British ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia's Silhouette bathroom fan is celebrating its 16th birthday.
Installed in 2005 in a family home in Hornchurch, Essex during the refurbishment of the property’s main bathroom, the fan is still going strong 16 years later.
“When we were refurbishing our main bathroom, we realised that effective ventilation was important to avoid unappealing and unhealthy mould and to extract all the steam from baths and showers. We wanted to make sure the fan we installed would be reliable and would last and this led us to choose the Vent-Axia Silhouette fan”, explained homeowner, Gary McSweeney. “We have not been disappointed and are so impressed that it’s still going strong all these years later. We liked it so much that when we needed a fan for our loft bathroom we went back to the Vent-Axia brand and chose the new Silent Fan which we are also really pleased with.”
“Vent-Axia is committed to sustainability and limiting environmental impact. We are well established for making reliable, energy efficient products that reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions”, explained Lena Hebestreit, marketing manager at Vent-Axia.
A new study released by Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) shows that improving the insulation of existing residential buildings in the EU would significantly contribute to securing the bloc’s energy independence and achieving he EU target of reaching climate neutrality by 2050.
Improved insulation of EU residential buildings would result in a reduction of energy demand for heating in buildings by 777 TWh, or 44% compared to 2020: 46% in gas savings, 44% in heating oil savings and 48% in coal savings.
Recent research by the University of Exeter sets out the scale of the challenge the NHS faces if it is to achieve sustainability targets set under the government’s net zero plan by 2040, a full decade ahead of the wider commercial sector....
