Ventilation Systems

Ventilation systems are utilized to ensure indoor air quality and regulate airflow within buildings.

Types of Systems

Here are some of the different types of ventilation systems commonly found:

  1. Natural Ventilation:

    • Windows and Vents: Relies on the use of operable windows, trickle vents, or other openings to allow natural airflow.

    • Stack Effect: Utilizes temperature differences to create airflow, with warmer air rising and exiting through higher openings, drawing in cooler air from below.

  2. Mechanical Ventilation:

    • Exhaust Fans: Extracts stale air from specific areas like bathrooms, kitchens, or utility rooms, expelling it outside.

    • Supply Fans: Introduces fresh air into the building, typically used in conjunction with exhaust systems to maintain balanced airflow.

  3. Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV):

    • A type of mechanical ventilation system that uses a heat exchanger to transfer heat from outgoing stale air to incoming fresh air, thus reducing energy loss.

  4. Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR):

    • An advanced form of HRV that not only transfers heat but also recovers and transfers moisture, maintaining a comfortable indoor environment.

  5. Positive Input Ventilation (PIV):

    • A system that introduces filtered, tempered air into a property from a central location, usually the hallway or landing, to improve indoor air quality and combat issues like condensation.

  6. Demand-Controlled Ventilation (DCV):

    • Adjusts ventilation rates based on the actual demand or occupancy of spaces, optimizing energy efficiency by providing ventilation only when needed.

  7. Whole-House Ventilation Systems:

    • Designed to provide comprehensive ventilation throughout the entire property, ensuring consistent airflow and air quality across various rooms and spaces.

  8. Spot Ventilation:

    • Targets specific areas or rooms, such as bathrooms or kitchens, using localized exhaust fans to remove pollutants and moisture directly from the source.

Selecting a System

When selecting a ventilation system in the UK, factors such as building size, occupancy, usage patterns, and energy efficiency considerations should be taken into account to determine the most suitable option for optimal indoor comfort and air quality. We'll guide you accordingly based on your specific situation.​
