ADM SYSTEMS - MVHR System From ADM Tackles Condensation In Yorkshire Farmhouse

ADM Systems has helped a homeowner in South Yorkshire address the issue of condensation in their stone built farmhouse.

Soon after moving into the property, Mr Parks, the owner, discovered that the doubled glazed windows and solid stone walls were resulting in high levels of condensation.

This is because the double glazing significantly improved air tightness of the dwelling, preventing the natural circulation of air that would normally allow warm, moisture laden air to escape outside.

This situation was exacerbated by the solid stone walls, that meant a cold bridging effect during winter, was causing the inside face of the wall to remain relatively cool.

When the warm moist air inside the property met the cooler surface of the wall, it condensed causing water droplets to form on it.

Moisture in the home was being created by breathing, cooking and washing – a typical household of four people can produce up to 18 litres of moisture per day.

ADM was able to demonstrate to the owner, how a Heat Recovery Ventilation System (MVHR) could tackle the condensation issue, by lowering relative humidity of the air inside the home.

If this problem hadn’t been addressed, mould growth and proliferation of dust mites would have remained an ongoing problem for the family - smelling ‘fusty’ was one of the first signs that they knew they had a condensation and mould problem!

House dust mites are a real problem for many asthma sufferers as their airborne detritus, along with mould spores, can lead to asthma, the severity of which intensifies with increased relative humidity.

The mould growth was also causing unsightly markings on the walls, which was requiring regular and costly redecoration. Left unchecked, this moisture penetrates into the structure of the building, leading to costly repair bills.

“We are delighted with the results of fitting the MVHR system from ADM,” said Mr Parks, the owner of the property. “Before we had the MVHR system, we had a serious problem with condensation, which was created by cold bridging across the solid walls and the lack of natural air circulation, caused by the double glazed windows.”

The MVHR system is providing the homeowners with an additional benefit, too, by improving energy efficiency. This is making the property feel much more comfortable and making significant savings on their heating bills.

It does this by a series of ducts that collect stale moist air inside the house, from areas such as the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms. This stale contaminated air passes through the HRV unit and is exhausted to the outside. Clean fresh air is then drawn from the outside, as the two air streams pass each other, the heat is transferred from the outgoing stale air to the fresh incoming air. There is no mixing of air streams.

During winter, the system is able to capture over 90% of the energy from the outgoing stale air before delivering it as warm filtered, preconditioned air into the living areas of the property through the ducting.
