Cementing its position at the forefront of innovation in low carbon ventilation, Vent-Axia has launched its latest product development for the residential market – the Sentinel Kinetic mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) system. Part of the Vent-Axia Lo Carbon initiative, the Sentinel Kinetic is designed to be a SAP Appendix Q listed ventilation solution capable of 90% heat recovery, so helping to reduce the DER of new build properties.
A whole house, multi-room ducted solution, this residential MVHR system combines supply and extract ventilation in one unit. Warm, moist air is extracted from wet rooms through ducting and passed through the heat exchanger before being exhausted to the outside. Fresh incoming air is preheated via the integral heat exchanger which recovers up to 90% of the heat energy that would otherwise be wasted. The unit’s energy saving Vent-Axia LoWatt DC motors further improve its efficiency and carbon reducing capabilities, with the Sentinel Kinetic boasting 0.72w/l/s SFP.
In addition, heat recovery ventilation reduces excessive moisture in the air, combating condensation and subsequent mould growth, saving money on maintenance and decoration in the long and short-term.
