Titon’s ultra efficient ventilation at Liverpool housing development - Sep 2010

Titon’s HRV1 Q Plus whole house ventilation units are being installed in 164 houses and bungalows in a Bellway development of private and affordable housing in Edge Hill, Liverpool.  The ultra efficient ventilation units (with heat recovery) have efficiencies of up to 91% and are helping all the houses on the development comply with Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.  Titon also supplied all the ventilation ducting for the development.

Titon’s HRV1 Q Plus is one of the most efficient whole house ventilation (with heat recovery) units of its size in the UK and has been independently tested by the BRE and is EST Best Practice compliant.  Thanks to its discreet but revolutionary design, the unit offers the kind of performance that up until now has only been available from much larger and more costly products.

Measuring just 600mm x 430mm x 285mm its size belies its performance – the HRV1 Q Plus is suitable for properties with a kitchen and up to five additional wet rooms, but is predominantly aimed at applications where space is at a premium.   Designed and manufactured in the UK with the architect, developer and contractor in mind, its small size makes it easier to fit where space is limited, for example in flats.

The Titon HRV1 Q Plus also helps to maximise performance via SAP Appendix Q, thanks to the market leading combination of very low power consumption and a highly efficient heat exchanger (up to 91%).  First showcased in the Eco House at Interbuild, the technical specifications can be accessed by clicking here and the performance figures from www.sap-appendixq.org.uk.
