If you are struggling with condensation and damp, then it may be worth investing in a Positive Input Ventilation System (PIV). These are incredibly effective in improving ventilation and reducing health problems. AD Damp Proofing Bury can provide two different types of systems: a PIV System or a PIV Loft Unit.
A PIV system works by introducing outdoor air into space. Alongside this, it is used to control indoor air quality. It controls it by removing indoor pollutants at a continuous rate to decrease condensation. Eventually, this will rid of it as well as preventing mould growth. A PIV unit works as a whole-house ventilation system and it will supply fresh, filtered air into your living space.
Warm air rises, and with other rooms below, it can cause condensation and mould growth in your loft due to a lack of ventilation. Loft space is often used for storage, and your roof vents are more than likely covered by storage boxes which are preventing proper air flow around the room. A PIV loft unit is similar to a regular PIV system, but it lives in your loft space. It works by mixing its air flow with the air at the top of the room. Tt floats downward to circulate with the rest of the air. The system runs automatically, and will switch off when the temperature reaches 25°C. When the temperature drops, it will switch itself back on.
PIV systems are ideal as they take a minimal amount of energy to run, and don’t need regular maintenance. It is incredibly cost-effective and they also come with an optional heater element. It is important that you install effective condensation control into your homes to prevent the risk of increasing health issues such as asthma, and our team at AD Damp Proofing can help.
