Breath in - Ventilation Systems - Passive House Systems IE

Dear readers,

Breathe in…and let the reading begin!

Did you know that the verb ‘ventilate’ has been recorded in English in early 15th century? This word comes from Latin ventilare meaning ‘to brandish, toss in the air, winnow, agitate, set in motion’ – its original notion is of cleaning grain by tossing it in the air and letting the wind blow away the chaff.

The usage of this word may have changed over the course of time, but the meaning is basically the same: blowing away the chaff or dust particles, ventilation is all about clearing space with the help of air. This is how are products function as well: they replace foul air in enclosed places with fresh, pure air. Our offer comprises four main categories which differ in purpose and technical features.

HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation)
PIV (Positive Input Ventilation)
MEV (Mechanical Extract Ventilation)
DCV (Demand Control Ventilation)

Let us introduce you this week to a category which is used to reduce the heating and cooling demands of buildings: Heat Recovery Ventilation.

This system is designed to supply conditioned air to the indoor area to maintain a certain temperature which keeps a dwelling fully ventilated. Once the stale air is extracted, the heat is being recovered thanks to a high-efficient heat exchanger which optimizes the energy loss of the house. The incoming air is filtered and heated using the energy previously recovered and then directed through a platform that distributes fresh air directly into the room.

Our best sellers are to be found in this category, such as Blauberg Komfort EC S1B 350. This is a wall-mounted heat recovery air handling unit suitable for supplying and extracting air in dwellings such as flats, apartments, houses, and other buildings. The heat recovery feature minimises heat loss while the unit provides the best suitable indoor microclimate for your home. It has a heat recovery efficiency rate of up to 85% and a maximum air flow rate of up to 415 m³/h.
