Vent-Axia is celebrating winning the Best Innovation category at this year’s Tenant Services Awards at Stroud District Council, Gloucestershire. Scooping the award for its Lo-Carbon Tempra single room heat recovery unit, Vent-Axia received the accolade at an awards ceremony held at the Barn in Berkeley, Gloucestershire.
The Tenant Services Awards are designed to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions made by both individuals and companies to the Tenant Services at Stroud District Council. Winners are selected by a panel of judges including a selection of Stroud District Council’s managers, councillors and nominated tenants and chaired this year by its interim asset manager.
After a rigorous judging process, Vent-Axia won the Best Innovation Award for its Lo-Carbon Tempra single room heat recovery unit, which had been installed in tenants’ properties by Stroud District Council. Part of the company’s Lo-Carbon initiative, Vent-Axia’s Tempra can be simply retrofitted through a 100mm diameter hole in the wall. This allows traditional inefficient extract fans to be easily replaced with this discreet, low energy, continuously running alternative that also offers affordable heat recovery.
Commenting on the Tempra winning the Best Innovation Award the judging panel said: “Adequate ventilation is a major contributor to tackling damp in homes. Traditional products remove damp air but also remove valuable heat that is paid for by tenants. The Tempra heat recovery fan produced by Vent-Axia has allowed our tenants to manage the air quality in their homes while maintaining efficient use of their heating systems.”
