Positive Input Ventilation (PIV)
Positive Input Ventilation is the most effective method of curing and preventing condensation dampness.
Installed in over 1 million homes, PIV is the UK’s most popular method of low-energy, whole-home ventilation.
Poor ventilation is a wide-scale problem. It is estimated that one in five UK households are poorly ventilated, leading to problems with streaming windows, mould growth and poor indoor air quality.
Condensation dampness is the major indoor air pollutant caused by modern living. Energy efficiency measures such as cavity wall insulation and double glazing make homes warmer by sealing in the heat. But as a result, the humid, stale air becomes trapped inside the house leading to condensation and the appreance of black mould.
Through everyday life, such as cooking and breathing, the average family produces over 17 pints of moisture a day. Condensation forms when this moistures comes into contact with cold surfaces within the home. This condensation will lead to mould growth, which is not only unpleasant but damaging to the fabric of the building and creates unnecessary costs for the registered landlord in decoration and maintenance.
Poor indoor air quality has significant impact on the health and wellbeing of occupants. studies have firmly linked poor indoor air quality with a range of undesirable illnesses, such as allergic and asthma symptoms, airborne respiratory infections and even lung cancer and stroke.
