The Passivhaus Institute has awarded Xpelair’s Natural Air 180 with the Passivhaus Standard.

A Passivhaus certification can be awarded to a building, component or individual that meets the stringent criteria of the standard, which aims to dramatically reduce the requirement for space heating and cooling, while also creating excellent indoor air quality and comfort levels.

As a mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) unit, Natural Air 180 provides an efficient and flexible approach to whole house ventilation. From NOx filtration for optimised safety, through to PIR sensor activity for enhanced efficiency and cold-climate pre-heating, each unit can be customised using Xpelair’s range of ancillaries.

Lee Stones, Product Marketing Manager for Xpelair, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised by the Passivhaus Institute, as Xpelair is dedicated to improving the indoor air quality of buildings and homes across the UK, while also ensuring they are as energy efficient as possible.

“The Passivhaus Standard is further recognition of our dedication to continue to design, engineer and manufacture products that will not only help the UK meet its ambitious carbon reduction targets, but also provide real benefits to the occupants of homes and buildings.”
