Chapter 3.2 NHBC Guidelines on Heat Recovery

With focus on Design, Material Selection, Installation and Handover, the NHBC Guidelines on Heat Recovery Ventilation push further focus on Guaranteed Installed Performance (G.I.P) and link all parts of the chain to enable this to be achieved simply and effectively.

The document brings key aspects from the Domestic Ventilation Compliance Guide which was released as a secondary document to Part F of the Building Regulations in 2010 as well as introducing new requirements such as location of Heat Recovery Unit, Controls and maintenance aspects such as cleanable ducting.
