The Herbert family

Before getting an HRV ventilation system installed in their 1950’s home the Herberts had a big problem with condensation and cold in winter. Installing the Vortex bathroom extractor now means even their bathroom mirror barely steams up after a shower. The HRV Heat Transfer system also helps distribute heat from their fireplace to other cooler parts of the house.

We were very pleased with the window film as it cutts down the uv and some sound. One window had bubbles in it that did not disappear as expected over time. We therefore contacted the supplier and they sent out a experienced team to remove the bubbly film and replace. It was done efficiently and speedily and the window is now perfect with no cost to ourselves for the replacement. Would recommend this product and supplier.

We just bought our first home we was so excited, but once we moved in we noticed the damp window stills the damp air at night when you took a deep breath, we also had a terrible moldy musty smell in the master bedroom, it was so bad we stored all our household goods in the garage, had the house professionally cleaned, but the smell came back, we called Roy from HRV he was great he did a moisture test he explained how a HRV system would change this, so we bought one, it was amazing not only did it take away the dampness and stop the damp window stills it took away the bad odor we also had no water on the inside of our windows in the mornings wow,

being so happy with HRV and now coming into the colder months of winter we rang our trustee HRV Sales agent Roy, he suggested a Heat transfer system, again wow amazing all the kids rooms where now as warm as the lounge, not only did the heat transfer help warm the house we noticed it helped remove dust particles from the busy lounge as it sucked air from the lounge to a filter system before going to the rooms,

So amazed with HRV and our better healthier quality of living we went onto their website to see if there was anything more we may like, we was keen on the water purifier as you never really know whats coming through the pipelines, we liked what we read  so we had this installed through our agent not only do our friends envy our tasty water from all taps on the property our sons eczema has healed up, our house and garden plants are thriving, you really do notice the difference Thanks HRV. 

My partner does night shift and having to try and sleep through the hot days of summer is so unkind when you know you could make life more comfortable for your loved one, After talking with Roy our HRV Agent and now a good friend we had a HRV heat pump installed in the master bedroom far out amazing its so quiet, its perfect, my partner now enjoys longer and more restful sleeps, i also no longer toss and turn at night because of the hot evenings.

we have dedicated this year to making our home a more healthier and comfortable place to live thanks to HRV.

We will spend the next few years paying it off but it was really worth it and the HRV team are awesome they worked hard and got the jobs done fast with no hassles.

we have 5 children and work average jobs, through Roy we made what seemed impossible happen

Thanks Roy your amazing

We called HRV on a late Thursday night and was able to get someone out to speak with us the Friday after my husband finished work. After speaking with Liam our consultant we made the decision to get HRV installed for obvious reason, cleaner air for our baby and because i was over cleaning windows every morning and monitoring the mold that would build every week! Our property is new and for us to deal with this problem we did not think we would have such an issue. That following Monday i got the call i was waiting for from Sarah and we were booked in for 2 weeks from that day which was great i was excited that those windows had 2 weeks to annoy me before it was ALL gone. I asked Sarah if i could be on a cancellation list IF by any chance a spot opened we could be next. Tuesday arrived and what do you know i get a phone call from Sarah again with the best news, HRV will be out on Thursday if i wanted..YES YES YES BOOK ME IN! Thanks Sarah you were lovely to talk to and very helpful. Yesterday was Thursday the day i was waiting for. I cleaned my windows for the last time, mind you VERY happy and excited to clean the windows knowing it will be the last time. I had 2 awesome guys turn up to install the system and it did not take long at all and i was informed on everything carried out. I was showed the key and how it worked and WALLAH! i was all ready. Night crawled on, checking the windows NOPE nothing no wet windows, i am getting a little excited. This morning NO WET WINDOWS!!!! i am amazed how quick it worked and how much of a great sleep i had last night. I can feel the difference in air i am breathing, i noticed my husband did not snore at all last night, and not having his coughing fit he has every morning. My baby slept longer and his allergies seem to have subsided. The house was warmer in the night we did not need to put the heat pump on at all. We were a bit skeptical to get HRV at first thinking its just another thing out there to buy, but we thought what do we have to loose. Since getting it installed i am telling the world how wonderful it is. IT WORKS!!! Thank you soo much to all the team involved, so friendly and helpful.

In our first home we had significant ventilation issues and discovered mould on our new curtains only 3 months after they were put up. We put in an HRV system and this changed the house signifcantly - that room even became the babies room. Since then we have moved twice and in each house we have installed HRV and have never ever regretted it. The place we are in now is 2 storied and it was quite tricky to get the vents in but the team worked hard and once again there is no condensation. Also to note that during renovation the HRV team did wonders fitting the new units and vents at various times to suit the builders and electricians. Even the sales person came and helped at one point. We always love coming home to our warm dry house in winter and of course we sleep better in summer as the house cools with this wonderful system.

Our home is 100% warmer and dryer with our son's health being dramatically better. His asthma is so much easier to control with the HRV system supplying free warm clean filtered air from the ceiling. HRV staff are always helpful with any queries over the phone, and we enjoy their newsletters regarding new technologies to create a healthier home.

When our boy was about 18months old we were taking him to the doctors all the time as he was developing asthma like symptoms. He was placed on an inhaler. We had seen ventilation systems being advertised on TV so thought we would investigate them as we were waking up to extremely wet windows throughout the house every morning. We decided to go ahead with installing the system and were told that we would probably see a change in the wet windows within about 2 weeks. The nest day we check the windows and they were dry. Our sons asthma like symptoms disappeared and never returned. So I am always telling people how good ventilation systems are and that every household should have one. We have lived in 3 different houses over the years and had a ventilation system installed in each one.

I just want to thank Russell and the installation team at HRV Nelson. They did a fantastic job from start to finish. After researching various systems and calling and emailing multiple providers, Russell was the only person to get back to me within 24 hours. He understood what we needed and explained the various options thoroughly - a true professional. The team that came to install were friendly, efficient and knew what they were doing. We had been having problems with a warm lounge due to the wood burner but very cold bedrooms. Since we've installed the system the whole house is now warmer as air is transferred to the colder rooms. We've also noticed a remarkable improvement in the bedroom windows which used to have a lot of condensation on them. If I'd know that the HRV system was going to work so well, I'd have installed it sooner. It has been the best investment that we've made this year.

We got the HRV system put in some years ago as our bedrooms on the South side hardly got sun so that side was pretty damp, after the Installation we noticed a considerable change, 5 years later we decided to get the Heat Transfer system installed to heat up our bedrooms. We closed all the doors to our bedrooms, lit the fire and checked in 2 hours later, you definitely notice the warmth coming from all the rooms now. I'm so glad we decided to get this system.

August 2015 Kevin came to give us a quote and sell the HRV System to us. As it was the end of the winter season, we were unable to gage how effective the system was, however so far this year it has proved to be Amazing, and my life has never been easier. Not having to get up every morning and use two towels to dry all the windows in the house, I think I am made. This has to be the best invention on the face of the earth. The house feels so much drier too. Thanks again heaps for your service, and especially Kevin and the installers.

We recently moved to the Waikato region and after having had HRV installed in our homes in Taranaki and the Bay of Plenty with great success, especially in relation to the removal of condensation, it was a must for us to do the same here. Steve Muhlmann and Johnny( ? surname) did a great and professional job with the installation. We appreciate the advice given about installing an outlet in the garage and are already noticing the benefit there. We highly recommend this system and appreciate the great service support system.

Since installing HRV I have very surprised at how efficient it has been in keeping the house at a much more pleasant temperature throughout the day. Coming into winter I have every confidence that HRV will continue to keep a more even temperature and allow me as an Asthmatic to enjoy life for the better

My wife and I have our had our heating installed now for about 4 years ,and in that time we have found it works well for both of us, my wife likes the warmer temps and I like it cooler and over a period of time we have found a setting that accommodates both of us , also cost wise we have not noticed any difference in fact it may be to our advantage. Thank you HRV for your friendly service and trust it may continue in the future. Yours Sincerely, G & D Palfreyman

We have just finished paying off our HRV and I think it is the best purchase we have made for our house. Over the summer it pumped in cool air at night which made those hot summer nights more bearable. Now that the weather is getting cooler its nice to find the house warm from the heat it has pumped in during the day. The condensation we used to get on our bedroom windows is now also gone.

We put a big HRV system in because we have 3 floors to cover. The height gives us a beautiful view out over the estuary. Views, of course, mean glass and we have a lot of it, including two sets of double sliding doors onto the deck off our main living area.Great in summer, but it took two towels every winter morning to keep them from weeping over the sills onto the carpet.The same applied to the windows in all the bedrooms. We also have a large rumpus room built below ground level. It's a great space but tended to feel damp.Finally, although the main living area was warm, receiving full afternoon sun, the bedroom wing was cold. Since the HRV was installed, all issues have been resolved. Heat from the roof is pumped into the bedrooms and rumpus room.Warmer rooms and dry windows.

We moved into our dream home in 2009. Situated in Rangiora, North Canterbury - the front part of our house was 100 years old, with an added 3 bedroom wing built in the 1980's. We had a mix of different external cladding, internal lath & plaster, gib, wooden and concrete floors. The house felt damp from the outset. I remember the first power bill, due to a very cold winter and pathetic inset log burner was $800.00 for the month! Our first approach was to install good insulation and a log burner. The next, was the installation of a heat pump in the bedroom (children's wing) of the house. The power bills remained very high and the house (especially the bedrooms) very damp. We had mold growing on the kid's shoes, curtains and carpet. The heat-pump worked continuously through the winter with no real change to the air temperature. All of the kids rooms had single glazed windows and ranch sliders. They were saturated with condensation every morning to the extent of puddles appearing in the slider tracks and carpet and window sills... We then looked at installing double glazed windows for all of the 'problem' areas. This was at a cost of around $12,000.00! I was researching condensation and came across HRV. After a meeting and explanation of the 'physics' behind condensation and their system , we were sold. We had the largest system installed, due to the size and length of our house, and waited with anticipation to see it's supposed miracle cure. When we woke in the morning (middle of winter), we were 'gob-smacked' that there was literally NO condensation on the windows. We thought, maybe we were experiencing a balmy winter morning, so waited with anticipation for the next day... We have had NO condensation on our windows from that day!!! Our heat-pump works far more efficiently because it is now heating dry air. Our power bills have dropped significantly and we have even experienced slight cracks in our walls due to the house 'drying out'. The cost to install our large system was way under half what we would have spent on double glazing, which we understand now, would only have disguised our moisture problem.. If anyone is thinking of installing HRV, just DO it! The thing by far that we have ever spent on our home.
