Mitsubishi Electric has launched a range of Lossnay Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems aimed at the residential market. The addition to the existing Lossnay range is designed specifically for the UK housing market and makes energy-efficient, quiet ventilation accessible to even more homes.

 

The residential Lossnay is designed to continuously extract stale air from spaces like bathrooms, kitchens, toilets, and utility rooms where air can become polluted with high humidity, fumes, and chemicals. The system replaces indoor air with filtered fresh air from outside. It also minimises the amount of energy lost by recovering the heat from the extracted air and transferring it to the fresh air supply, maintaining a temperature closer to that inside.

 

The system is designed to operate continuously at low noise levels, providing a solution for residential homes and apartments where comfort is key. Occupants can enjoy all of the benefits of fresh air, without wasting energy.

 

The new residential range comes with optional NOx (nitrogen oxide) and particulate matter filtration, with a third filter pocket for additional NOx emissions filtration. This means that buildings in even the most polluted environments can be supplied with clean, healthy air.

 

Hern Yau, Product Manager for ventilation at Mitsubishi Electric, said: “The quality of indoor air is an important factor for health and wellbeing, and the new residential Lossnay can help to ensure there is a constant flow of fresh air in our homes, removing potentially harmful pollutants and chemicals. Ventilating our indoor spaces is more important than ever, but we also need to be as energy-efficient as possible. This new Lossnay will deliver good indoor air whilst recovering energy to minimise waste.”

 

A built-in automatic summer bypass allows the units to bring in fresh air from outside without recovering heat, reducing the risk of overheating. This bypass provides a solution for cooling down a dwelling, that may have overheated during the day, once the outside temperature has dropped in the evening. The unit can automatically enter bypass mode when it detects the space is hotter than desired, and the outside air is cool enough.

 

Complete with an LCD controller allows for control and commissioning of the unit, and offers a clear display showing normal, boost, and purge modes. Up to four-speed settings can be commissioned digitally to ensure constant and accurate settings.
