Heat Recovery Ventilation is one of the most important, and most overlooked, requirements in any modern well insulated house.
A well insulated and airtight dwelling is the only way to restrict energy loss. But this also causes a problem. How do you ventilate? Relying on natural air changes through cracks, gaps or draughty windows is no longer an option. Opening windows and doors or having trickle vents defeats the purpose of building an energy efficient house. With a Genvex Heat Recovery Ventilation system you can have both – an energy efficient house with controlled constant natural fresh air ventilation with almost no heating loss.
Benefits of a Genvex Heat Recovery Ventilation System
Fresh filtered air constantly replaces stale air inside your home so no more unpleasant odours from smoking, cooking, bathroom or pets
Helps to save money by reducing your heating requirements by reusing the heat that would normally be lost through uncontrolled ventilation
Moisture build up from the bathroom and kitchen can be avoided thus eliminating mould growth and damage to the building
Helps maintain healthy humidity levels in your home making it less inviting to dust mites.
Considerable reduction in allergy triggers can be avoided by controlled internal ventilation

Genvex DO NOT produce a "One size fits all" unit. It is important that your HRV unit is correctly sized to suit your home. Too big a unit and it causes air turbulence, too small a unit and it is ineffective. Ducting also needs to be sized to match the airflow requirements.
