Treatment of Mechanical Extract Ventilation and Balanced Whole House Mechanical Ventilation in DEAP

Date October-2007


Definition of ventilation systems ref deap manual section 2 6 l.jpg

Definition of Ventilation Systems Ref: DEAP Manual Section 2.6

Mechanical extract ventilation (MEV):

is a fan driven ventilation system, which only extracts air from the dwelling. The DEAP calculation is based on a throughput of 0.5 air changes per hour through the mechanical system, plus infiltration.

Balanced whole house mechanical ventilationno heat recovery (MVNHR):

is a fan driven ventilation system, which provides fresh air tothe rooms in the dwelling and also extracts exhaust air from the dwelling. The system is not fitted with a heat recovery unit. The DEAP calculation in such cases is based on a throughput of 0.5 air changes per hour through the mechanical system, plus infiltration.

Balanced whole house mechanical ventilationwith heat recovery (MVHR):

is a fan driven ventilation system, which provides fresh air tothe rooms in the dwelling and also extracts exhaust air from the dwelling. The system is fitted with a heat recovery unit. The DEAP calculation in such cases is based on a throughput of 0.5 air changes per hour through the mechanical system, plus infiltration.

The heat loss by mechanical ventilation is reduced by the factor v where v = 0.66 is the default efficiency assumed for the heat recovery system.


Deap default data specific fan power l.jpg

DEAP Default Data: Specific Fan Power

  • The fans in mechanical ventilation system consume electricity.

  • The electricity consumption is reflected by the specific fan power (SFP) of the unit.

  • Default SFPs are detailed in DEAP Table 4g:


Deap default data heat exchanger efficiency l.jpg

DEAP Default Data: Heat Exchanger Efficiency

  • MVHR systems recover heat from the exhaust air and use this to warm inlet air.

  • The efficiency of the heat recovery system is reflected in the rated heat exchanger efficiency of the unit.

  • The default heat exchanger efficiency used in DEAP is 66%

  • The DEAP software uses the default data unless otherwise specified

Testing ventilation systems l.jpg

Testing Ventilation Systems

  • Test methods

  • Developed by EST (Energy Saving Trust), BRE (Building Research Establishment), TEHVA (The Electric Heating and Ventilation Association), RVA (Residential Ventilation Association)

  • Based on the European standards

  • Must be read alongside the European standards:

  • BS EN 13141-6:2004 to define the duct configurations

  • BS EN 13141-7:2004 covering testing of heat recovery ventilation

  • MVHR Test temperatures

Procedure for handling ventilation systems with more efficient parameter data l.jpg

Procedure for Handling Ventilation Systems with more Efficient Parameter Data

  • Search the SAP Appendix Q Product Database (www.sap-appendixq.org.uk )

  • Use the product specification to identify the appropriate specific fan power or the SFP and Heat exchanger efficiency for the configuration that best matches that of the particular dwelling – including the nature of the ductwork, viz. rigid or flexible.

  • Enter the specific fan or the specific fan power and heat exchanger efficiency values directly in to DEAP software, Ventilation tab.

Other considerations l.jpg

Other Considerations

  • Dwellings with MEV/MVHR systems will yield better BERs when combined with improved air tightness measures.

  • If a product is not listed on SAP Appendix Q, product manufacturers should refer to the “Testing Standards” page on SAP Appendix Q website for details of how to get a product listed.
