Domestic buildings alone contribute to 30% of the UK’s CO2 emissions. And with new house building targets increasing over the coming years, the effect on energy consumption is likely to be substantial.
We are all being encouraged to reduce energy consumption and make homes more efficient by way of better insulation, draught proofing and double-glazing.
And yet our everyday actions such as opening windows, using kitchen extractor fans, and switching on bathroom extractors dramatically reduce the positive impact of efficiency measures that we put in place.
This wasted heat causes us to burn more fossil fuels than we need, contributing to global warming and ozone depletion - the Greenhouse effect.
How do our systems help?
Our ventilation systems:
- Encourage substantial savings
- Reduce noise contamination
And, by fitting a heat recovery ventilation system the following benefits can be achieved:
- Kinder to the environment: stale, polluted air is extracted and replaced by fresh filtered air from outside 24 hours a day
- Less wasted heat: the heat from the extracted air is recycled by way of a heat exchanger that also helps prevent cross contamination between outgoing stale air and filtered incoming air.
- Energy efficient: up to 98% of stale air is recycled
- Less noise contamination: all ventilation systems are specially designed to operate at a whisper
- Substantial savings: running costs of a typical ADM system equate to energy output of a normal light bulb (70watts of electricity). This is more than offset against the savings achieved from the recycling of extracted stale air
