Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit
Heat reclaim using a heat recovery ventilation unit is a low-energy, high-efficiency way to heat buildings in a commercial environment. It is a simple system that delivers filtered, fresh air and extracts stale, stagnant air.
At Robinsons Facilities Services, our team of expert engineers can maintain, repair, and install all types of heat recovery ventilation units throughout Yorkshire.

How Does a Commercial Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit Work?
Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) comprises a heat exchanger, an extract fan, a supply fan and ductwork. The heat exchanger is the key component as it transfers the heat from the outgoing stale air to the incoming fresh air.
The unit moves stale air through the pipes and takes in cold air from ducts. As the airflow passes, the heat from the extracted air transfers to the fresh air. This keeps the air quality high while retaining the heat.
Benefits of Commercial Heat Recovery Ventilation Units
There are numerous benefits to ventilation with heat recovery within your commercial premises, including:
- Adaptable systems – Heat recovery ventilation systems are adaptable to many different commercial applications, including hotels, leisure, retail, schools, and offices.
- Reduced energy bills – Waste heat recovery units can have a significant impact on how much energy your commercial building uses.
- Reduced carbon footprint – Heat recovery technology is one of the best modern ways to reduce your carbon footprint by decreasing heat loss.
- Improved indoor air quality – Better air quality boosts comfort levels for staff and visitors.
- Reduced condensation – The drier, warmer air provided reduces condensation and the possibility of mould growth.
Can I Retrofit a Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit?
Not all heat recovery technology has to be in place during the building process. It is possible to retrofit heat recovery units into existing buildings and systems. However, this can be a more complex process so it is always best to seek professional advice before proceeding with heat recovery installation.
There are several different mechanical ventilation with heat recovery systems, all of which can take up a significant amount of space in your commercial building. Our team can advise you on the ideal heat reclaim unit and system for your commercial premises.

Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit FAQs
Heat recovery ventilation leverages waste heat to maximise the efficiency of your air conditioning/heating system, often cutting costs. It’s ideal for buildings with existing heating systems.
You can open your windows in the summer, which can help you to get enough ventilation in the building and keep the air fresh in your building. These systems work in both summer and winter.
You can turn off the unit in warm weather but it is not advisable because you won’t get the benefits. Heat recovery ventilation units can be useful in all seasons.
The cost of heat recovery ventilation unit installation for commercial premises can range from around £2,000 to over £7,000. The installation cost depends on a variety of factors, including building size, supply costs, existing pipework, and the efficiency and brand of the unit, among others.
It’s recommended to carry out a full service on your MVHR once a year. On top of that, regular maintenance and replacement of high-use parts, such as air filters, should take place every 3 months. A planned preventative maintenance (PPM) programme will ensure your system is working at peak efficiency all year round.
