About the Slimline 150

The high-efficiency EnviroVent Slimline 150 mechanical ventilation heat recovery unit is ideal for ceiling mounted applications such as care homes, offices and student accommodation to provide optimum ventilation. It can also be wall mounted using the supplied brackets. With a height of just 200mm, the low profile and compact design is perfect for installations where space is restricted.

For renovation projects, the Slimline 150 offers an excellent choice for smaller dwellings and can be installed in areas such as above suspended ceilings in the central hallway of an apartment. The Slimline 150 achieves a maximum airflow rate of 150 m3/h. A ‘Plus’ version is also available featuring additional connection options such as a CO2 sensor.


What is Heat Recovery?

As building efficiency is improved with wall and loft insulation, draught proofing and double glazing, buildings are becoming more air tight and are consequently less well ventilated. Good ventilation is vital to our health and the fabric of our homes. Opening windows is one option, however this is not ideal due to security risks, loss of heat and energy in colder months.

To solve these problems, heat recovery ventilation can provide fresh filtered air, energy efficiency and a comfortable all year round climate for your property. Stale, moist air is extracted out of the wet rooms of a property. These include the kitchen, bathrooms, utility and en-suite rooms. This moist air is then ducted to a central unit.

This extracted air passes over a heat exchanger before being ducted to outside. Simultaneously, fresh air is drawn into the unit from outside, and is warmed by the high efficiency heat exchange cell. This tempered, fresh air is then delivered through supply vents into the living, dining and bedroom areas.

This constant supply of clean, tempered air into the property creates a healthy and ideal environment, maintaining stable humidity levels, free from condensation and mould. Sufferers of asthma, house dust mite populations and other respiratory problems should find this method of ventilation significantly beneficial.

Passive House Certified

The Slimline Range of products are Passive House certified and manufactured with the latest energy-saving technology. The Passive House concept is the only internationally recognised, performance-based energy standard in construction.

Constant Flow Control

The ‘constant flow’ technology ensures maximum efficiency and that the commissioned airflow rate is always delivered despite any resistance encountered in the ductwork or filters. The ‘constant flow control’ system also enables commissioning to be carried out much quicker and more easily, saving on installation costs.

Silent and Low Energy

There are a number of factors why the Slimline Range is so quiet. Engineered with aerodynamically-designed fans to run at lower rates enables noise to be reduced and minimalized. In addition, the unit has been designed with a larger heat exchanger, which minimises resistance to deliver exceptionally quiet running.

Frost Protection

An intelligent frost protection system based on temperature and pressure prevents the heat exchanger from freezing when it is very cold outside. The Slimline 150 unit combines this with an integral pre-heater.

Standard Bypass

The appliances come as standard with a 100% bypass for use when it is warm outside and heat recovery is not desired. The bypass is controlled fully automatically on the basis of the
measured indoor and outdoor temperatures.

Slimline 150 Control Module

Control Options

The Slimline 150 comes as standard with a control module that can be used to adjust the basic settings and air flow rates. The built-in timer function can be used to set the ventilation rate per day/week/weekend. Additionally, one or more 4-way switches, wireless RF controls or a humidity sensor may be installed.
