    Hi all,

    Can purge mode on MHRV be used to reduce dust? Does it make sense to take it on during and after hooving your home?

    What do you mean by purge mode on MVHR?

    edit: And why would there be dust whilst vacuuming? Vacuums have filters.

    My vent-axia MHRV system runs at about 21% (if that is correct terminology), but it has goes to something like 40% if I have showers. There is an option called purge where it runs at around that higher rate, I think the manual suggested it for when you have bad smells or people smoking. Anyway when I hoover my home there is always a lot of dust kicked up in the air that doesnt get sucked into the machine so I wondered could pruge mode clean the house.

    Then one option to look at would be fitting filters to the ventilation extract terminals, to stop the dust being pulled into the ducts (whether or not using purge mode).

    I see. I will look into this. My house is not particularly dusty and there is a filter for extract air. I guess the problem in my idea is that the air will only be cleaned that is aroud the bathrooms

    Ah, OK, so purge just means a high rate.

    I would buy a vacuum that doesn't kick up a lot of dust. Good vacuums suck up dust, not blow it around.
