Jenny and Stephen’s modernising renovation of St Margaret’s Road included the installation of a Ventive passive ventilation and heat recovery system, much more unusual than the more common mechanical ventilation systems. Passive because it has no moving parts, and relies on the natural movement of air.
Jenny continues…‘This renovation was not primarily an eco project. We renovated our house to give us the living spaces we desired for a comfortable family home. However, we were aware of the very low energy efficiency of our 1930s home and wanted the renovations to improve its efficiency, bringing it closer to the energy efficiency of a new build home.’
