1 Treatment of Mechanical Extract Ventilation and Balanced Whole House Mechanical Ventilation in DEAP Date October-2007

2 Definition of Ventilation Systems Ref: DEAP Manual Section 2.6 Mechanical extract ventilation (MEV): is a fan driven ventilation system, which only extracts air from the dwelling. The DEAP calculation is based on a throughput of 0.5 air changes per hour through the mechanical system, plus infiltration. Balanced whole house mechanical ventilation no heat recovery (MVNHR): is a fan driven ventilation system, which provides fresh air to the rooms in the dwelling and also extracts exhaust air from the dwelling. The system is not fitted with a heat recovery unit. The DEAP calculation in such cases is based on a throughput of 0.5 air changes per hour through the mechanical system, plus infiltration. Balanced whole house mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR): is a fan driven ventilation system, which provides fresh air to the rooms in the dwelling and also extracts exhaust air from the dwelling. The system is fitted with a heat recovery unit. The DEAP calculation in such cases is based on a throughput of 0.5 air changes per hour through the mechanical system, plus infiltration. The heat loss by mechanical ventilation is reduced by the factor  v where  v = 0.66 is the default efficiency assumed for the heat recovery system.

3 DEAP Default Data: Specific Fan Power The fans in mechanical ventilation system consume electricity. The electricity consumption is reflected by the specific fan power (SFP) of the unit. Default SFPs are detailed in DEAP Table 4g: System TypeSFP MEV0.8 W/litre/sec MVNHR2.0 W/litre/sec MVHR2.0 W/litre/sec

4 DEAP Default Data: Heat Exchanger Efficiency MVHR systems recover heat from the exhaust air and use this to warm inlet air. The efficiency of the heat recovery system is reflected in the rated heat exchanger efficiency of the unit. The default heat exchanger efficiency used in DEAP is 66% The DEAP software uses the default data unless otherwise specified

7 Testing Ventilation Systems Test methods Developed by EST (Energy Saving Trust), BRE (Building Research Establishment), TEHVA (The Electric Heating and Ventilation Association), RVA (Residential Ventilation Association) Based on the European standards Must be read alongside the European standards: BS EN :2004 to define the duct configurations BS EN :2004 covering testing of heat recovery ventilation MVHR Test temperatures

8 Operation of MEV Systems Kitchen exhaust Bathroom exhaust Toilet exhaust Outlet terminal Fan unit 1. SFP (W/litre/sec) - power input to the fan at the minimum flow rate at each operating point when the system is installed in accordance with the manufacturers instructions.

9 Operation of MVHR Systems Bedroom 1 supply Bedroom 2 supply Lounge supply Kitchen/dinner supply Kitchen exhaust Bathroom exhaust Toilet exhaust Duct from fan to Outlet terminal Duct from fan to Supply terminal Heat recovery and fan unit T1T4 T3T2 1. SFP (W/litre/sec) - power input to the fans at the minimum flow rate at each operating point when the system is installed in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. 2. Thermal performance (efficiency) of assembled supply and exhaust package with heat recovery used for a single dwelling (T2 - T1) / (T3 – T1)

10 Operation of MVNHR Systems Bedroom 1 supply Bedroom 2 supply Lounge supply Kitchen/dinner supply Kitchen exhaust Bathroom exhaust Toilet exhaust Duct from fan to Outlet terminal Duct from fan to Supply terminal Fan unit 1. SFP (W/litre/sec) - power input to the fans at the minimum flow rate at each operating point when the system is installed in accordance with the manufacturers instructions.

11 Procedure for Handling Ventilation Systems with more Efficient Parameter Data 1.Search the SAP Appendix Q Product Database (www.sap-appendixq.org.uk )www.sap-appendixq.org.uk 2.Use the product specification to identify the appropriate specific fan power or the SFP and Heat exchanger efficiency for the configuration that best matches that of the particular dwelling – including the nature of the ductwork, viz. rigid or flexible. 3.Enter the specific fan or the specific fan power and heat exchanger efficiency values directly in to DEAP software, Ventilation tab.

12 Example

13 Search SAP Appendix Q Database

14 Search SAP Appendix Q Database

15 Search SAP Appendix Q Database

16 Refer to the Specification for the Appropriate Product (example below)

17 Select the Specific Fan Power and Heat Exchanger Efficiency (if MVHR) for the configuration that best fits the assessment dwelling Example

18 Enter the Data into DEAP Software, Ventilation Tab

19 Energy saved by MVHR system should not also be entered into Energy Requirements, Fuel Data Tab

20 Other Considerations Dwellings with MEV/MVHR systems will yield better BERs when combined with improved air tightness measures. If a product is not listed on SAP Appendix Q, product manufacturers should refer to the “Testing Standards” page on SAP Appendix Q website for details of how to get a product listed.
