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. 

The whole premise of heat recovery units is that they recover the heat and energy that would otherwise have been lost.  The selection available from VORTICE offers a variety of great features and benefits suitable for many domestic and commercial applications. 

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. 


The Vort 450 Avel D is a case in point; this heat recovery unit this heat recovery unit which is suitable for a house with a kitchen plus seven additional wet rooms, is also Passive House Certified. 

The Passive House standard, established in Germany in 1996, is regarded as one of the most energy efficient standards in the world and is designed to provide homes that are supremely comfortable, ensuring good air quality and consistent indoor temperatures.
