Today’s buildings are energy efficient, well-insulated but often lacking in fresh air. Get fresh air for your building or business premises.

Ventilation Systems

Is your home or workplace overly stuffy and constricted? Do people in your building complain of headaches and tiredness? Is your only source of ventilation opening windows, even in winter?

Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) solutions from TFM Services play a significant role in creating a better climate by providing a continuous and adequate supply of fresh air.

With the facility to provide heating, cooling and humidifying, you’ll have unparalleled control over your internal environment whilst greatly decreasing carbon emissions and cutting the cost of your electricity and heating bills.

Low operational sound levels, dust prevention systems and two ‘fresh up’ modes that keep air quality consistent, are just some of the benefits you will receive when installing our HRV systems.

If you’re looking for a solution that will improve the indoor experience for everyone who uses your building, contact TFM Services today to arrange a quote.

Types of Ventilation Systems

VAV Systems

Variable Air Volume (VAV) helps to regulate the volume of air that is released within a certain area. VAV systems control the volume of air, not the temperature, but work to supply a consistent air temperature.

Commonly, VAV systems are installed alongside other air conditioning systems further control over air flow. VAV systems are also very energy efficient, if you’re looking to save some money along the way.

Variable air volume systems work differently to HVAC systems, which have a slightly opposite way of operating, by producing a constant volume but HVAC systems have the ability to vary the temperature, as opposed to the volume of air.

Duct Installation and Ductwork

As part of a ventilation system, you’ll find Ductwork. Ductwork forms part of a ventilation systems and works to distribute the air through the heating, venting and air con systems. Regardless of the weather outside, the Ductwork’s job is to ensure the air inside of your commercial property is fresh.

Ductworks are silent workers and can be found connected to HVAC systems. If you imagine the HVAC system is the heart of your heating and ventilation system, Ductwork can be described as the veins, keeping the fresh air supply running smoothly throughout the system and into your premises.

Extract Systems

If you’re a restaurant, you should have an extract system and ventilation installed within the kitchen. The ventilation systems work to remove the negative air particles that are released from gases and foods; this is then replaced with fresh, clean air.

This type of ventilation system is especially important for these types of commercial premises who are exposed to large amounts of negative air particles daily, from steam, cooked foods and gases. Although in domestic cases we have an extractor fan above our cookers to remove these particles, a more sophisticated ventilation system is necessary for commercial kitchens.

Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV)

Heat recovery ventilation systems help to create a healthier living and working environment by filtering air to reduce airborne bacteria, dust and pollen levels. Improved indoor air quality as well as preventing mould and condensation can also aid concentration and reduce fatigue.

As well as contributing to a reduction in carbon emissions, HRV systems also help to reduce your energy usage by recovering heat lost on cold days and controlling the circulation of filtered outdoor air on warmer days.

Ventilation FAQs

While many modern buildings are designed to be near airtight meaning better insulation and energy efficiency, this can also result in little to no natural airflow.

A lack of fresh air inside a building can cause excess humidity and an accumulation of bacteria and allergens, creating a stale and stuffy environment. In order to look after the health of your family and workforce, a steady circulation of clean air is required.

Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems from TFM address these problems by combining ventilation, humidification and filtration, not to mention the added benefits of energy recovery and efficient air processing.

A heat recovery ventilator works by drawing in stale air from inside the building and replacing it with fresh air from outside. To maintain comfortable temperatures and air quality, the amount of stale air being removed is equal to the amount of fresh air being supplied.

When the air from inside and outside your building are exchanged within the system, a heat transfer process occurs so that the clean air supplied to your home is not only fresh but also maintains the temperature within your building. Without this transfer process, the heat from the internal air would be lost, hence the term ‘heat recovery’.

The process of removing air from your home or commercial building and replacing it with the fresh outside air happens simultaneously, but the two air streams never mix, therefore avoiding contamination.

Ventilation is a key requirement for most businesses. It is important that your business or place of work has a good air flow, whether it’s an office, shop, dental practice or gym, ventilation is imperative to the health and safety of both your staff and the general public.

Ventilation systems work by extracting stale air from a building while allowing fresh clean air to enter from outside. This improves overall air quality by ensuring there is a flow of fresh air coming into your work place.

Although there haven’t been any changes in legislation to the use of air conditioning units in regards to Covid-19, it is still a legal requirement for business owners to make sure that there is an ample supply of air circulating through their business.

If you’re unsure about the ventilation in your commercial premises, official information can be found from The HSE or feel free to contact our ventilation engineers for further advice on whether or not your heating and ventilation systems may require a maintenance check.

Having clean indoor air is key to a healthy lifestyle; it can help to improve concentration, mood and reduce the chances of developing lung, heart and arterial diseases.

This is why it’s important to make sure there’s a regular flow of clean fresh air flowing through your work place. This constant supply of clean air is especially important for those businesses that operate in a larger space, such as a factory or large office and are unable to open windows or doors to help ventilate an area.
