Comfort 600 and CT150 Install into 600 m/2 Sussex Home NILAN UK were appointed by a builder of large scale country homes (Edenbriar Ltd) to provide MVHR to this 600m/2 Low Energy Family home in Sussex. Due to the layout it was agreed that the easier option would be to provide two correctly sized units to service each end of the home. The ductwork is a hybrid system of rigid metal spiral and 75mm semi rigid radial ducting. Some of the ductwork is installed into the insulation prior to the Underfloor Heating and Screed being installed, in this case to avoid the many steels spanning the somewhat immense Lounge/Kitchen/Entertaining Area. The supply air then terminates in floor boxes with a brushed aluminium grille to finish. Our smallest Passive House Approved unit (CT150 185m3/hr duty) was employed to the Annexe part of the house servicing a bedroom and en-suite area and also the large office above the 3 vehicle garage. In the larger portion of the house the unit chosen was the Comfort 600 (600m3/hr) simply due to the high duty rate required by the large open plan spaces. 24 ECOBUILDER - THE SPECIFIER SPRING 2018 All units have integral control for humidity and Co2. Should the house be full of people at a party for instance the unit will adjust its fan speed automatically to bring down the Co2 levels. This is in addition to our standard 7 day programmer.
