A Zehnder Q350 has been carefully self-installed in a 100-year old cottage undergoing a deep retrofit in the leafy Cheshire countryside. MVHR systems are not exclusively for new build homes, but can be carefully designed and installed at low cost into very old homes in order to protect the building fabric from moisture damage and provide healthy, clean air for occupants.
