MASTERCLASS: MVHR & Heating Strategies


Mon 22 Sep 2014 12:00 – 18:30
Saint Gobain Innovation Centre, 95 Great Portland Street, London, W1W 9NY, UK

When designing to Passivhaus standard, Mechanical Ventilation Systems with Heat Recovery (MVHR) are essential to achieve the required performance levels by providing fresh air supply with minimal heat-loss. The Masterclass 'MVHR- Making ventilation systems work' organised by the Trust and limited to around 20 participants focuses on what to look out for when designing, specifying, installing and commissioning MVHR units. The Masterclass will be delivered by ventilation experts Alan Clarke and Andrew Farr, Green Building Store, and aims to answer all the questions you have always wanted - and will be able - to ask, such as: At which air-tightness levels is MVHR beneficial and why? What are other ventilation options? Why not just open windows? What are typical running costs and capital costs? How noisy is it? What about air-quality? What are maintenance and access requirements?
