The Sunday School on Grove Road in the centre of Harrogate, North Yorkshire has undergone a sympathetic restoration and the occupants will experience all the benefits of a Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) system from ventilation specialists EnviroVent.

A local property developer, set his heart on sympathetically restoring both the Sunday School and adjacent former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.

The properties, which feature a bold Italianate design with lavish architectural embellishments, have been transformed into high specification dwellings. The Sunday School, which dates back to 1929, is the first project to be completed and will be featured on Channel 4 TV programme ‘Restoration Man’ later this year.

EnviroVent recommended the energiSava 380, an MVHR system for the stunning 3,500 sq ft home, which stretches over three floors.

The energiSava 380 is a whole house heat recovery system, which provides all-year-round healthy indoor air quality. The system is extremely easy to use, with its ‘set and forget’ controls and it intelligently tracks and monitors humidity levels, detecting any rise in humidity and increasing the extract rate. The system is renowned for its energy efficiency, silent operation, whilst efficiently controlling condensation and maintaining a healthy indoor environment.

EnviroVent’s range of MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) systems use multiple extract points throughout the home to draw moist air out of the kitchen, bathrooms, and utility room. The MVHR system recovers around 90 per cent of the heat from this outgoing stale air, before feeding it back into the living rooms areas of the house as warm, fresh, filtered air, controlling relative humidity in the process.

The magnificent Grade II listed Sunday School has a wealth of period features, including a 25 ft high glass atrium and full height round arched windows and elaborate ceilings. The stone built four bedroom property also features an impressive dining room, cinema room, breakfast kitchen and its own private driveaway accessed via remote controlled wrought iron gates.
