Robbens Refreshes UK Homes with New Heat Recovery Ventilation Units


Already a leading name in underfloor heating, industry pioneer Robbens has broadened its portfolio with the launch of a controlled home ventilation unit with heat recovery. Developed by parent company FRÄNKISCHE, the new Profi-air system combines cutting-edge fan technology with advanced heat recovery, and intelligent controls to provide the ultimate in home comfort.

Robbens’ Profi-air system is available in two output sizes – the 250 Touch and the 400 Touch (for larger properties). Both units are designed to provide a vital supply of fresh air for residential properties, all whilst removing any odours or unwanted moisture that can commonly lead to issues such as damp or mould. With a heat recovery efficiency of over 90%, they also ensure incoming air is kept at a consistent, comfortable temperature even when outside temperatures reach zero.

Comments Rob Stabbins, National Sales Manager at Robbens Systems: “Today, homes are being built or renovated to be extremely air tight in line with zero carbon targets. Whilst heat loss prevention is key, so is the supply of fresh, natural air – both for the property and its residents. Our new Profi-air units are the perfect solution and provide refreshing ventilation without wasting any heat.”

With a simple touchscreen control, Profi-air systems are extremely user-friendly. They can even be remotely controlled via any smart phone, tablet or computer, for added convenience and accessibility. As well as providing clean, draught-free ventilation and a healthy home environment, they are also suitable for those suffering from allergies. Special supply and extraction air filters prevent pollen and fine dust from entering the property and humid air is also removed. The pipes also feature antistatic and antibacterial agents for added hygiene and safety.

For installers, Profi-air units incorporate a host of innovative qualities making them easy to fit, adjust and maintain. They are also completely flexible, offering a choice of connection options, valve outlets and pipe types to meet individual requirements.

“At Robbens we pride ourselves on providing the ultimate in home heating comfort,” adds Stabbins. “However, as properties become increasingly energy efficient and well-insulated, ventilation is just as important. The addition of our new Profi-air systems means we can now offer the best of both worlds – fresh, healthy air and comfortable living temperatures.”
