Getting MVHR right (or how NOT to do it!)

This MVHR installation was installed by a company recommended by the supplier!

Sadly, this was never going to work as expected.

We were contacted as the home owner was complaining of the following issues:

Main concerns were:-

  • Health - black mould in the cupboard on the flimsy ducts
  • Discomfort from strong or cold draughts
  • Noise - how can we mitigate?
  • Unfortunately, the renovation was complete and the hideous workmanship was not accessible without ripping down ceilings and smashing out newly decorated walls.
