  • 18 Dec 2019

Vortice has launched a version of its popular Vort Avel heat recovery unit which is thermally efficient and accredited under the German Passivhaus standard, the Vort Avel 450 D.

Suitable for vertical wall installation, it has a high-efficiency counter cross-flow heat exchanger and automatically activated anti-freeze protection. The front panel gives direct access to the main internal components and allows for easy change of filters.

The Vort Avel 450 D has four operational speeds and a 100% mechanical by-pass and its design allows for virtually maintenance-free operation.

Sales Manager, Paul Gunner comments: “This is the first of the VORTICE ventilation products for which we have specifically applied for Passive House accreditation and we were pleased to gain certification. All our products are designed with energy efficiency in mind and performance details are included on our website and in our catalogues.”
