Senior Engineer at Domus Ventilation, considers how to achieve afford ventilation

March 2019

David Treharne, Senior Engineer at Domus Ventilation, considers how to achieve affordable, effective ventilation.

No one likes being in a room that’s dank, breathing in stale air, even for a short period of time. It’s not only unpleasant but it’s also unhealthy for the occupants and for the building itself. Poor indoor air quality has known links to allergies, asthma, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease and even dementia. For the building, surface condensation formed from poor ventilation can lead to significant structural problems and costly redecorating.

Managing indoor air quality
Indoor air quality is determined by a number of factors, including the quality of the outdoor air, indoor pollutant sources (e.g. cleaning equipment), the activities within the property and the physical features of the building.

Whilst outdoor air pollution is largely out of your hands, you can take steps that will improve indoor air quality. The quality of air in a property is, according to Professor Alastair Lewis, National Centre for Atmospheric Science, University of York, “largely a consequence of a series of specific occupant actions coupled to the building air exchange rate, both factors over which individuals have a substantial degree of autonomy and control. In most locations (away from busy roads), outdoor air is likely cleaner than indoor for most classes of air pollution. In such circumstances reducing the indoor emissions of pollutants, for example by changing patterns of discretionary combustion and chemical consumption, may lead to direct reductions in exposure, as can actions that increase ventilation.”

In light commercial settings, kitchens and bathrooms are usually the most affected areas, but buildings with bin stores, communal areas and even meeting rooms can also be problematic.

Extract fans: the simple solution
Mechanical extract fans designed for the commercial market can be effective here, depending on the size of the area and the level of contaminants and moisture in the air.

Getting the balance between fan performance and noise levels is important so look for a fan with a high efficiency impeller and external rotor motor that also operates quietly to avoid disturbing occupants; Domus Ventilation D SERIES fans operate up to 530l/s or 1908m3/hr and with sound levels as low as 31dBA.

Minimise energy consumption by opting for fans with an economy speed setting and also look for those that can be used with a range of sensors such as PIR, humidity and a run-on timer so you are not restricted to just one option. Where you have a number of fans in place, a speed controller that connects to multiple fans is very useful.

Although harder to find, fans are available – including the Domus Ventilation D SERIES – that feature Supply and Extract technology so not only can you use the fan to extract stale air but also to feed in air from outside.

Mechanical Extract Ventilation: the next step up
Whilst motorised extractor fans are ideal for dealing with ventilation in well-defined areas (mostly single rooms), there are many occasions where a more sophisticated and powerful solution is required, especially where there are multiple rooms in need of extract ventilation and the air change requirement is more onerous, e.g. in shared accommodation such as student flats or care homes. Here, a Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) system should be considered.

An MEV system actively extracts air from ‘wet rooms’ (kitchens, bathrooms, utility spaces) via ducting to a central ventilation unit which further ducts to an exhaust point. The systems are typically dual speed, providing low speed continuous trickle ventilation and high-speed boost flow. Replacement fresh air is drawn into the property via background ventilators located in the habitable rooms and through air leakage.

MEV systems are most suitable for new properties although can be retrofitted as long as there is access in ceiling voids for duct runs.

MEV systems provide excellent ventilation, are very easy to use (mostly a fit and forget scenario as they don’t have filters that need changing), are cost-effective in terms of capital outlay and operating costs and are straight forward to install. On the installation side, MEV systems require minimal ducting and do not require each room’s outer wall to be drilled for an extract fan – even more handy if wet rooms don’t have access to an outer wall.

There are a wide range of MEV units in the marketplace to choose from. When looking at suitable units, firstly ensure it has been designed for the commercial market, as residential MEV units will not be powerful enough. Domus Ventilation’s CMX-S, for example, can extract up to 120l/s.

Consider where the MEV unit is going. Generally, they are fitted in lofts or cupboards but if that isn’t an option then opt for a smaller unit that can fit in a ceiling void, such as Domus Ventilation’s CMX-S which is the only unit on the market at just 125mm deep. Also look for units with a versatile design that allow them to be installed horizontally or vertically, ensuring ease of installation in limited or awkward spaces.

As is the case with extract fans, you want to ensure maximum performance with minimal noise. To achieve this the MEV unit needs a good quality Electronically Commutated (EC) motor plus, ideally, direct connection to the ducting (without the need for adaptors) which maximises airflow performance as well as significantly reduces system noise. A low Specific Fan Power (SFP) is also ideal to keep energy usage down to a minimum; Domus Ventilation’s CMX-S has an SFP of 0.24W(l/s), well below the 2010 Building Regulations Part L threshold.

Whilst MEV systems operate continuously, those that have a high-speed boost flow come with a variety of control options for you to consider with the most common being a straightforward switch; a combined PIR sensor and timer which detects the presence of someone; a combined humidity sensor and timer; and the increasingly popular integral humidistat that identifies changes in humidity and automatically adjusts the air flow of the unit accordingly.

Ventilation for all
A stuffy room is the direct effect of poor ventilation; it’s uncomfortable to be in and can affect the health of the occupant. Mechanical ventilation is necessary to maintain a healthy, breathable atmosphere, but doesn’t have to cost customers the earth or be difficult or complex for you to install.

Domus Ventilation Appoints Shane Leather National Specification Sales Manager

March 2019

Shane’s appointment to this post forms part of our strategy to return to the specification sector following the launch of a range of high performance mechanical ventilation systems over the past six months. These include the HRXE Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) unit and the highly energy-efficient CMX Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) units, which boasts the best Specific Fan Power (SFP) on the market.

A key part of Shane’s role as National Specification Sales Manager is to reintroduce M&C Consultants and specifiers to Domus Ventilation – and advise on the most suitable and compliant mechanical ventilation system for a project. Shane’s 23 years experience working across the breadth of the HVAC sector - from air handling units and curtains to pumps and ducting - has put him in good stead for this role.

Prior to joining Domus, Shane was Regional Sales Manager for London and the South East at Armstrong Fluid Technology, selling into specifiers and contractors. This all round experience made him an ideal candidate for this newly established role of National Specification Sales Manager.

For Shane, moving to Domus Ventilation represented a challenge that he was keen to embrace: “Domus Ventilation has undergone a number of changes over recent years, including a name change and a move away from specification to focus on the installer and merchant channels. Being absent from the specifier sector for some time essentially means I have the opportunity to build this side of the business from scratch and that’s an exciting proposition. The product range is attractive to specifiers and contractors alike and the company has been working to put in place support for the specification sector. So it’s a challenge, but that’s what interests me! It’s about re-awakening of the Domus Ventilation name.”

Shane has certainly been busy since joining the team, re-establishing contact with former specification customers and with his own contacts developed over the years, which has already born fruit; he is currently working on a number of specification projects. In addition, Shane has written a presentation which has been submitted to CIBSE for CPD accreditation, which is expected shortly.

Supporting the re-entry into the specification sector, Domus Ventilation’s in-house Technical Department is providing free technical and design services, all products have been uploaded to the BIM library and a new 108 page Specification Guide has been released.
