Recycling Heat

It’s always nice when the building ties in with the campaigns that we are running. This month we get to feature a new device that complements our Waste Isn’t Rubbish campaign. We already have high rates of recycling and composting for our physical waste, but until now we haven’t been able to recycle our heat.

This all changed when we installed our Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery system in December. Before we installed it, we had to let a lot of our heat escape out of the toilet extractors to comply with building regulations. We also had a meeting room with a few damp issues that needed addressing.

Now, we can extract 90% of the heat from the smelly air that comes out of the loos and put it into the fresh air going into the meeting room. This should mean we have fresher air, less damp problems and lower bills. Triple win.
