FAHRenergy™ is best'
FAHRenergy recovery ventilation units are designed for simple installation at a minimum cost. They are small, efficient, lightweight and easy to install.
efficiency, low voltage (12vDC), low power, low weight and small size
allow for installation almost anywhere:
Single or two storey house, summer house, caravan, boat, conservatory, cellar, greenhouse, garage, light industry etc.
From UK Building Regulations 2007, Document F
The UK building regulations of 2007 states that a dwelling must have an air exchange of 0.3litres per second per m2. This is necessary to improve the general health of the occupier and prevent rot and mould in the house. By achieving this with an HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator) thousands of pounds are saved and CO2 emissions avoided.
0.3litres per second per m2 corresponds to 1.25m³ per hour per m2
Two Bedroom House
One FAHRenergy Power unit will deliver 90m³ of fresh, pre heated air every hour.
This is sufficient for a small two bedroom house with a floor area to 85m².
For a two storey house two FAHRenergy Medium units are a better choice than one power unit. They deliver to 120m³ of fresh air per hour and handles a 120/1.08 = 110m² house. The one unit supplies the upper floor and the other supplies the lower floor. By splitting the installation of a fresh air ventilation system into two each task becomes easier and is generally done in two hours. Splitting the installation into two systems also reduces the length of needed ducts and thus reduces cost of labour and heat losses in the ducts.
Three To Six
For a 3 bedroom house two FAHRenergy Power units may be chosen. Two systems will supply fresh air to a 170m2 house (UK regulations 2006).
The one unit supplies the upper floor and the other supplies the lower floor. By splitting the installation of a -fresh air ventilation system into two each task becomes easier and is generally done in 3 hours. Splitting the installation into two systems also reduces the length of needed ducts and thus reduces cost of labour and heat losses in the ducts.
Principally one system exchanges air for two rooms and might thus be positioned in the middle between the two rooms to ease installation time and cost.
Many DIY persons will find it a pleasant and easy task.
Three Bedroom System (Assuming 29% energy price increase per year)
Energy price increase from 2003 to 2006 was over 30% per year
Single or two storey house.
Depending on your particular energy price a FAHRenergy fresh air system for a standard 3 to 4 bedroom house recovers energy to a value of £1058 the first year to £5299 total savings over 4 years. No tax, VAT and fees.
FAHRenergy Fresh Air Heat Recovery is a very simple way to reduce your dependency on energy.
The low noise, small size and weight makes the Medium and Power units ideal for fresh air supply to a work bench. With a noise level of only 42 to 44dbA the unit may be placed next to, under or just above the work bench.
