Zehnder has provided their ComfoAir 200 ventilation system for Knight’s Place; a sustainable social housing development of 18 one and two-bedroom apartments.
Built with meticulous attention to detail, the two blocks have been designed to strict Passive House standards, which deliver high comfort levels for residents via a mechanical ventilation system with heat revocery (MVHR). Knight's Place is amongst the first multi-residential, certified Passive Housing schemes in the UK.
The Zehnder ComfoAir 200 has low power consumption thanks to EC direct current motors. and has minimal heating requirements and greatly reduced carbon emissions.
Jason Fitzsimmons, Principal Mechanical and Renewable Energy Engineer at Gale & Snowden Architects, said: "While the average unit on the market stands at around 75 to 80 per cent efficiency, Zehnder’s CA200 model offers a 92 per cent MVHR efficiency rate, which is outstanding. This, alongside its compactness, is one of the reasons we selected the unit because, for this type of dwelling, there’s no doubt that it’s the most efficient on the market.”
