What is Ventilation / Heat Recovery?
Current building regulations require that new properties are built with high levels of insulation and air-tightness, making them substantially more energy-efficient. A side effect of these construction methods can result in poor indoor air quality as condensation and stale air generated from cooking, cleaning and bathing etc remain trapped inside . Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR), provides a solution to these problems, significantly improving ventilation and air quality, whilst recovering the heat that would otherwise be lost outside.
Typically MVHR systems are implemented with a central fan and heat exchange unit (or more than one in larger properties) with internal pipework running through ceiling voids and loft areas to most rooms and vented to the outdoors though wall or roof vents.
Extract pipework takes moisture-laden, stale air from ‘wet’ areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms. The heat from this stale air is recovered in the heat exchanger, and used to warm fresh air from outdoors delivered via the separate supply pipework into the living areas of the home.

Why use Ventilation / Heat Recovery?
The insulation levels in new build properties can be so good that over 50% of heat loss and hence energy costs can be due to ventilation losses. MVHR provides a solution to recover that energy and save a large proportion of the overall energy cost.
- Significant energy savings with very low running costs
- Substantially improved air quality throughout the property
- Heat from secondary heat sources (e.g. stoves) distributed through the house
- Low noise levels – essential as MVHR systems are constantly running
- Full design and installation package available
- 5 year warranty
- Options for summer bypass and integral frost protection
- Low maintenance and easy access filters (no tools required)

Air source heat pump replacing costly oil fired boiler. Best purchase ever. Saving over £2,000 pa on oil and £26 per month on boiler maintenance. Electricity bill only gone up by £1,000. Home is much warmer throughout the day, which is ideal now my wife and I are retired and spend a lot more time at home during the day. Found the company to be very professional, helpful and knowledgeable at all times without being pushy. We were dealt with by Mark Roper and all times we found that he had our best interest at heart.
We would highly recommend Mark and the team, who were very professional, helpful and knowledgeable and skilfully managed our project at every stage. We would definitely work with them again in the future.
We were keen to install a more sustainable heating system and to benefit from government grants, but were concerned at the number of ‘cowboys’ operating in the sector. We were delighted the willingness of Trusted Energy Solutions to listen to what we needed rather than trying to sell us what was convenient to them. They were very supportive during the somewhat eccentric grant process, and considerate and tidy during the installation process. In summary, we are now warm, and get quarterly cheques from the government for the privilege - what is there not to like?
All the staff at Trusted Energy Solutions have worked hard to help deliver my biomass boiler on time and to suit our needs. They have made the installation smooth and have been helpful and understanding talking me through the process of RHI registration and submitting readings.
We were looking for an alternative to our oil fired heating, which was getting very costly to run, but were unaware as to what the alternatives were. That was until we were referred to Mark Roper who explained everything in detail without any sales pressure at all. We felt we could trust his advice and went ahead with a pv panel installation and a heat source pump for our central heating. Our fuel costs are now much lower and any sign of an oil fired installation has gone! From start to finish the installers were very professional and clearly skilled at what they did. We would have no hesitation at recommending Mark and his company to any interested clients.
Everything went well and apart from Winston the pig getting a bit stressed due to having strangers watching him eat, the disruption was kept to a minimum. The whole installation was completed in a very professional way and the guys were great.
Highly satisfied with the way the installation was conducted and managed; everything went smoothly and the process was made very easy for us by the team. Would definitely recommend Trusted Energy to anyone looking for any products in the future!
I am very pleased with the highly efficient and prompt service I received from the engineers at Trusted Energy; they were thoroughly professional and knowledgeable - Thank you!
We are very pleased with your upgrades to our heating system for our extension. We couldn't have asked for more - your team has excelled themselves.
Huge thanks to you, Mark and the whole team for such a wonderful job - great expertise and support!
