Why should British people consider installing PRANA dMVHR right now?

Under the shadow of the war in Europe, the 2022–2023 heating season poses a real challenge to the European energy system. Therefore, people in Britain may be anxiously bracing themselves for the beginning of the cold season: will there be enough energy sources to provide everyone with sufficient heating and how much will we have to pay to heat our homes? These are the questions concerning us all now.

Every person who owns or rents a home, office, or industrial premises is now hyper aware of the issue of energy efficiency and how to preserve available energy resources. So, how do we avoid wasting energy and spending additional funds on heating?

Frequent energy-saving “solutions” that Europeans resort to involve the following standard thermal modernisations of premises:
• insulation of the facade
• insulation of the roof and walls
• installation of hermetic & plastic double-glazed windows
• installation of an individual heat point
• connecting a loggia to the room or kitchen.

Although such steps do reduce heat loss in winter, they also disrupt the natural ventilation of the property, which can lead to several problems. Apartments and offices can turn into a kind of thermos, plagued by high humidity and a constant lack of fresh air. Over time, in airtight premises, windows begin to fog up, mould and fungus appear, furniture and interior elements deteriorate, and microorganisms and bacteria harmful to the human body multiply.

And it’s not as simple as just opening the windows to aid normal ventilation, as this leads to the room’s temperature dropping and the loss of additional thermal energy for its reheating. Thus, opening the windows increases the heating costs of the building by at least 30%. In the hot season, with the need for an air-conditioner in the room, this figure rises to a 70% overspend of electricity for additional air-conditioning.

That is why, in order to retain heat and save money, specialists in the field of ventilation are pointing us towards high-performance energy-efficient technologies. One of the most affordable and effective ways to save heat without compromising indoor air quality is the PRANA recuperator / decentralised MVHR. Numerous tests and thousands of implemented PRANA projects in different parts of the world, from arid Spain, Italy, and Kazakhstan to rainy Great Britain, Sweden, and Norway, have proven the effectiveness of PRANA smart ventilation.

PRANA recuperators/ dMVHR retain up to 96% of heat and supply fresh air to the premises. A highly efficient copper heat exchanger inside the recuperator allows the heat (or coolness) of exhaust air, as it is extracted from the room, to be transferred to the fresh outside air that is being brought into the room. The exhaust and inflow air does not mix, but the streams flow simultaneously through separate chambers in the device. Therefore, fresh, oxygen-rich air that has already been heated or cooled to a comfortable temperature by the device, enters the room.

Furthermore, thanks to the device’s WiFi connectivity and numerous advanced functions, PRANA ventilation systems are convenient, safe and easy to use and control from any location. The PRANA app allows you to monitor and adjust the air quality in your premises at any time.

That is why, by installing the recuperator, you will say goodbye to a swathe of problems associated with poor ventilation. You can bask in the certainty of having high-quality clean air, heated in winter and cooled in summer, all year round. Whilst saving you from the immediate costs of heating your property, this eco-friendly option also enables you to avoid future expenditures relating to condensation, mould and dampness issues.
