Airflow Development’s Duplexvent range of commercial Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) units will now feature Variable Air Volume (VAV) dampers, added to constantly monitor the air volume supplied and share this information with the centralised ventilation unit.
Ideal for commercial buildings and retail units, MVHR technology is often utilised to protect the building fabric whilst ensuring occupants are supplied with healthy, fresh air and a comfortable indoor climate.
However, the ventilation rate of many centralised MVHR systems remains the same in each room, regardless of changes in occupancy levels, temperature or humidity, meaning that constant human intervention is needed to deliver the correct air flow.
Used in conjunction with humidity or CO2 sensors, Variable Air Volume (VAV) dampers automatically control the flow of air to each zone of the building in response to changes in demand, ensuring the optimum air quality and comfort levels are met.
Airflow’s VAV system also enables manual adjustment for instances where the user requires a level of control.
