The benefits of heat-recovery ventilation

Mitsubishi, air conditioning, heat recovery ventilation

Mitsubishi Electric has published a brochure focusing on the benefits of effective ventilation systems in buildings — including lower running costs and CO2 emissions, whilst delivering a fresh and comfortable internal environment. The brochure highlights the company’s range of Lossnay mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR), which can work effectively on its own or with a building’s air-conditioning system.

Jason Tinsley, the company’s ventilation specialist, says, ‘We have spent years refining our paper core [heat exchanger], which captures both the latent and sensible heat from the outgoing air and uses it to bring the incoming air nearer to the room temperature.’

The ability to capture latent heat means that the new air is less static and dry. A bypass offers free summer cooling when required.
