Jenny Smith, Marketing Manager at Vent-Axia, shows how quick and easy it is to install the Tempra.
Vent-Axia’s Lo-Carbon Tempra was the UK’s first single room heat recovery unit to be simply retrofitted through a 100mm diameter hole in the wall bringing the benefits of heat recovery to the refurbishment sector. Its ease of installation allows standard bathroom, kitchen, toilet or utility room extract fans to be easily replaced with a Tempra without the need to make the hole any larger, saving substantially on installation time and cost. As a result households can benefit from this discreet, low energy, continuously running alternative that also offers affordable heat recovery.
To increase installation ﬂexibility Vent-Axia oﬀers the Tempra with two different spigot sizes. As a result the Tempra can be ﬁtted through wall depths of up to 320mm, or up to 460mm. With the extended spigot ideal for use through thicker walls even more households can beneﬁt from this innovative heat recovery unit, and the reduced energy consumption and carbon footprint reductions it offers.
This type of unit is capable of recovering any heat from extracted air and returning it back to provide up to 78% heat recovery. This performance, taken together with an integral Lo-Carbon DC motor with unique twin impeller design means the units consume as little as 2 Watts of energy and operate almost silently on trickle setting at only 20dB(A), delivering signiﬁcant energy savings.
Discreet and quiet in operation, Tempra can be set to run continuously at 6 l/s or 9 l/s, boosting up to 13 l/s if required. For intermittent extract applications, the unit can be set to operate at 15 l/s. It also incorporates a manual summer setting to ensure that when it is warm outside, it operates on extract only. This eliminates the risk of the home overheating in hot summer weather.
