Thames Valley Housing Association uses Polypipe heat recovery systems
POLYPIPE’S HEAT RECOVERY UNITS PROVE POPULAR WITH HOUSING ASSOCIATIONS
Polypipe Ventilation, provider of energy-saving domestic and light commercial ventilation systems, has supplied one if its largest orders for its heat recovery systems. The order for 98 HR01Ws has come from Bugler Developments for two housing association projects with Thames Valley Housing Association and One Housing Group.
Energy Saving Trust Best Practice compliant and SAP Appendix Q rated, the HR01 Mechanical Extract Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) units work by warming fresh air drawn into the building with heat extracted from waste stale air – as found in the kitchen or bathroom for example - thus reducing the need for heating. The HR01 units themselves, which are among the quietest on the market, are light weight and compact, for simple, quick installation in kitchen cupboards or loft spaces.
The Polypipe units have been installed by Verwin Plumbing and Heating Ltd. who recommended them as a cost-effective and efficient alternative to those originally specified. They have been fitted into the 44 apartments at One Housing Group’s St. Pancras Way, Camden site, and into Thames Valley Housing Association’s site - Third Cross Road, Twickenham. The units have been supplied by plumbers merchant Graham.
Polypipe Ventilation is at the forefront in delivering energy-efficient solutions and plays a vital role in helping customers to achieve the higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
