Can an HRV Ventilation System filter out the coronavirus, and can it move the virus between rooms in my home?

Your HRV system is a positive pressure ventilation system that takes drier air from your ceiling space, filters it and distributes it into the parts of your home that need it.  Your HRV filter has exclusive filtration technology that helps improve your home’s indoor air quality by filtering out most of the common asthma and allergy triggers, but it will not filter out the coronavirus.  Your system takes air from the ceiling space and so shouldn’t create airflow between rooms.  For any further questions on coronavirus or specific health concerns, we recommend that you contact your Doctor or Ministry of Health help line.

I've just moved into a home with an HRV ventilation system, what do I do?

How much does an HRV ventilation system cost?

Each home is different – in size, environment, inhabitants etc. Which is why we come to you to take moisture and temperature readings, which we then use to determine the best solution for your home.

How does ventilation help to create a more comfortable home?

The HRV home ventilation system installed in your roof space creates positive air pressure in your home to reduce excess moisture. It also helps to improve your home's indoor air quality by filtering most of the common airborne asthma and allergy triggers from the incoming vented air.

Are heat pumps noisy?

The internal wall mounted unit has a fan which is designed to be as quiet as possible during operation.

Can I use my heat pump to cool?

Yes - a heat pump also work as an air conditioner so is a great option to cool your home.

Can a single high wall unit heat multiple rooms in the house?

No, the heat pump should only ever be sized for the room it is in so installing in a hallway to service bedrooms is not recommended.

What’s involved in installing an HRV ventilation system?

Your HRV ventilation system is installed by a local team of friendly, professionally-trained electricians. A new power point may be installed if required to connect it and a certificate of compliance is issued for electrical work. They will find a time that’s convenient with you for installation. Then your installer will also talk you through how to get the perfect home invironment(TM) using your new HRV system.

How do I use Burnt Toast Mode?

Pressing the Burnt Toast Mode button on your control panel switches your system to maximum ventilation for one hour. To return your system to its previous setting before the hour is up, just tap the button again. By forcing air and maximising air movement this can assist with clearing bad smells and clearing excess moisture on walls and windows.

Does the HRV ventilation system come with a warranty?

At installation, your HRV ventilation system is warranted for 5 years against fault (HRV Lite: 3 years). In normal use the system will require a filter change every 24-months (HRV Lite: 12 months). Genuine HRV parts are required as part of the ongoing warranty, and to ensure you continue to get the best performance from your system.
