Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems


Ventilation in offices is required in order to remove stale air and replace it with fresh air.  Stale air has less Oxygen in it and more CO2, it is desirable to remove this air so that staff are breathing in ‘fresh air’ which is Oxygen-rich, this will keep staff alert and more productive (a major cause of productivity reduction in an office throughout the day is the increased CO2 levels).

The Old Way

A problem with traditional ventilation systems is that the air it provides into an office environment will be the same temperature as the outside ambient air, so in Winter the ventilation system is bringing in cold air into the office and in the Summer it is providing warm air into the office – far from ideal!

To combat this Climachill can install a Heat Recovery Fresh Air Ventilation System which recovers heat energy which would otherwise be exhausted in the atmosphere, In Winter this energy is then used to warm the air entering the building and in Summer this energy is used to partially cool the air entering the building.  Capturing this waste energy means the heating/cooling requirements of the building are reduced, so smaller size plants can be selected, savings can therefore be made in long-term energy consumption, and carbon emissions are reduced

For New Builds Part L2 (April 2006) Building Regulations limit the amount of electrical/gas power to be used to provide heating or cooling in commercial buildings.  Therefore the building designer needs to select energy-efficient heating/cooling equipment and minimise energy losses through ventilation systems.  The inclusion of a Heat Recovery Fresh Air Ventilation System in the building design will reduce the total amount of carbon emissions.

Customer Reviews

We would like to thank your company for the reliable service provided with our air conditioning systems over the last few years. The original purchase was handled smoothly and you have always been most accommodating whenever we have needed further assistance. During our recent renovation, your company was easy to contact, quick to respond and most helpful in relocating the equipment.

After contacting several Air Conditioning Suppliers who failed to turn up, I managed to locate Climachill who carried out a site survey and installed the air conditioning to regulate the temperature in my server room, all within 21 days of the initial contact with minimal disruption. This included the installation of additional electrics to cope with the extra power draw from the 3 air conditioning units and the removal of a double glazed window for the triple extraction system. I have found Climachill’s service efficient and professional and have no hesitation in recommending them.

From installation through to ongoing maintenance I have found all at Climachill to be most helpful and efficient in all of my dealings with them. We have had no issues whatsoever with our system that they installed and it has been extremely effective in managing costs both in summer and through the winter whilst keeping us cool and warm respectively.

Climachill fitted full air conditioning to our office premises which is a converted barn in Glynde near Lewes. We received the highest level of service right through from them providing a very competitive quotation through to the complete installation. It has transformed our working environment when we end up with extreme temperatures at either end of the scale and so much so that I have installed an air conditioning system at my own house, again which Climachill have completed to an excellent standard.

Managing Director, Blockbusters Contracts, Glynde

Many thanks for carrying out such a quick and professional job here last week, we are pleased that we chose Climachill over the competition for our air-conditioning installation.  As for your competitors, we chose Climachill not only because, on a like for like basis (5&7kw units) you were cheaper but because you came across as the most professional  when you visited us initially to make the site survey and discuss our requirements.
