    So I did some testing in the bedroom last night - no window open, door closed (small gap underneath) and two of us. Co2 PPM got to about 2600ppm and humidity up to 80%. So I do need to do something about it.

    As I cannot run ducting easily between first and second floor, is it a solution to just put a MVHR in the loft space, extracting from the bathroom, and then feeding each bedroom?

    You could fit a larger unit capable of doing the entire house and connect up later if possible? Not sure how much extra that would cost, but cheaper than replacing the unit.

    it is usually possible to find a route down to the lower floor through an airing cupboard, built in cupboard, in a corner or behind a door.

    The only place I can see getting a single duct downstairs is from the bathroom, as its below the upstairs bathroom.

    As this looks like it might work as an idea, can anyone recommend some companies to contact?

    Thanks

    BPC ventilation

    They may be able to sort you out with an installer too, though the one they recommended to me answered the phone a few times, quoted but never bothered to show up and do the job after I accepted, so I DIYed it. Easiest job on the house I've done tbh
