What is Positive Ventilation
Positive Pressure Ventilation
Why do we need a ventilation system?
Over the last decade there has been increasing demand on builders, architects and government legislation to increase the thermal efficiency of our homes making them draught free and well insulated. This has caused poorer air quality that can significantly increase the effects of asthma and other respiratory problems, health problems, condensation, mould, dust mites, unpleasant smells and build up of toxic gases.
For health reasons Government legislation now makes it almost compulsory for your new air tight home to have a balanced mechanical ventilation system.
What is Positive Pressure Ventilation?
A positive input pressure ventilation unit (PIV) is a loft or wall mounted unit that pushes fresh filtered air throughout the property to combat condensation via a ceiling mounted diffuser normally fitted in the hallway.
How does it work?
The units continually introduce a subtle filtered air supply from the trapped heat and fresh air from your roof void via a ceiling mounted diffuser normally in your hallway and redistributes the heat trapped at ceiling level. The moist, stale air is then forced out of the property through natural ventilation points (window trickle vents).
