EnviroVent’s heatSava has been chosen by TV’s design guru Kevin McCloud to be showcased at this year’s Grand Designs Live as one of his Top 10 Green Heroes. Held at Excel in London, the show, which runs from 4-12 May, promises to be crammed full of inspirational ideas and innovative products along with expert advice and live theatre debates.
The heatSava, a single room heat recovery unit, was launched by EnviroVent last October as an energy efficient alternative to traditional extract ventilation. Designed, developed and manufactured by EnviroVent in the UK, the heatSava works by continuously extracting stale, moist air from the wet room areas of the home.
The stale, moist air passes over a high efficiency tubular heat exchange cell which has been cleverly designed to allow the air to cyclone around the barrel, just like a corkscrew, retaining the heat from the extracted air before it reaches atmosphere. At the same time, fresh air from outside is supplied through the tubes where it collects up to 75% of the heat from the extracted air before it is returned back into the room.
Ideal for bathrooms, WCs, utility rooms and kitchens in both retrofit and new build projects, the unit improves indoor air quality and controls condensation and mould problems in the most energy efficient way possible. By saving heat that would normally be lost through extraction, the heatSava could help save money on energy costs.
You can see a working version of the heatSava at Grand Designs Live in London until 12th May 2013 or click here to visit the heatSava product page.
