Sussex-based Vent-Axia Supports Climate Week with Low Carbon Discount

At Vent-Axia we are keen supporters of Climate Week. Our aim is to make Lo-Carbon™ ventilation mainstream

Crawley-based Vent-Axia, leaders in low carbon ventilation, is delighted to be supporting Climate Week by offering a special low carbon discount. During Climate week (12-18th March 2012) online customers will be able to obtain a 30% reduction on the price of the company’s Lo-Carbon Tempra single room heat recovery unit by purchasing the fan via Vent-Axia’s website (

Part of the company’s innovative Lo Carbon™ initiative, Vent-Axia’s revolutionary Lo-Carbon Tempra is the UK’s first single room heat recovery unit which can be simply retrofitted through a 100mm diameter hole in the wall. This allows standard traditional inefficient extract fans to be easily replaced with this discreet, low energy, continuously running alternative that also offers affordable heat recovery. Meanwhile, during Climate Week customers can benefit from all this for a similar price to a traditional intermittent extract fan.

“At Vent-Axia we are keen supporters of Climate Week. Our aim is to make Lo-Carbon™ ventilation mainstream to reduce building energy consumption and so carbon emissions. We see continuous ventilation and heat recovery technology as hugely important in achieving this objective and meeting Government targets for carbon reductions. Offering a discount on our Tempra during Climate Week will allow our customers to take advantage of this revolutionary technology for a similar price to a standard extract fan,” says Lee Nurse, Marketing Director at Vent-Axia.

According, to the Energy Saving Trust, Britain has the oldest housing stock in the developed world with 8.5 million properties over 60 years old. With ageing homes there is a huge potential to improve indoor air quality and building performance while cutting carbon emissions. The Government is therefore keen to target carbon reductions in this sector. Single room heat recovery makes heat recovery more accessible and affordable for existing homes and so offers potential carbon reductions.

Providing up to 80% heat recovery, the Tempra is the only unit of its type which can be retrofitted through a 100mm diameter hole in the wall. This enables standard bathroom, kitchen, toilet or utility room fans to be easily changed for a Tempra without the need to make the hole any larger, saving substantially on installation time and cost. The unit’s performance, taken together with Tempra’s integral Lo-Carbon™ DC motor, brings significant energy savings and will help reduce a home’s carbon footprint.

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.

Complying with Building Regulations Part F for intermittent extract fans and whole house ventilation systems (depending on its application), Tempra is available in a choice of three models. These include an option with light switch control, a T version with an overrun timer and an H version with built-in humidistat.

The Tempra is currently shortlisted in Domestic H&V Product of the Year and the Air Movement Product of the Year categories in the H&V News Awards 2012. In addition it is shortlisted in the Product of the Year category in the Sustain’ Magazine Awards 2012.

Tempra is part of the Vent-Axia Lo-Carbon™ collection of energy saving ventilation solutions. The aim of the Lo-Carbon™ initiative is to offer the latest low carbon ventilation technology to reduce building energy consumption and carbon emissions.
