Aubren client company Vaventis awarded by Passive House Institute


We are delighted to announce that our client company Vaventis have been selected as second place winners at the Passive House Institute Component Award 2016. The award for ventilation solutions in residential buildings is selected by an independent jury. The product award is based on two main criteria – energy efficiency and economic viability. The presentation of the Award will take place at the 20th International Passive House Conference which is to be held on 22 and 23 April in Darmstadt.

We believe that Vaventis are worthy winners of the award as they have been relentless in their pursuit of an energy efficient solution to decentralised ventilation with heat recovery. The core of the fresh-r® unit is a patented fine wire heat exchanger that consists of 8 km ultra thin copper wire with a total weight of less then 0.5 kg. With a heat transfer coefficient of 400 W/mK copper transfers heat 1000 times better than polyethylene of which traditional heat exchangers are made. Using ebm-papst  fans, the low pressure drop in the heat exchanger and the aerodynamic design,  the fresh-r has the highest capacity on the market at 30dB(a).  Combined with intelligent controls it has a higher overall efficiency, which results in more comfortable air coming in and a shorter payback time of the fresh-r®.
