Commissioning MVHR at Ancre Hill Winery

MVHR Commissioning by Andrew Farr of Green Building StoreThe MVHR at Ancre Hill Winery was designed jointly between Piers Sadler Consulting and the supplier Green Building Store.  The building has no heating or cooling so the system has been designed to help maintain near constant temperatures at 10-15o C. The system is designed to remove CO2 from the building when wine is fermenting and to keep the building cool in summer.  From Autumn to late Spring the system is automatically controlled by as 0-10V signal from CO2 sensors so that the ventilation progressively ramps up as CO2 concentrations increase. In summer when CO2 is not being generated, the summer by-pass has been specially adapted to enable air as cold as 2oC to be drawn into the building at night for cooling purposes.  The automatic control is switched to manual and the fan speed adjusted to vary the cooling.  The supply air ducts have been insulated to avoid condensation.
