Moisture and Contaminants in the HomeIn addition to the 112 pints of moisture that an average family produces per week through cooking, bathing, ironing and breathing, a concoction of other contaminants is present in the air within our homes. These can have a detrimental effect on the fabric of our homes and the health of our families.
Improved insulation in our homes, such as cavity wall insulation, double-glazing and draught proofing, have led to a reduction in natural air movement and ventilation. Stale, contaminated air is trapped causing condensation and streaming windows, which ultimately leads to musty smells, dampness and mould growth.
Mould is a serious problem in the home and, if you paint over the problem, it will only come back. By improving the quality of the air in your home you can considerably reduce house dust mite populations: a major trigger of asthma. The average 6-room house collects 40 pounds of dust a year.
The Solution To Stale & Contaminated AirThe solution is Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) or MIV. Our EnviroVent positive ventilation units are sophisticated whole home ventilation and condensation control units.
How Positive Input Ventilation WorksBy drawing in fresh, filtered and clean air from outside, our PIV units gently ventilate the home from a central position on a landing in a house or the central hallway in a flat or bungalow.
Control of Humidity LevelsMoisture laden air is diluted, displaced and replaced to control humidity levels to around 55%. This significantly reduces or eliminates surface condensation, the main cause for mould growth. With lower humidity levels, dust mite populations are also substantially reduced to provide a significant improvement in the health of asthma sufferers and general indoor air quality.
How the PIV Unit Operates
- The unit gently ventilates the home with fresh air
- Air is pushed back down into the house and redistributed
- Humidity is replaced and diluted to leave a healthy, fresh and clean environment to live in.
- House is now free from contaminants
