Polypipe - Silavent Green Line HRX MVHR unit (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery)
Polypipe Ventilation has launched the Silavent Green Line HRX range of Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) appliances.
Manufactured in the UK, the new 2010 Building Regulations compliant and SAP Q listed appliances work by warming fresh air drawn into the building using the heat from waste stale air extracted from the kitchen, and up to seven wet rooms, using an efficient counter flow heat exchanger.
The HRX range features very low specific fan powers for reduced energy usage whilst at the same time providing a quiet, reliable operation and delivering a higher SAP rating. Further design features include a wiring centre external to the unit to prevent moisture from damaging the electronics, an optional frost protection system to prevent ice damage and a moulded EPP casing to minimise air leakage and provide improved thermal efficiency and noise absorption.
All units in the HRX range are ‘ambidextrous’ so that the units can be fitted to the left or right of the property regardless of the location of the external walls. This also avoids the need for complex ‘cross over’ duct runs which can be an issue in buildings with limited space. The units themselves are compact and lightweight and will readily fit in standard kitchen cupboards as well as lofts.
Neil Tilsley, Managing Director of Polypipe Ventilation, comments: “MVHR is now widely recognised as being effective in recovering waste energy, thereby reducing heating costs and energy usage, as well as helping to prevent condensation and improve overall indoor air quality. Polypipe’s new HRX MVHR range has been carefully engineered to directly address these issues, making these some of the most effective units in the market today.”
The Silavent Green Line HRX range has been designed to work most efficiently when used with Polypipe’s Domus ducting systems.
