Introduction to Heat Recovery Ventilation Friday 7th of February

We will hold a training course in our  Galway Office, Polkeen Industrial Estate, Tuam Road, Castlegar, Galway, H91 WYR8, on Friday the 7th of February.
The course will focus on the installation of heat recovery ventilation systems, the concepts and the technology which go alongside. The instruction and guidance provided will be based on many years experience of designing, manufacturing, installing and commissioning of HRV systems.

A €50 fee is required to book your place please contact Breda on 091 739 442  or email 

Course objectives
To provide the course recipient with a basic understanding and appreciation of the following, as relevant to residential ventilation systems with heat recovery.

1. Correct utilisation of the terms used in the ventilation industry.
2. An overview of heat exchanger technology.
3. How to calculate air velocities given air flows and duct sizes.
4. System pressures and the consequences for efficiency.
5. Mould growth, its causes and prevention.
6. The hygroscopic properties of air as relevant to ventilation.
7. Efficiencies in fan and motor technologies.
8. How to design for comfort, in terms of airflow and air movement.
9. Design duct layouts which work, in a residential context.
10. Ventilation and acoustics.
11. Controls strategy for HRV.
12. Air purification and filtration.

The course will also help participants;
