Healthy and energy efficient homes are made thanks to SAP Appendix Q
ADM Systems has supplied, installed and commissioned a Vent-Axia® Central Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) system into a prestigious property in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Designed by Elaine Graham Architects, the property now boasts high levels of energy efficiency, along with a healthier internal air environment. The market-leading Vent-Axia® MEV system from ADM Systems was chosen because it has less dependency on background ventilators and requires only a single discharge grille for the whole property. The Vent-Axia® system also has smaller ducts which are easier to install and allowed it to fit in with the overall design of the property.
ADM Systems specialises in air management and supplies one of the widest ranges of SAP Appendix Q products in the UK. SAP Appendix Q offers a method, to enable building designers to improve the Dwelling Emission Rate of their developments, through the use of energy efficient ventilation products. The website lists a range of ventilation systems that building service engineers and designers can use to improve the energy efficiency and gain a higher SAP rating. Users of the SAP Appendix Q recommended systems can also amend the default settings within the SAP calculation specifically for ventilation, providing positive impacts on DER calculations.
The Vent-Axia® MEV system chosen for the development in North Yorkshire and installed by ADM Systems provides simultaneous, low level extraction from wet rooms in the property, such as kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms, to a central extract fan via a system of ductwork and grilles. The extracted air is then discharged to outside via a single duct and grille.
Elaine Graham, Principal Architect on this project, explains: “We were very impressed with the expertise offered by ADM Systems. They were able to recommend a selection of appropriate systems from the SAP Appendix Q website, along with providing a complete supply, install and commissioning service to the client.”
The building designer on this particular site eventually chose the ventilation system from Vent-Axia®, supplied and installed by ADM Systems, because of the company’s reputation for market leading products.
Chris Marriott, Managing Director at ADM Systems, explains: “We fitted an MEV system in these properties because it provides the required ventilation whilst only requiring minimal energy to run. These properties will ultimately be more energy efficient and the occupiers will benefit from cleaner, healthier air.”
ADM Systems, which is a leading company in air management, supplies and installs one of the widest ranges of ventilation systems from the SAP Appendix Q website. It offers many market leading brands, including a full range of Vent-Axia® systems.
Chris Marriott, continues: “We have supplied and installed many of the ventilation systems from the SAP Appendix Q website for clients looking to improve the energy efficiency of their dwelling. Given the choice, we always recommend that building designers, engineers and consultants choose products from the SAP Appendix Q website because it promotes the use of energy efficient ventilation products that offer benefits in SAP ratings.”
