Vents

Vents and voids

Vents, more often than not, are dysfunctional. Either ineffective or obsolete and need replacing with an up to date appropriate solution or be closed off.

  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • SR-MVHR
  • dMEV
  • Back-draught shutters

 


Why – Objectives

How – Methodology and process

What – Materials and application

Research – An evidence-based approach

Advice and support – Workshops and consultancy

 


Objectives

– Kitchen extractors, if fitted, are often not connected to the outside and install good backdraught shutter. Not all cooker hood extractors have backdraught shutter.

– Bathroom extractor
– Envirovent pressure and humidity controlled unit

SR-MVHR (Single Room – Mechanical Ventilation heat recovery)

– MVHR would extract moist air from the kitchen and bathroom and supply fresh air to bedrooms. A good option in a rental property.
