What Makes our MVHR Systems Different?

Easy Installation

Our MVHR systems (heat recovery) have been specifically designed to be easy installed by any competent person and due to their design have up to 80% less fittings and can reduce installation time by over 50% less.

Quality Ductwork

MVHR ductwork is premaritally built into the fabric of the building and would be very disruptive to replace, so it is worth investing in a high-quality system from the outset. Our semi rigid ducting is airtight, antibacterial lined, crushproof and does not require any joiners, plus it is designed to last the lifetime of the building.

Detailed Design

A professionally designed plan is important to ensure your ventilation system is fit for purpose. We carefully design the system to provides quiet air flow rates to each room and ensure the system is the most efficient possible helping ensure lower energy consumption and noise levels.

We can design your bespoke ventilation system for you! 

We use our own in-house professionally trained CAD technicians and although this is a more expensive option than using foreign outsourced companies like our competitors it reduces overall cost with better selection of materials, a superior design and is overseen with our in-house technical and sales departments.

Quality MVHR units

We offer a wide range of domestic and commercial units from manufacturers including Vent Axia, Airflow and Xpelair to suit all projects and specifications. We help you choose a quality MVHR unit to suit the ventilation demands of the building and to achieve optimal heat recovery efficiency while still being Economical to run.

Silence is Golden

It is essential that MVHR systems run quietly or are virtually inaudible especially within already quieter well-insulated buildings. Unlike the majority of our competitors, to prevent cross talk (noise transfer between the rooms) We use semi rigid radial ducting and manifolds that have been proven to drastically reduce or remove the issue we also specify primary attenuators (silencers) to the supply manifold to reduce noise generated by the MVHR unit fans,  As a result, we design our MVHR systems to have noise levels of no more than 30 dB(A) at the extract valve and no more than 25 dB(A) at the supply valves. Our Duco MVHR units are the quietest MVHR systems in Europe, check out the video for more information.

Technical Support

Unlike most of our competitors we have our own inhouse technicians that can help you with any technical queries that you may have and can provide detailed data sheets or information required to facilitate step by step installation via telephone, e-mail or live chat.
