Harrogate ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent is celebrating winning the ‘Smart Product of the Year’ award for its energiSava 200 MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) unit with the myenvirovent App in the national Energy Awards 2017.
EnviroVent’s ventilation unit was recognised for its extensive range of features and functionality that give homeowners greater control over a home’s indoor air quality. The app also makes the process of installing and commissioning a unit even simpler and quicker.
Andy Makin, manager director at EnviroVent, said: “We are delighted to have won the Smart Product of the Year in the Energy Awards. A great deal of innovation has gone into developing this unit and the app, which is helping to revolutionise the way that MVHR systems are controlled and commissioned in the home.”
He added: “We were one of the first ventilation manufacturers to release our own App for an MVHR unit and we’ve had a great response from both homeowners and installers. It fits perfectly with the trend towards technology in the home, whilst offering practical benefits and actually adding value to the ventilation experience for the homeowner.”
The energiSava 200 unit has a lightweight, compact design and is extremely energy efficient, making it ideal for small to medium size houses and apartments.
It is extremely versatile and can be fitted on the wall, floor or ceiling. It enables housebuilders to meet System 4 of Building Regulations Part F requirements, improving indoor air quality in a home.
The unit incorporates Intellitrac® Technology, which is a unique humidity tracking control that allows the unit to run continuously on trickle, providing all-year-round healthy indoor air quality in the home.
No user intervention is required, as its intelligent automatic controls constantly monitor the average humidity level. This allows the system to sense any rise in humidity and increase the extract rate in direct correlation to quietly and efficiently control condensation. Once the humidity falls, the extract rate tracks back down again, saving energy.
The myenvirovent app allows the installer to set up the ventilation rates of the energiSava 200 with complete visibility of the unit’s current status at the touch of a button, which saves considerable time on-site. It allows them to connect directly to the unit through the app without the need for a wireless internet connection and to access the dedicated installer mode to commission the airflow rates and select additional options in the unit’s ventilation settings page.
EnviroVent has recently extended its myenvirovent app to its energiSava 250 and 380 units. The app uses a secure connection from the unit through the homeowner’s router, therefore is completely private and cannot be access externally.
The app then allows the MVHR unit to be controlled using an iphone or android device from anywhere in the house. Practical benefits for the homeowner include notifications through the app when filter changes are due and user access to EnviroVent’s technical support team with any questions or queries.
By using the app, homeowners can also access user guides and technical documents and can provide feedback and future product requests to the EnviroVent R&D team.
EnviroVent offers an extensive range of MVHR systems, including the energiSava 200 for small to medium size homes, right through to the energiSava 400 for larger homes.
As a UK manufacturer of ventilation systems, EnviroVent has a factory and distribution centre, located on two separate sites in Harrogate. The company supplies its energy efficient products to UK housebuilders, local authorities and housing associations, as well as homeowners and private landlords.
