    Has anyone considered this? I suspect on average ventilations are suboptimal (in the same way they are with windows in the house, when not assisted by wind buoyancy), so why not create a vacuum without a couple of extractors?

    Because in so doing you would increase heat losses from your home.

    Tony - I am planning to have the under floor area completely sealed by membranes from the rooms

    Still if you make it colder under there the heat loss will increase

    Delprado - Can you explain more about the proposal.

    I see no reason why you couldn't put an MHRV unit under the floor instead of in the loft if that's what you mean.

    Normally you only extract from "wet" rooms (kitchen, bathroom, WC, Utility room) and feed fresh air into the "dry" rooms (living rooms, bedrooms etc). Extracting from the whole ground floor might not make sense.

    I think some houses in radon risk areas have fans that extract air from under the house.
