As you may or may not know, there’s much more to a top-performing MVHR system than the specification stage, the buying and the fitting itself. To make sure the system performs to its optimum level under the specific circumstances, you need to have your new system commissioned which, in this context, means testing and adjusting the system ’til it ticks all the right boxes.

It’s important to make sure your building is adequately ventilated. But it’s also vital to ensure the new ventilation system is suitable, balanced and commissioned properly.

We are qualified to test extraction rates and balance whole-building ventilation systems . It’s a Building Regulations requirement but it’s also vital for making sure the building’s entire ventilation strategy is working as cost effectively as possible.
Commissioning MVHR systems is an expert job requiring a special piece of kit and specified levels of expertise. We have the skills, having passed the relevant qualifications. And we also have the kit. It’s called a hooded anemometer, AKA an air flow meter, and we couldn’t do our job without it.

If, like us, you’re a sucker for great gadgets, here’s some technical information about it.

About our Air Flow meter

  • A compact anemometer kit
  • A built-in flow and temperature vane Ø 100 mm to measure flow speed, volume flow and temperature
  • Unlike some anemometers, the flow volume is shown on the display
  • The duct area is easy-input, so we can get a very accurate volume flow and make correspondingly accurate calculations
  • It’s easy to switch to the current temperature reading, which makes our job faster and more efficient
  • The flow direction, either drawn in or blowing out, is also shown on the display
  • Timed and multi-point mean calculations deliver easy-to-grasp data about the average volume flow and the speed of the flow as well as the temperature readings
  • It’s easy to make accurate measurements at the ventilator grilles and disc outlets
  • We can show the minimum and maximum values in the display
  • We can freeze readings easily, too
  • The gadget recognises the direction of the air flow and measures temperature, flow and flow volume
  • We can easily carry out multi-point and timed mean calculations
  • There’s a display light so we can work easily in dark conditions
  • We can measure the air flow in metres per second or fpm
  • We can measure air flow volume in either m3h, l/s or cfm

Why does all this matter?

If you wouldn’t know an anemometer from a hole in the ground, the main thing is this: it’s the best piece of kit on the market. And we know exactly how to use it to ensure your system is working like a dream; quiet, efficient and, of course, cost-effective.
