Mechanical Extract Ventilation – MEV
MEV refers to extract units which simply expel stale air (continuously). Operating at low flow rates of between 50m3/hr and 65m/hr MEV units keep air flowing through a room or building, acting rather like a small window. This is known as Trickle.
Some MEV units can switch to a more powerful setting – up to 80m3/hr for example, at times of specific demand. This is known as Boost.
