Heat transfer and heat recovery systems

Heat transfer

Circulate warm air through your whole house

Heat transfer systems take excess heat from one room and distribute it to other rooms in your home to provide a more even temperature throughout.

An ideal scenario for heat transfer is in an older home with a wood fire in the lounge providing the only heat. The lounge will be delightfully warm (sometimes too warm!) while the bedrooms are freezing. A heat transfer system can move the surplus heat from the lounge and transfer it to the bedrooms.

You can turn the system on and off from a touch screen, and a ceiling vent in each room can be adjusted to increase or decrease air flow.  You can also add a summer vent kit to draw outside air in through a grille in the soffit and circulate the fresher air throughout your home through the heat transfer ducting.

Heat recovery

A breath of fresh air for your home

In modern homes that are built to be almost airtight for more efficient heating, a lack of natural ventilation can lead to poor air quality.

A heat recovery system will continuously extract moist, stale air from all the “wet” rooms in your house (kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry) and deliver filtered fresh air to your living rooms and bedrooms without letting the heat escape.

Traditional extraction systems do this too, but a heat recovery system does more. As its name suggests, it can collect heat from the extracted air and transfer it back into the room along with the fresh air from outside.

The two airflows pass one another within the heat recovery unit without mixing, and once its heat has been extracted the stale air is ejected to the outside.

The Zehnder system

We use premium Zehnder heat-recovery systems, which operate in a winter and summer mode. In winter the heat from the exhaust air is recovered and pre-heats the incoming fresh air, while in summer mode, the air bypasses the heat exchanger so the incoming air is cooler.

A heat recovery system works independently of your normal heating system but can help keep you warmer in winter by replacing stale moist air with fresh dry air. Dry air feels warmer and is easier to heat.

A heat recovery system will make your home or business more comfortable by:

  • reducing dust and pollen, which are collected by a filter in the system
  • reducing moisture, condensation, and cooking smells, which in turn reduces the risk of damp and mould
  • greatly reducing energy consumption

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
