Prevent condensation in your home with Positive Input Ventilation Installers Bradford

Positive Input Ventilation uses air displacement to ventilate a whole house, thereby improving the air quality and preventing condensation problems within your home. This Condensation Control unit is specifically designed for use in existing properties. 

A single fan unit that is mounted in the roof space (central location for flats) supplies fresh, filtered air into your home via the hallway or landing. This creates a slight positive air pressure that pushes stale, vapour-laden air out via air gaps or through humidity-sensitive window vents.

Features and Benefits of PIV Units

Energy Saving : Supply-air taken from the roof space is slightly warmer than outside air so can provide some energy saving compared with a conventional extract system.

Low Running Costs : With its DC fan, PIV Loft Unit is extremely energy efficient, costing from as little as 1pence a day to run.

Minimal Maintenance: Replacement of the long-life filter is only required every 5 years (if extremely soiled) otherwise you can hand wash in warm water and hang dry.

Aerodynamically designed diffuser: The diffuser is designed to direct incoming air along the ceiling, thereby mixing with, re-using and re-circulating high-level warm air.

Dampness causes secondary damage to buildings.  Unwanted moisture activates the growth of various fungi in wood, causing rot or mould health issues and may eventually lead to sick building syndrome. Stains, from the water, salts and from mould, mar surfaces. The highest airborne mould concentrations are found in buildings where significant mould infestation has occurred, usually as a result of severe water intrusion or flood damage. Moulds can grow on almost any surface and occur where there is a lot of moisture from structural problems such as leaky roofs or high humidity levels. Airborne mould concentrations have the potential to be inhaled and can have health effects.

PIV Unit FAQs

What is a Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit?

A Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit is an advanced ventilation system designed to improve indoor air quality by introducing fresh, filtered air into a building. The PIV unit operates by drawing in air from the outside or loft space, filtering it to remove pollutants, and gently distributing it throughout the home via a central unit. This process helps to dilute and displace stale, moisture-laden air, reducing condensation and the potential for mould growth.

Is a PIV unit suitable for people with allergies?

PIV units benefit people with allergies as they help filter out common allergens such as pollen, dust, and pet dander from the air, providing a cleaner and healthier indoor environment.

The following have been proven to be reduced significantly with PIV Technology:

• Respiratory problems (Asthma etc)
• Allergies (Pets, Pollen etc)
• Odours
• Dust Mites

Key benefits of a PIV unit include:

Improved Air Quality: Continuous supply of fresh air helps to reduce indoor pollutants and allergens.
Condensation Control: Helps to manage and reduce condensation, minimising the risk of dampness and mould.
Energy Efficiency: Modern PIV units are designed to be energy-efficient, often incorporating heat recovery features to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Supply air taken from the roof space is slightly warmer than outside air so can provide some energy saving compared with a conventional extract system.
Healthier Living Environment: By ensuring a consistent flow of clean air, PIV units contribute to a healthier and more comfortable living environment.
Low Running Costs: With its DC fan, the PIV Loft Unit is extremely energy efficient, costing as little as 1pence a day to run.
Minimal Maintenance: Replacement of the long-life filter is only required every 5 years (if extremely soiled) otherwise you can hand wash in warm water and hang dry.
Aerodynamically Designed Diffuser: The diffuser is designed to direct incoming air along the ceiling, thereby mixing with, re-using and re-circulating high-level warm air.

Where should a PIV unit be installed?

The optimal installation of a Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit is crucial for its effective operation. At JRM Positive Input Ventilation Installers, we ensure that your PIV unit is positioned to maximise its benefits.

Here are the key considerations for installing a PIV unit:

Central Location: The PIV unit should be installed in a central location within the property to ensure even distribution of fresh air. Commonly, this is in the loft or hallway, centrally positioned to facilitate airflow throughout the home.

Loft Installation: For loft installations, the unit is typically mounted on the ceiling joists, away from direct exposure to the elements. This placement utilises the natural warmth in the loft space, particularly during colder months, to temper the incoming air, enhancing energy efficiency.

Hallway Installation: In properties without loft space, the PIV unit can be installed in the hallway or on the landing. This location should be chosen to ensure the airflow can reach all rooms efficiently, promoting a consistent indoor environment.

Access to External Air Source: The PIV unit should have access to an external air source, which can be filtered and introduced into the property. This ensures the air being circulated is fresh and of good quality.

Avoid Obstructions: The area around the PIV unit should be clear of obstructions to allow unrestricted airflow. This ensures the unit operates effectively and the fresh air can circulate freely throughout the property.

Electrical Provisions: Ensure that there is a suitable electrical supply nearby for the unit. The installation should comply with relevant electrical safety standards and building regulations.

Do PIV units require regular maintenance?

Yes, PIV units require minimal maintenance. The main requirement is to regularly check and replace the filters to ensure the unit operates efficiently, providing clean air. The frequency of filter changes will depend on your specific model and environmental conditions.

Are PIV units noisy?

Modern PIV units are designed to operate quietly. They produce a low-level hum that is barely noticeable. If noise is a concern, we offer units with enhanced soundproofing features to ensure minimal disruption.

Can a PIV unit be installed in any type of property?

PIV units are versatile and can be installed in a variety of property types, including houses, flats, and bungalows. We offer different models to suit various property layouts and ventilation needs.

Will a PIV unit eliminate all condensation and mould issues?

While a PIV unit significantly reduces the likelihood of condensation and mould growth by improving air circulation and reducing humidity levels, it may not eliminate these issues in properties with severe underlying damp problems. It’s important to address any structural issues alongside installing a PIV unit.
