Ventilation Series 2: Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) – Online

Event Details

 Registration is closed for this event
Part of a new, online 2-part series on ventilation. This session can be attended as a stand-alone seminar, or book both sessions at a special series rate.

We spend 90% of our lives inside buildings and yet the indoor air quality is often poor. As we continue to improve the airtightness of our buildings, we need to ensure that the quality of indoor air is maintained for our health and wellbeing. 

Join us for this new 2-part online series on ventilation, with the first session offering an overview of ventilation and a focus on demand controlled ventilation and the second session covering MVHR.  

See listing for the first session to book both sessions at a special series rate.

About this session 

Tom Heywood and Ben East will explain when it is right to use MVHR, good design watchpoints, making space for ducts and units, what makes MVHR perform optimally and the critical points for good installation and commissioning. You will understand the range of benefits MVHR will deliver from a health, comfort and performance perspective.  

Ben will show us an MVHR set-up at his Bristol showroom. Tom is currently installing MVHR in his own retrofit, so he brings his personal experience of the practical considerations involved with MVHR and retrofit projects.
