Installing a residential ventilation solution fitted with house heat recovery functionality significantly improves your indoor air quality while reducing your energy consumption at the same time. Here’s why all Dantherm units come with heat recovery as standard.

At Dantherm, we have more than 50 years of experience in designing, building and supplying air handling solutions reputed for their durability. All designed and built in Denmark, our residential heat recovery ventilation solutions are ideal for private houses, new build projects as well as renovation.

Delivering clean and fresh pre-heated air in your house, all of our heat recovery ventilation units are economic and silent and require minimal maintenance. All the end user has to do is to replace the filters once or twice a year. Of course, the units are able to meet the recommendations of the Passive House standard along with the building regulations in force in many countries across Europe.

Advantages of Dantherm residential ventilation units with heat recovery:

Extremely low operating costs

Many years of dedicated development work have resulted in heat recovery ventilation units complying with some of the strictest building regulations in existence. Dantherm's heat recovery ventilation units use the latest ventilation technology resulting in a very low electricity consumption and longevity. The air flows through the unit are optimal and almost without resistance. Therefore, the fans do not have to struggle and will use less energy.

Optimised counter-flow heat exchangers for all needs

Dantherm has three efficient types of counter-flow heat exchangers offering thermal efficiencies between 86 and 96%:

  1. Aluminium heat exchangers characterised by low pressure loss, good sound reduction and high air output
  2. Plastic heat exchangers with the same benefits as aluminium exchanger, but a better thermal efficiency
  3. Enthalpy heat exchangers capable of transferring humidity to prevent drying out the indoor climate in the winter and vice versa in the summer

Enthalpy is the latest generation of heat exchangers. It has a lower thermal efficiency than the plastic exchanger, but has the advantage of a special polymer membrane capable of transferring up to 65% of the humidity from the humid airstream to the dry airstream. In the winter months, when the air humidity outside is low, the enthalpy heat exchanger prevents the indoor climate from becoming too dry, while ensuring the opposite effect over the warm, humid summer months.

Stylish and functional HRC wireless remote control

A stylish and functional remote control is available as an optional extra for the Dantherm heat recovery ventilation units. It gives users access to a large number of extra control options than those offered by the standard control panel. The remote control is in a nice and timeless design and can be left on the table or hang on the wall. The remote control gives access to 11-week programs, away operation, night operation, fireplace operation, reading of actual supply and extract air temperatures, RH%, CO2-values of the air and more.
