Ventilation Systems Installations Ireland
Energy efficient ventilation has a big impact on homes across Ireland and Northern Ireland. All homes (new build, air tight or existing) need a supply of fresh air, not just for the health and comfort of the occupants, but also to control condensation and remove pollutants. To ensure compliant with building regulations part F, Part L in Ireland, Northern Ireland the amount of fresh air should match the needs of the dwelling and the people living within it. Additionally energy efficient air-tight homes require a ventilation system that can guarantee the best possible indoor air quality (IAQ) at all times. It is also beneficial to have a ventilation system which can help to control moisture in the home. ’Moisture is probably the most significant element because of the high rates generated by activities such as cooking and bathing, and because of the problems associated with condensation and mould growth. Therefore it is important to install a ventilation system which ensures complaint with building regulations, and can adequately meet the ventilation requirements of your home. Acorn Renewables Ltd supplies and installs a number of ventilation systems for homes across Ireland and Northern Ireland, these include
Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation System Installations
Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) is a whole house ventilation system that both supplies and extracts air throughout a property. It offers a balanced low energy ventilation solution for new dwellings and re-uses up to 95% of the heat that would have otherwise have been lost.
Demand Control Ventilation System Installations
DCV or ‘Demand Controlled Ventilation’ is based on the simple principle of having the optimum amount of fresh air in a home on a fully automated basis. It offers the ideal solution for both heating consumption and the quality of indoor air. When the need for ventilation is low, which is usually more than half of the time, savings can be made. More ventilation will be needed during times such as showering and cooking, when more moisture and humidity is created. Scientific studies have shown that DCV can result in a 30% reduction in ventilation losses compared to natural ventilation.
