    The HRV Summer Kit is an optional accessory that helps cool your warmer rooms, by taking air from the eaves on the cooler side of your home and delivering it where it’s needed via your HRV system’s ducts and ceiling outlets.

    Including an HRV Summer Kit makes using HRV home ventilation in summer even more of a must-have for a well-ventilated home, all year round.

    What does an HRV Summer Kit work with?

    The HRV Summer Kit is an optional extra with the HRV Classic home ventilation system. If you choose the HRV AirSense™ Essential+ or Balanced+ system, then an HRV Summer Kit is included as standard.

    Installing your Summer Kit

    Installing your Summer Kit

    If you decide to include a Summer Kit with your HRV home ventilation system, it will be installed at the same time as your ventilation system. This usually takes just one day but could be longer for large homes or more complex systems.

    On the day, your installers will talk to you about where your control panel and ceiling vents will go, then once installation is complete, they’ll show you how to set and operate your system.

    Optional extras

    Depending on what problems dampness is causing, we might recommend one of our optional extras to install alongside your HRV home ventilation system.
