A Note about ventilation at our studios.

The Mitsubishi LGH-RVX-E air handling system we installed at our studios is designed to supply fresh air whilst simultaneously extracting stale air.

The Lossnay units also recover valuable heat energy for maximum efficiency, with total heat exchange.

How does Lossnay Fresh Air Ventilation work?

The Lossnay Fresh Air Ventilation system works by extracting stale air from inside your premises to remove damp, odours, dust, pathogens and gasses. This air is then replaced with allergen reduced fresh air from outside (unlike some systems that recycle it from within). Where Lossnay gets really clever is with its environmentally friendly ‘Energy Recovery’ system. Put simply, energy within the stale air can be recovered and used to pre-heat or pre-cool the fresh air being vented in. So it warms the fresh air in winter, and cools it in summer.

The need for fresh air.

Poor air quality can be attributed to many problems arising in the workplace. It is believed to contribute to a significant loss in productivity, low morale and higher rates of sickness. Providing good ventilation in commercial buildings is to provide conditions under which people can work comfortably and safely.

The need for appropriate humidity management.

Viruses such as influenza and coronavirus are found to be active and the survival rate high in low humidity and dry environments. In general, the survival rate is said to decrease significantly when the relative humidity is 50% or more the temperature is 20°C. During the winter, keeping an appropriate humidity and heating temperature can help prevent infection.
