4mvhr.jpgResearch Report - The case for MVHR

The paper discusses Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems in UK homes, which extract warm but potentially stale air from bathrooms, kitchens, and utility rooms. They transfer the heat to fresh outdoor air through a heat exchanger. Despite being beneficial in various domestic situations, MVHR systems are relatively niche in the UK, with trickle ventilation and single-room extract fans being more commonly used. The paper challenges this convention and advocates for wider adoption of MVHR systems in both new-build and retrofit projects.
