This hotel in Birmingham is one of two Hilton hotels for which Xpelair Ventilation Solutions has supplied bespoke ventilation solutions.

With structural limitations making it not possible to install central ventilation systems for two new Hilton Group hotels, Thermatic Engineering specified Xpelair individual MVHR (mechanical ventilation with heat recovery) units in all of the rooms as the most effective approach. Xpelairís Customvent team for bespoke solutions worked with Thermatic to develop an energy-efficient system that would meet and exceed the ventilation requirements of each building. 419 units have been installed to improve air quality in bedrooms and public areas.

The Hampton by Hilton Birmingham has 285 rooms. The hotel in Lincoln has 115 rooms as part of the executive Doubletree by Hilton portfolio.

Steve Mongan, head of marketing at Xpelair, explains, ĎThe bespoke systems were designed to exceed the criteria required by Thermatic, offering easy-to-install and highly energy-efficient ventilation solutions. Lightweight in construction, they can be wall or loft-mounted by one person using the fixing brackets supplied. The energy-efficient design means that could saving up to 278 kg of carbon a year compared to traditional AC heat-recovery systems.

The units supplied were reversible so that could be handed to meet any ducting configuration. Other key benefits include a highly insulated structural-foam body to four 125 mm top-entry spigot connections. They have a 90% efficient heat exchanger, EC ultra-low-energy multi-speed single-inlet external-rotor motors and long-life G4 filters.
