat recovery ventilation systems, you can block up those 6″ holes and let our fans quietly and constantly ventilate the house, while extracting any usefully heat from the exhaust air from kitchens and bathrooms.

Where most people notice the benefits of the heat recovery ventilation system, is after a shower, as our unit will automatically boost the extract airflow to help clear the bathroom faster. Also, its great for removing odours after cooking or after there has been high occupancy in the house or people have been smoking. In the mornings some bedrooms can smell stale and you need to open the window to ventilate the room. With the Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) system installed, bedrooms are fresh in the morning and the house doesn’t smell after you host a dinner party because when you were sleeping, the system has been working hard to remove all the stale smells and replace the air with fresh, filtered and heated outdoor air.

Fresh filtered air is drawn into living spaces such as bedrooms and living rooms, providing continuous ventilation even when the house is sealed up for the day. By keeping humidity levels low and introducing warmed fresh filtered air to replace contaminated air, the quality of the internal environment is significantly improved. You can actually feel the freshness in the air within the house.

Continuous whole house ventilation can help reduce relative humidity to below 70% RH, which inhibits the ideal living and breeding conditions of the house dust mite.

The Kinetic heat recovery ventilation unit can be used with a wide range of Vent-Axia controllers and sensors. Ranging from remote controllers to wired remote sensor that can control your indoor air quality and letting your home breathe.
