Titon Achieves Passivhaus Accreditation - March 2018
Titon are pleased to announce they have achieved Passivhaus accreditation for its HRV3 PH ECOaura MVHR unit. The new HRV3 PH ECOaura unit combined with the new aura-t™ touchscreen controller demonstrates Titon’s commitment to providing good indoor air quality and efficient energy performance within a building.
By achieving Passivhaus accreditation it confirms Titon’s ability to demonstrate high quality products that can offer extra value within the home. With issues constantly arising in the news about bad indoor air quality and the government’s commitment to improving standards it was only natural for Titon to develop its products, demonstrating its high standards as a UK manufacturer.
Commenting on the achievement, Shaun Horn-Critchlow, Director of International Sales at Titon, said:
The new version of the HRV3 PH ECOaura has been developed to fulfil increasing market demand for Passivhaus requirements – both across Europe and the UK, where there is also a growing interest, especially in the self-build sector. The addition of the duct heater to this unit was crucial to successfully meet the high standards and criteria of Passivhaus testing, particularly saving energy within a home. This Passivhaus accreditation will undoubtedly see the HRV3 PH ECOaura become increasingly popular among architects, mechanical engineers, contractors, local authorities and homeowners alike.
The HRV3 PH ECOaura is a modified design of Titon’s existing HRV3 Q Plus Eco unit, with the main addition being a new duct heater as featured during testing. This ensures that cold air does not return into the system ensuring balanced ventilation at low temperatures, if not then the cold supply must be reduced to prevent freezing, preventing any moisture in the stale extracted air from freezing. In turn, this eliminates any risk of the heat cell freezing and stopping the unit from working. As a result, the ventilation system can run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even if the temperature drops down to -15ºC.
Furthermore, the HRV3 PH ECOaura offers a 100% airflow diverting Summer Bypass and also includes intelligent humidity options, while the Passivhaus versions can be fitted with either Titon’s aura-t™ touchscreen or the aurastat® VT controllers.
