What is Heat Recovery Ventilation and Why Use It?

When heat is produced as part of a building’s operation or its manufacturing processes, being able to recover it can have a significantly positive effect on efficiency and performance. What would otherwise require additional heat production and energy consumption, is efficiently recovered without additional plant capital cost to the building owner.

At Varming Consulting Engineers Ireland, we use techniques like heat recovery to decrease the carbon footprint of our client projects. Combined with countless other design efficiency techniques, building’s can now be created as self-sustaining units that can even contribute energy back to the national grid.

Buildings that use heat recovery enjoy a number of benefits:

  • A constant, comfortable climate is able to be easily controlled

  • Up to 90% of the building’s heat is retained

  • Healthier indoor air quality can be maintained with minimal energy usage

  • A significant reduction in the need for air conditioning use

  • The building is markedly less expensive to heat

Concepts like heat recovery ventilation are becoming more and more important, as building services design consultants are looking for new and improved ways to use energy.
