The importance of good ventilation in the home cannot be understated,
and smart bits of technology that help homeowners achieve this are gaining popularity, as they provide an intelligent solution to healthier and happier homes.
One of the most effective high-tech ventilation systems is the Unohab single room heat recovery unit by Airflow, and we’re delighted to announce that this can be ordered exclusively from Jewson branches – just get in touch and we’ll do the rest!
So, here’s a bit more information about the product that may just be the perfect fit for your next job.
What is it?
Traditional ventilation systems use separate ducts to distribute the supply and extraction of air. Unohab, on the other hand, is a decentralised mechanical ventilation solution, which means that the process of supplying and extracting air is done without ducting. It can be used in a new build or a renovation project, meaning it can be installed in addition to the existing ventilation system – saving your customers having to fork out for a brand-new system.
It has three modes – heat recovery, cross-ventilation and supply air. The latter two are designed to bring in fresh air, with the cross-ventilation mode proving particularly useful during summer, as it draws out the hot stagnant air. The supply air function also draws in fresh air when an extract fan is activated in a wet rooms, assuming the extract fans have been connected. On the other hand, the heat recovery mode switches between air supply and extraction each minute, which is designed to improve the energy efficiency of the home.
What are the benefits?
The main benefit that comes with this innovative ventilation system is energy efficiency. With heat recovery mode, Unohab has thermal efficiency capabilities of up to 88%! This not only helps homeowners save money, but will tick the boxes when it comes to building regulations, such as Part L of the Future Homes Standard – an important one that dictates fuel efficiency for new builds. Energy efficiency is also fast becoming a main consideration for homeowners when planning for any project, as they become more aware of their impact on the environment, so it’s important that you’re familiar with solutions that meet their standards.
Once installed, your customer will be able to easily regulate the system with the handy LED controller, which allows them switch between modes and control the speed of ventilation.
