Using the Vent-Axia LoWatt range can reduce electrical consumption, thus reducing the overall carbon footprint.
When using heat recovery ventilation, the heating system requirement is reduced thus potentially saving another 500kg of carbon per annum.
The Kinetic E incorporates: A wholehouse heat recovery system with up to 91% energy efficiency.

Compact size - fits in a 600mm x 300mm kitchen cupboard
An easily accessible heat recovery cube protected by two removable EU3 filters. Two Lo-Carbon Energy Saving EC DC fans ensure long life (typically over double the life of AC motors) and lowest possible energy use. Fully insulated construction with built in condensation drain. Fitted with 125mm spigots. Specifically designed for new build homes with a high level of insulation.
Lo-Carbon Kinetic E meets the latest requirements of the Building Regulations Approved Document F for wholehouse system ventilation: System 4. Continuous mechanical supply and extract with heat recovery.
Both motors are independently adjustable on Normal and Boost speeds to enable optimised commissioning air flows.
The Kinetic E model can be mounted vertically in a roof space, and is suitable for wall mounting or within a kitchen cupboard. When mounted in an unheated area ducting should be insulated. Ducting can be attached to the unit horizonally, vertically or both. Minimum internal depth of kitchen cupboard; 290mm.
Left or right hand installation. The unit is supplied with duct spigots to outside on the right hand side. These can be reversed on-site by simply removing the control panel, rotating the unit 180 degrees and re-attaching the control panel.
Horizontal and vertical spigots: The combination of spigot options allows installation in confined locations. If vertical and horizontal connection is required on the same outlet/inlet, additional spigots can be supplied.
Condensate drain can be taken out through the back, bottom or front of the unit. The final condensate connection is made outside the unit and can be completed after installation.

Supply and install a Kinetic E Wholehouse heat recovery unit as manufactured by:
Vent-Axia Clean Air Systems
Max ventilation rate
130 at 100Pa
N° speed settings
2 (variable between 10% and 100%)
Efficiency: The unit should retain up to 91% of the temperature differential of out going air.
Heat exchanger: should be of a multi plate counter-flow type constructed out of PETG with ultra sonic welded joints.
Motor: should be a Lowatt Energy Saving DC with ball bearings, greased for life. It shall operate up to an ambient temperature of 40°C and be fitted with an electronic thermal overload protective device.
Fan: The fan impeller should be of a backward curved centrifugal type, dynamically balanced.
Controls: The unit should contain an integral driver circuit that provides the unit with a constant airflow volume feature. With provision to connect to remote sensors or switches through two switched live inputs.
Ducting spigots: The unit should provide 125mm ø x 50mm long spigots for all duct connections with vertical and horizontal locations. (Can be converted to flat ducting).
Filter: should be synthetic material tested to minimum of EU3.
Condensation: The outlet provided should offer front, rear and bottom connections external to the unit.
Construction: The unit outer case should be constructed of white ABS. The heat exchanger access doors should give tool-free access to the filters.
Mounting: Vertical, floor or wall mounted, or within kitchen cupboard.
Mains electrical supply: 230VAC 50Hz.
