Heat Recovery Ventilation is an excellent solution for care homes and retirement homes, especially in conjunction with Passive design.
Occupants and staff benefit from continuous comfort ventilation with HRV:
– No cold drafts
– Continuously fresh air supply
– Warm environment
– No build up of smells and other pollutants
Several Passive House care homes have been built across Europe with HRV systems. Besides tremendous savings on heating energy, occupants and staff alike felt the completely different indoor climate, compared to conventional care home buildings.
