Why Choose MVHR for your home?

MVHR stands for Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery. A whole home ventilation system used in buildings to provide fresh, filtered air while retaining most of the heat from the outgoing air, up to 90%. Here are some reasons to choose MVHR as the most effective ventilation solution for your home:

Improved Indoor Air Quality:

MVHR systems help maintain a constant supply of fresh air into your home while extracting stale air, pollutants, and excess moisture. This promotes better indoor air quality, which is crucial for health and comfort, especially in modern tightly sealed buildings where natural ventilation may be limited.


Energy Efficiency:

By recovering heat from the outgoing air, MVHR systems can significantly reduce the energy required to heat or incoming air. This can lead to substantial energy savings over time, making the building more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. ProAir MVHR  systems are designed to operate continuously at a low rate to minimise electrical energy consumption.


MVHR systems help maintain a consistent indoor temperature and humidity level by balancing the exchange of air. This contributes to a more comfortable and pleasant living or working environment throughout the year, with fewer drafts and temperature fluctuations.

Noise Reduction:

Properly designed and installed MVHR systems can help reduce external noise penetration into the building while maintaining a constant flow of fresh air. This can be particularly beneficial in urban or noisy environments, enhancing overall comfort indoors.

Condensation Control:

By controlling humidity levels, MVHR systems help prevent condensation buildup on windows, walls, and other surfaces. This reduces the risk of mould growth, dampness, and structural damage, improving the longevity of the building and minimizing maintenance requirements.  The boost function on your system increases the ventilation rate when required, for example when  showers or baths are being used.

Regulatory Compliance:

Building regulations require the installation of MVHR systems in new constructions or major renovations to promote energy efficiency and indoor air quality. All ProAir units installed are fully certified and in compliance with current Part F building regulations.

Overall, MVHR systems offer a range of benefits for buildings, including improved air quality, energy efficiency, comfort, and durability. However, the effectiveness of an MVHR system depends on various factors such as proper design, installation, and maintenance, so it’s essential to consult with experts to ensure the system meets your specific needs and requirements. ProAir provides an end-to-end service to ensure your home will be healthy, comfortable and energy efficient.
