MVHR : What Is It – The Importance Of Ventilation

MVHR : What is it ?
Whenever we discuss a project with a client, one aspect of the specification that we always recommend they consider, is the ventilation system. It’s never as glamorous as the heating system, but in new homes we consider it even more important. A new home, whether it is one of ours or supplied by someone else, are designed to be very thermally efficient and with this, have a high standard of air-tightness. Hence, if you do not ventilate correctly, this leads to stale air; condensation and many other issues.
We attach here an extract from a trade publication which we think provides a good brief overview. If you are planning to build a new home, please have a read. Thanks to Richard Paine and Architects Datafile.
