If you are wondering whether MVHR, or Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery, is only suitable for new builds then we’re happy to tell you that it's not!
While MVHR systems are most commonly installed in new builds, they can also be retrofitted into existing buildings. In fact, retrofitting an MVHR system into an existing building can be a great way to improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency. there is a need for the laying of ductwork through the building so it would need to be a major refurb.
However, one of the main challenges in retrofitting an MVHR system into an existing building largely depends on the building's existing infrastructure and the availability of space for ducting and ventilation components. This requires careful planning and design to ensure that the system operates efficiently and effectively. Retrofitting an MVHR system into an existing building may require additional work and modifications to install the necessary components. However, the benefits of improved indoor air quality, reduced energy costs and increased comfort can make the investment worthwhile
Don't let the misconception that MVHR is only suitable for new builds stop you from enjoying the benefits of this innovative ventilation system!
