The Benefits of MVHR for people with Asthma and Allergies

During allergy season, Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems can play a significant role in maintaining indoor air quality. Here’s how MVHR systems can help:


Filtration: ProAir MVHR systems incorporate filters that capture airborne particles, including pollen and other allergens. These filters help to remove allergens from the incoming outdoor air, thereby reducing their concentration indoors.


Continuous ventilation: ProAir MVHR systems provide continuous ventilation by exchanging stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air. By constantly circulating air, MVHR systems can help dilute indoor allergens and maintain a healthier indoor environment.


Heat recovery: ProAir MVHR systems recover heat from the outgoing stale air and transfer it to the incoming fresh air. This process helps to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature while reducing energy consumption. Since MVHR systems operate year-round, they can provide filtered air during allergy season without compromising thermal comfort.


Controlled ventilation: ProAir MVHR systems allow for precise control over ventilation rates and airflows. This means you can adjust the system to increase ventilation during peak allergy season to ensure optimal indoor air quality.


Reduced reliance on open windows: During allergy season, keeping windows closed to prevent outdoor allergens from entering the home is crucial. ProAir MVHR systems allow you to maintain indoor air quality without relying on open windows, which can exacerbate allergy symptoms.


Overall, Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery can be an effective solution for maintaining indoor air quality during allergy season by providing continuous ventilation with filtration and heat recovery. However, it’s essential to ensure that the MVHR system is properly maintained, including regularly cleaning or replacing filters, to maximize its effectiveness in reducing allergens indoors.
