Condensation, Mould and Hay Fever - Can Ventilation help these issues?
With the end of winter nearly upon us and Spring being just around the corner, hay fever is a common allergy that will start to become more prominent again as the warmer weather returns. When the pollen count rises, it is an allergy that many sufferers find hard to avoid, even within their own home.
All of these issues that are stated above and many more pollutants, are all down to the air circulating within the home. For condensation, the most contributing factor is having excess moisture within the air which has nowhere to escape, causing condensation to build up. Eventually, this condensation will lead to black mould which is usually easy to spot with the dark, coloured speckles on the walls, windowsills or celling of the room.
Having good ventilation within your home is an ideal way to avoid these issues. A continuous ventilation solution will vent the stale air out of the home and provide fresh, clean air in its place to provide a safer living environment and stop the moisture from building up and causing condensation.
Placing extractor fans within the ‘wet’ rooms of the home, such as the bathroom and kitchen, will help to remove the excess moisture in the air from the daily activities of showering, cooking and cleaning. However, this will only work for the rooms in which the extractor fans are placed meaning that the other rooms in the house could still be affected by damp and mould growth.
What solutions are available?
Here at BPC, we have a number of whole house ventilation solutions available, with an MVHR system being the ultimate solution to helping with the problems of condensation, mould and hay fever.
We work with a number of leading brands and offer a great range of MVHR systems to suit all needs and budgets. You can view our full range of MVHR units on our website or get in touch with our sales team if you have any queries or wish to get further recommendations.
If you are looking for a solution to just help combat the condensation and mould build up within the home, a PIV system could be the perfect option.
One of our most popular PIV systems is the Vent-Axia Pozidry Pro. You can purchase this system as loft-mounted or wall-mounted and in the loft-mounted version, you can choose between having an integrated heater or not included. This system comes included with a 5-year maintenance free guarantee and is near silent, with low operational costs.
Another option that is available is an MEV system. Although an MEV system will not provide a whole-house solution, if you are suffering from condensation and mould in particular wet rooms, it may be the perfect option for you.
The DucoBox Silent would be one of our most popular MEV units. It is known for being the quietest MEV system in Europe and comes with a build in humidity sensor. With powerful extraction and low maintenance, this unit is popular among our customers who are looking to solve their condensation issues.
