Live and breathe the difference

To meet UK carbon budgets the regulatory framework within which we operate continues to tighten the performance criteria for ventilation products and systems. The 2010 Building Regulations are just the next of a number of points that plot the path to a zero carbon goal for the UK. Legislative pressures will therefore continue to build in the years ahead and increase the demand for equipment and technologies to be specified and sold which raise the bar in terms of both energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions.

From my perspective, it’s at times like these when the top manufacturers in the sector must raise their game and provide the product, sales and technical support you need to succeed. And, as the UK’s premier domestic, commercial, and industrial ventilation company, that’s precisely what Vent-Axia strives to achieve.

Investing in the UK

Employing over 800 people across 4 manufacturing sites, we continue to invest in

UK manufacturing. Being in control of manufacturing the component parts including motors and mouldings all within the UK, we reduce our lead times as well as our carbon footprint.

Motors

The classic division of electric motors has been that of Alternating Current (AC) types vs Direct Current (DC) types. The majority of motors used in the UK are of 50

Hz A.C. type wound for 220/240 volts single phase or 380/440v three phase.

The DC motor, however is becoming more common as it is more energy efficient and longer lasting, (70,000 hours as against 20,000 for the AC type). Vent-Axia’s

Lo-Carbon range all use the LoWatt DC motors offering up to 90% energy savings and longer life.

At Vent-Axia, we have been designing and manufacturing ventilation solutions for housing refurbishment for over 50 years. As a market leader in solutions for the social housing sector we continue to drive innovation into our products.

We have introduced many new models which expand upon our traditional, well-proven products as well as broadening our capabilities further with a whole host of innovations in Vent-Axia Lo-Carbon™ and energy reducing ventilation solutions.

Mouldings

High grade ABS (Thermoplastic) is used to manufacture the Vent-Axia fan range.

The antistatic properties minimises the need for cleaning whilst the strength and rigidity of the material means the whole range can be mounted on any surface

(smooth or rough) and still maintain effective operation.

With the Decent Home Programme helping to bring housing stock up to date, we now understand more about building performance than ever before. As the stock continues to be improved, we can now develop sympathetic ventilation systems which are designed to fit in our buildings and also with the way we live our lives. The new range of decentralised ventilation systems from Vent-Axia fit discretely into our homes and provide near silent, energy efficient ventilation in a more comfortable way.

As well as a high degree of strength, the fans are resistant to aqueous acids, alkalis, concentrated hydrochloric and phosphoric acids, alcohols, and animal, vegetable and mineral oils making them ideal for kitchen and bathroom environments. This all ensures the fans are not only robust, but will continue to operate and look their best for a long time to come.

Manufacturing

Swindon

Key provider of our LoWatt DC Motor, manufacturing over 1 million motors for the

HVAC market every year from the 80,000 sq ft factory.

These additions reflect changes to Building Regulations, since Part F and Part L now favour continuous ventilation because it performs better in SAP, is easier to specify and easier to standardise, as trickle vents are not required. It is likely that these factors, along with the Dwelling Emission Rate (DER) benefits of SAP Appendix Q will combine to boost the adoption of both whole house Mechanical Extract Ventilation systems (MEV and dMEV) and Mechanical Extract Ventilation systems with Heat

Recovery (MVHR).

At Vent-Axia we have a history of innovation. When you look at our heritage, it soon becomes clear why we have been the First name in Ventilation since our inception

1936 – Marine engineer Joe Akester invented the unitary extractor fan ‘Silent 6’ made from Bakelite material. The original products featured DC motors.

1945

– Following the Second World War, Sir Winston Churchill bought two Silent 6 fans for his Chartwell home. A copy of the cheque for £28.19s 8p is in Vent-Axia’s reception area at Crawley.

1953 – The ‘X type’ fan was produced in 4 sizes and the unique ‘R type’ controller enabled the fans to be reversed for the first time.

1961

– Vent-Axia Standard Range was launched and applications became more varied with the first dedicated models for roof and wall mounting and even a model for commercial and military vehicles.

1975 – The Universal fan range featured the first ‘centrifugal’ shutter mechanism that allowed the shutters to operate in both directions without pull-cords.

1985

– The T Series’ product range featured a patented DC solenoid shutter and offered unique applications like In-Line and Dark Room models. Accessories like the Direct Mount Spigot and wall terminations also enabled the fans to be used with ducting as a complete installation kit.

1985

– Vent-Axia was the first, (in fact the only) fan company to be awarded the Royal Warrant by the

Queen for supplying unit ventilation to Royal Households.

1992 – The 16th edition of IEE regulations ‘on site guide’ was issued and Vent-Axia launched the first

Safety Extra Low Voltage fan to meet the requirements for electrical safety in bathrooms.

1994 – The patented LuminAir became the first fan and light combination and its IP57 protection made the unit electrically safe for shower installation.

1997 – Domestic energy efficient ventilation began with the launch of the LoWatt range featuring a DC motor and patented shutter system that used no additional power.

2002 - Commercial fans became energy efficient with LoWatt T Series launched at Interbuild in

Birmingham.

2006

– The Sentinel range was developed as the first ‘demand’ ventilation system with energy efficient

EC/DC motors.

2007 – Vent-Axia launched the first complete Lo-Carbon ventilation range featuring Residential Fans,

MEV, MVHR and Commercial Energy Efficient products.

2008

– As part of the Sentinel family, Totus Demand Energy Recovery became the first low energy commercial ventilation system with a 90% efficient energy recovery and EC/DC motor.

2009 – Sentinel Kinetic becomes the first Lo-Carbon product with 90% heat recovery and cooker hood facility.

Continuous

Ventila

tion

The Benefits

Traditional intermittent ventilation systems often provide peaks of high extract airflow which exceed the natural infiltration rates, this means we are simply warming indoor air and extracting it to atmosphere which is hardly energy efficient. This is shown below as the graph indicates the natural air change rate from a building with a leakage rate of 10m 3hm 2 @50pa.

4

The new systems from Vent-Axia are designed to work with the natural air infiltration and control the air path from the building thus preventing migration of damaging humidity and pollutants. This is achieved by using continuous low speed running extract fans in the wet rooms (bathrooms, kitchen and utility rooms) with a boost via the light switch, an integral pullcord or sensor when higher ventilation rates are required.

By providing ventilation in this way the extract systems can run at a much lower rate all the time, rather than at a high rate for 1 or 2 hours a day.

This has a range of benefits including:

Energy Efficiency – No over ventilation, so reducing unnecessary heat loss

Near Silent Ventilation – Low speeds mean very low noise levels

No trickle vents needed – The low rates mean that adequate replacement air is available naturally.

What is de-centralised MEV (dMEV)

The Building Regulations Part F gives examples of four main methods of ventilation. System 3,

Continuous mechanical extract ventilation can be achieved using a single centralised extract unit such as the Sentinel Multivent ducted from

‘wet’ rooms (kitchen, bathroom, en-suite and

WC) or by decentralised individual fans in the

‘wet’ rooms. The fans run continuously at near silent levels providing a simple and effective form of ventilation.

Lo-Carbon Centra HT (Humidistat/Timer)

For bathroom/toilet applications, the continuous running HT model is automatically boosted by the built-in humidistat or by a switched live input which activates the timer

Vent-Axia have two versions of a positive pressure unit, one for loft mounting and a compact version for properties without loft space that can be discreetly mounted in a number of locations. This entire design is a result of close consultation with the public sector authorities. This valuable feedback has resulted in special attention to key design features such as robust construction, longer life filters, user friendly operation, reliable controls and wiring flexibility. Both versions can be used for air replacement in conjunction with an extract fan.

PoziDry

*Running for 23 hours on trickle and 1hour on boost

For controlling condensation particularly in the refurbishment sector, the Vent-Axia PoziDry offers a quick and simple solution. An out of sight loft mounted positive input fan draws in fresh air from the atmosphere, filters it and pushes it through a ceiling mounted diffuser normally located over the main stairwell of a two story dwelling or in the main hall of a bungalow.

PoziDry Compact

For those properties that do not have a loft, LoWatt PoziDry

Compact provides an easy to install solution. The wall mounted unit that can be fitted in a number of locations around a single floor flat or apartment.

Air is drawn into the PoziDry Compact unit via an external inlet and through a short length of duct. The specially developed fan/motor assembly (using the LoWatt DC motor technology) draws the air through an integral, high capacity, washable filter. The backward curved impeller guarantees increased efficiency, lower sound levels and better performance.

The fresh, filtered airflow passes along the ducting and terminates on an internal wall with a discreet grille. This directs the airflow upwards where the incoming air mixes with the warm air that gathers at ceiling height.

The system automatically provides fresh, tempered airflow into the home.

There is minimal power consumption and costs as little as one penny a day to run. Creating an environment where the damaging effects of condensation find it hard to exist, benefits both the occupants and the structure of the home.

Heat Pumps

Vent-Axia unveils heat pump products

The Daikin Altherma product range, available from Vent Axia, will feature a selection of air source heat pumps including single and three-phase split systems from 6-16kW. All split systems comprise separate indoor and outdoor units, with the indoor units available as either heating only or heating and cooling options.

Vent-Axia will also offer a monobloc version, in which all the hydraulic parts are located within the outdoor unit of the air source heat pump. In this system the water pipes - rather than refrigerant lines - run indoors from the outdoor unit, making installation much quicker and easier for the domestic installer.

The monobloc unit is available in both single and three-phase from 11-16kW.

A high temperature air source heat pump completes the range now available from

Vent-Axia. Available in single and threephase from 11-16kW, the unit features unique cascade technology that can heat water temperature up to 80°C without needing an electric heater to boost the temperature. The high temperature system is capable of delivering heating and hot water, as a direct replacement for a traditional boiler, without the expense of changing the existing radiators.

“At Vent-Axia we recognise the importance of embracing renewable energy technology to tackle climate change and maintain secure energy supplies. Our range of heat pumps consists of both air source and ground source products to ensure specifiers and installers have the correct solution for each individual project,” explains Richard Paine,

Product Marketing Manager.

“Vent-Axia currently supplies many Lo-

Carbon™ products; our heat pump range will complement existing products such as the Sentinel Kinetic as part of a whole house package of measures designed to reduce energy consumption for the homeowner.”

The introduction of renewable energy products combined with the innovative

Lo-Carbon™ ventilation range will offer specifiers and contractors unrivalled access to extensive technical advice and expertise.

Vent-Axia’s aim will be to deliver low building energy consumption and work towards lowering carbon emissions.

Vent-Axia’s Thernamic™ ground source heat pumps are designed to provide space heating and domestic hot water. The product range includes single phase units from 4-

24KW and three phase units from 4–30KW.

A high temperature series is also available from 4-20KW which is capable of heating at temperatures up to 65 °C negating the need to use direct acting emersion heater whilst still meeting the cylinder pasteurization temperatures.

A range of commercial units are also available in three phase from 20-75KW and are capable of bolting together to provide higher system capacities.

To provide a comprehensive package for specifiers and installers Vent-Axia will provide all the accessories that are required for the installation of its ground source heat pumps.

This includes manifolds, ground collectors, cylinders, buffer vessels and glycol.

All the Vent-Axia Thernamic™ products will be MCS accredited and eligible for the RHI payments when the scheme is launched in

April 2011. The scheme looks to radically change the way that renewable heat sources will be funded. All heat pump installations from 15th July 2009 are eligible to receive this funding, provided the products are MCS registered and installed by an accredited

MCS engineer.

Further information on Vent-Axia’s

Thernamic™ range of heat pump products will be available at www.vent-axia.com shortly.

Case Studies

Vent-Axia’s ultra-quiet solution is the key to cost and carbon cutting for Magna West Somerset Housing Association

Near-silent, continuous running ventilation from Vent-Axia, the market leader in low carbon ventilation, is helping one housing association in the West

Country make across the board improvements to its tenanted housing stock. Vent-Axia’s ground-breaking Lo-Carbon™ Centra and Quadra fans, combined with Freshvent 100 natural ventilation technology, are enabling the

Magna West Somerset Housing Association to make dramatic savings on maintenance costs, cut carbon emissions and simplify product specification and installation whilst improving living conditions and reducing fuel bills for tenants.

Based in Williton, near Taunton, the Magna West Somerset Housing

Association is responsible for 2,200 properties, comprising a mixture of one, two, three and four bedroom flats, houses, bungalows and sheltered schemes.

Having worked with Vent-Axia for a number of years, the organisation had always rated the company’s ventilation products highly for their performance, reliability, and cost effective installation. But fuel poverty issues in a number of properties were creating condensation problems leading to rising maintenance costs. The Association’s Contracts Manager, Sean Thompson, takes up the story.

“We operate in an area with a very high level of fuel poverty. One of our biggest problems is condensation and mould growth caused by residents turning off the extract fans at the isolator because of the running cost and the operating noise of the fans.”

The Association co-operated closely with Vent-Axia to resolve these issues, resulting in an ongoing ventilation refit programme for its properties. Old intermittent fans in kitchen and bathroom areas are being replaced by new continuous running Lo-Carbon™ Centra and Quadra products to provide an ultra-quiet, energy efficient and easy to fit alternative, supported by Freshvent

100 natural ventilation. and utility rooms, so social housing specifiers only require one fan type for any dwelling. Vent-Axia’s Quadra is a domestic fan suited to through-the-wall or ducted applications. Also designed for quick and straightforward installation in multiple rooms, Quadra provides a guaranteed installed performance thanks to an innovative switch ’n fit feature in the fan. It offers a range of advanced control options to boost efficiency, and ease installation and commissioning. Both fans incorporate energy saving Vent-Axia Lo-Carbon™

DC motors, bringing up to an 90% reduction in fuel consumption over traditional AC fans.

Freshvent 100 is a range of passive ventilators for use with positive pressure ventilation. These ventilators provide an important outlet for air circulating around the house. Stale air is expelled through the unit to the outside without letting in noise and draughts.

“Thanks to Vent-Axia, we are seeing a positive reduction in condensation and associated health and property maintenance problems” says Sean.

“There are important additional benefits too. The versatility of the Centra and Quadra fans has helped us to rationalise our stock. We now fit these units in all applications. They’ve allowed us to reduce the stockholding for our electrical contracting teams, enabling us to improve our service to our residents”.

Unlike traditional intermittent fans, continuous ventilation systems work with the natural air infiltration to prevent the migration of damaging humidity and pollutants. This is achieved through continuous running, low speed extract fans in the wet rooms with a boost via the light switch, an integral pull cord or sensor when higher ventilation rates are required. Systems can thus run near silently at a much lower rate all the time, rather than at a noisy, high rate for one or two hours a day.

Both Centra and Quadra are part of Vent-Axia’s Lo-Carbon™ collection. The aim of the Lo-Carbon initiative is to offer the latest low carbon ventilation technology in order to reduce building energy consumption and so carbon emissions. For further information on all products and services offered by Vent-

Axia telephone 0844 856 0590 or visit www.vent-axia.com.

Ideal for retrofitting, Vent-Axia’s Lo-Carbon™ Centra offers virtually noiseless operation in a fresh design which fits discreetly and easily into any home. It offers trickle ventilation and includes a boost feature which can be utilised as necessary based on specific room requirements. Adjustable ‘Normal’ running speeds make it suitable for continuous extract in kitchens, bathrooms, en-suites
