The Passive House collective were out in force in Bristol on Thursday 18th June to attend Bristol BIG Green Week’s Passivhaus Thursday - and Zehnder were part of the action.

Always keen to showcase our Passive House credentials, Zehnder’s exhibit of Passive House certified MVHR products and educational literature was supported by a presentation from our Northern Technical Manager, Allan Derbyshire.  During the morning session, Allan gave an insight in to why good quality Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) is important in Passive House design.  Covering off the key factors that everyone should be aware of when considering their Passive House MVHR options – comfort, energy and most importantly – good design and installation.  A copy of Allan’s full presentation is available to download here.

The event, which was organised by Bristol Certified Passive House Designers, Gcp Chartered Architects, and sponsored by Advantage Austria, included an itinerary of talks supported by an exhibition of products and building systems.  Other activities included Passive House site visits and project design review surgeries.
