Flats achieve Code Level 4

Published:  01 March, 2012

A large apartment development in Richmond has achieved Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes with help from Total Home Environment, which specialises in mechanical ventilation and heat pumps.

Total Home Environment’s Genevex Combi 185 system was installed into the 77 flats to provide ventilation, heating and domestic hot water in an all-in-one integrated appliances. Because of the buildings’ excellent thermal properties, there was no need for an additional heating system.

Genvex Combi uses a 95% efficient counterflow heat exchange and a integrated heat pump to extract heat from outgoing air to heat domestic hot water and incoming air. It can produce about 380 l of hot water a day, storing it in an integral 185 l tank. Maximum airflow is 350 m3/h, providing ventilation with simultaneous heating in living areas of up to 290 m2.
