  • Dantherm domestic ventilation Model HCH

Energy-efficient home ventilation

A good indoor climate determines the health and well-being of the entire family and protects buildings and interior from moisture damage.

The HCH range of home ventilation units has built-in RH sensors automatically adjusting air volumes in relation to the relative humidity in the home. This means that there is no need to wire the unit up to external sensors.

The HCH units are constructed with a new, light-weight aluminium counter flow heat exchanger developed and manufactured by Dantherm, which has an efficiency level of up to 95%.

The integrated control panel allows the user to adjust individual default settings such as manual or automatic control of ventilation speed. With an optional wireless remote control the user gets access to further control options such as away and night operation.

Energy efficiency class A or A+
The standard versions of HCV/HCH are rated as energy efficiency class A. By connecting an optional CO2 sensor in the kitchen-dining room or the bedroom, the HCV/HCH units will obtain energy efficiency class A+. The CO2 sensor is connected to the MVHR unit by means of the accessory control (HAC 1).

Accessory control for energy class A+

Accessory control HAC 1:

Accessory control with connection of heating coils, cooling coils, geothermal collector, duct damper, stop function, fire thermostat, CO2 sensor, hygrostat and alarms, incl. 5 m cable.

The HAC accessory control covers most requirements if the ventilation unit is to be connected to a Building Management System.

Read here for a more detailed description of connection to a building management system

Included in the Energy Efficiency Class A+ kit.

Wireless remote control, HRC 2:

The remote control gives access to: 

Manual operation
Demand-controlled operation
Choice between 12 different week programs
Away operation when you are absent for a longer period
Night operation
Reading of outdoor temperature, supply and extract temperature, room temperature, relative humidity and CO2 level
Installer menu for adjustment and fault-finding


Siphon trap kit:

Siphon trap kit including 2 m 3/4" armed hose and glands. 


Heat cable:

Heat cable, 230 V, 10W/m, incl. 5oC thermostat for frost protection of drain. Length 3 m.


Communication cable:

Communication cable with plug for connection of HCP 4 control panel to the HCV/HCH ventilation unit. Length 30 m.


Wall mounting rail:

Mounting rail for plan installation of HCV behind the door in a cupboard. With this rail the installation depth will be reduced. Insulation tape (50x3 mm), vibration damper and U-profile (19x5 mm) are included.
