With energy bills at an all time high, anything the developer or householder can do to make their houses more energy efficient not only helps the environment, but also cuts that expensive energy usage.

Heat recovery units provide continuous ventilation, extracting warm moist air from bathrooms, kitchens and other wet rooms and passing it over a heat exchanger to re-utilise that warmth in the fresh air it brings in through ducts to ventilate habitable rooms such as living rooms and bedrooms.
