Indoor air quality continues to be essential for our well-being, among other things reducing the spread of Covid-19. Virus transmission occurs more readily inside than out. Inadequate ventilation and insufficient fresh air allow pathogens to build up, increasing the likelihood of infection. Government advice is for enclosed areas to be regularly ventilated (mechanically or by letting in fresh air). This can reduce infections by over 70%. Ineffective ventilation contributes to dank, musty smells; condensation on windows and walls; mould growth; and a general deterioration to the fabric of the building. Other consequences which may develop over time, are a rise in the incidence of house dust mites, with consequent allergy problems and poor respiratory health.

Thus, mechanical ventilation is even more of a necessity for the 21st century home. A wellthought out, professionally designed, efficient, quiet and economic ventilation system is vital. Vectaire’s whole house heat recovery products are aimed at controlling all these problems. They can be installed in all types of dwellings, and are designed to ensure that ventilation is always delivered at the optimum (and most economic and energy efficient rate) for the comfort of residents. They provide continuous ventilation by extracting pollutants and humidity and maintain a constant intake of fresh air whilst meeting the latest requirements for energy efficiency, environmental friendliness and economy.

Vectaire has both vertical and horizontal MVHRs within its range. They are all low energy products with EC motors and are manufactured using the latest technologies to ensure both optimum ventilation and air quality combined with low noise levels, running costs and excellent SFP ratings. Commissioning is via LCD screen. The upright whole house heat recovery units – the Midis and the Maxis – offer the option of either an integral LCD or a remote LCD commissioning unit (and the “BY-AT” models incorporate integral acoustic attention to ensure really low noise levels). The in-line EVOs, Mini and Studio can be commissioned using the remote unit. Thus, the commissioning engineer can easily adjust detailed unit functions including, for example, the trickle, purge and boost speeds for each motor, the length of the boost speed over-run time, the time delay before the boost speed kicks in, holiday mode and night-time boost inhibitor times. The user can see the speed at which the fan is operating, the relative humidity etc, and when the filters need replacing. The user can also set the unit to holiday mode for energy saving when the dwelling is not occupied. These units are all manufactured in our Andover factory to ISO9001 and are SAP PCDB Listed.

Vectaire’s single room heat recovery unit, HREC1003, is a versatile unit (available in three tube lengths; can be rotated into four positions; incorporates a summer bypass and frost-stat) and has the added advantage of saving both money and heat. It has a 75% heat exchange efficiency. Slim in-line MEVs are available – good for where space is limited. All these in-line units are for loft or cupboard installation and have variable choice of trickle, boost and purge speeds.

Vectaire axial or centrifugal dMEVs are particularly suited for toilets, bathrooms, en-suites, kitchens or utility rooms – everywhere steam or odours are generated. All these continuous running products are economic to run and will properly ventilate all residential properties. They are SAP PCDB listed.

Vectaire can design a ventilation system for your project, and can also advise on small, medium and large commercial/industrial ventilation systems, helping to ensure that restaurants, offices, hospitals, schools etc are properly and safely ventilated.
