Evaluating the success of MVHR retrofits
The aim of this project was to assess the effectiveness of the whole house mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) systems within the existing UK housing stock. This was investigated via field trials into homes where MVHR was installed as part of a comprehensive energy efficiency and environmental improvement package. Evaluations were made in terms of energy use, thermal comfort, internal air quality and acceptability to tenants.
