Optiheat are qualified installers of MVHR

Optiheat are Nuaire approved installers of their ventilation systems for new build or retrofit solutions.

Check out the case studies of the four code 5 houses in Thurlestone Devon that Optiheat installed nuaire MVHR into.


Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems will quietly and efficiently provide your home in Devon or Cornwall with warmth when required, and fresh, filtered air all year round, improving the indoor air quality and reducing dust and allergen levels.

Government legislation and building requirements require that new homes are built with very low leakage rates, making them more energy-efficient. More air-tight construction methods can result in poor indoor air quality as condensation and pollutants generated from cooking, cleaning, washing and bathing remain trapped inside the home. Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, or MVHR, offers year-round, whole home ventilation that will remove condensation and pollutants, improving the indoor air quality, whilst recovering the heat that would otherwise be lost outside.

A proven low-energy and highly efficient ventilation method, MVHR is fast becoming the most common method of whole home ventilation for new build properties. MVHR systems work by combining supply and extract in one unit. Moisture-laden, stale air is extracted from ‘wet’ areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms. The heat from this stale air is recovered via a heat exchanger, and this tempered air delivered into the living areas of the home.

Installing an MVHR system will help you to achieve a high score in SAP Q, and to comply with Building Regulations Part F & L. Optiheat works closely with Nuaire to offer the widest range of MVHR systems available in the UK, designed to suit every size and type of property, from small apartments to homes with up to seven wet rooms. Optiheat can provide homes in the South Hams, South Devon and throughout Devon with the MVHR systems. MVHR system benefits include:

    Very low noise levels – essential as MVHR systems are constant-running
    Options to suit all property sizes and types, saving you space and money
    Compact, lightweight and easy to install
    Fan controls designed for quick and easy commissioning
    Full design and solution package available
    5 year warranty for peace of mind
    Options for summer bypass and integral frost protection
