To meet the requirements of UK Building Regulations, it is vital to install an energy-efficient ventilation solution into new build dwellings. As new build properties have become more sealed up, the role of ventilation products has become more important by reducing stale air and humidity build-which can have a detrimental impact on indoor air quality. Very often a ducted system such as MEV or MVHR is specified in the new build because the ducting is straightforward to install as the property is being constructed. However, the installation of dMEV fans in each wetroom is also another excellent method of gaining compliance.

Decentralised Mechanical Extract Ventilation (dMEV)
dMEV fans run continuously in each wet room of a property and are designed to remove odours, stale air, and humidity. They run at a low (trickle) speed unless boost speeds are activated by either an external switch or humidity
Centralised Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV)
MEV is a central fan system that runs continuously. It is an effective method of removing odours, stale air, and humidity from each wet room of a property. The central unit is typically installed in a loft space or cupboard.
Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR)
MVHR is a whole-house ventilation system. It works by continuously extracting warm stale air from wetrooms whilst at the same time drawing in fresh, filtered air from the outside. A heat exchanger in the central unit transfers heat from the extracted air into the supply air. MVHR is therefore a very energy-efficient ventilation solution.
