Clean air for businesses concerned about coronavirus

Heat recovery ventilation systems

As businesses begin to reopen again following the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, they are keen to ensure the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness.

'Clean air' has become a serious consideration as we look at ways to reduce the spread of viruses including Covid-19. More and more frequently, we are hearing requests for heat recovery ventilation systems.

A heat recovery ventilation system supplies clean, filtered fresh air that is heated from the recovered warmth of the extracted heat. A properly fitted heat recovery ventilation system provides a constant supply of fresh filtered air, maintaining the air quality whilst being practically imperceptible. This is ideal for offices, shops, and premises such as GP surgeries and dental practices.

Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation systems (MVHR) comprise of a heat exchanger and a central duct system supplying/extracting air throughout the premises. The extracted air passes through a heat exchanger, pre-heating the fresh air entering the commercial premises.

95% of the heat energy contained within the extracted air can be recovered to pre-heat the fresh air. Systems have the option of a 'summer bypass' in which fresh air bypasses the heat exchanger, bringing cooler air into the property.

Benefits of heat recovery ventilation systems include:

  • Lower heating bills as less heat energy lost through opening windows
  • Clean filtered air throughout a property reduces the build up of volatile organic vompounds (VOCs) which can reduce symptoms of allergens and hayfever
  • Heat recovery ventilation systems can help to prevent 'sick building syndrome'.
  • In this time of coronavirus Covid-19,  measures to ensure air is free of virus and bacteria is a serious consideration

The following businesses are ideal candidates for heat recovery ventilation systems:

  • Medical clinics and health centres
  • Veterinary clinics
  • Dental practices
  • Gyms
  • Churches and mosques
  • Shops and retail businesses
  • Schools and colleges
