ABSTRACT
The article discusses the assessment of indoor noise levels using mechanical ventilation with heat recovery systems (MVHR). It states that MVHR is a system used to provide supply and extract ventilation in domestic surroundings. It presents a step-by-step method to calculate the noise level through the ventilation system. It also determines that the noise level of the system is reliant on the required volume and system resistance.
