Creating A Healthy Indoor Environment With Ventilation
Today’s well insulated indoor climates may be good for our energy bills but not so good for our health. The problem stems from a lack of air renewal – the days of natural ventilation being readily available through small leakages or gaps in the fabric of our houses have all but disappeared. Windows and doors are tight, walls and ceilings are sealed by vapour barriers and any sign of moisture on the inside of double glazing can be a symptom of an unsatisfactory indoor climate.
For health reasons, it’s important to maintain a proper humidity level in the home. Too little humidity can cause some personal discomfort issues whilst too much moisture can make a home a breeding ground for mould and mildew.
Some homes may also have moisture problems only at certain times of the year, such as in spring when there is a lot of ground water runoff, while other properties need help to control moisture levels all year round. In some instances moisture is a problem only in one room or area, but this should not be neglected.
Provide continuous 24-hour whole house extract ventilation and heat recovery
Solar Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) delivers warmed fresh air into the home. Unlike MVHR systems it does not require an internal MVHR Unit. The solar panel on the roof warms the air and this is distributed around the home’s duct work with duct fans. Heat recovery is also possible and provides a central extract system too.
With best in class ventilation solutions from leading manufacturers such as Lindab (duct systems and ceiling terminals), SolarVenti (PIV roof panels) and Vent-Axia (MVHR units) we can get the fresh air in your home without impacting on your energy bills.
