DO´s about mechanical ventilation with heat recovery in passive house!

Importance of HVAC system in passive house is huge! Here are what you should DO when thinking, designing and building a passive house:

  • think about mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) location at an early stage
  • make sure the MVHR is easy to access for filter changes
  • get a full ductwork design done in time to integrate with the architectural design
  • have the system commissioned on completion – you need to do this for certification
  • allow for some sort of heating system, but make it cheap and simple
