Good ventilation, climate crisis and Covid19

A well ventilated home can be achieved without ‘opening windows for 10 minutes every hour when socialising’ and losing all the heat in your home (see today’s Guardian article)! The UK Government should be promoting Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery and Demand Control Ventilation. Over the festive period when people are socialising indoors, MVHR has the ability to be put into boost mode which, with a correctly designed system, will increase the ventilation rate significantly throughout the property. DCV will automatically react to higher humidity/occupancy levels and increase the ventilation rate in response to its environment. Both of these options keep the air moving throughout the house and, in these times of climate crisis and Covid 19, it’s possible to stay safe covid-wise without sacrificing energy efficiency. #cop26glasgow
