All properties can benefit from improved ventilation. Proper ventilation is an immediate solution to damp and mould issues in older properties, even if refurbished, and can prevent future issues in new properties.
Additionally, it helps create a healthy indoor environment with long-term benefits to the fabric of the building.
Improved air quality is also good for the health and wellbeing of occupants, particularly those with respiratory conditions and allergies. Having freshly filtered air coming into the house all year round offers huge health benefits.

Types of ventilation
Extract fans remove moisture from the air. They prevent condensation and its associated problems to improve indoor air quality. Installing a single room extract fan is a simple and cost-effective way of meeting building regulation ventilation requirements.
Individual room extract fans are designed to operate in conjunction with ‘rapid ventilation’ such as openable windows. Additionally, they also need ‘background ventilation’ such as trickle vents in windows.
Decentralised mechanical extract ventilation (dMEV) provides continuous background extraction of moisture. Fans can be mounted on walls, windows or ceilings where they are most needed, such as kitchens, utility rooms, bathrooms, showers and toilets.
Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) fans continuously bring fresh filtered air into the home from outside. These compact low-energy, heat recovery devices are often mounted in the loft area. The process removes allergens such as dust mites and pollutants caused by cooking.
By having a Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) fan installed, condensation and mould and harmful gases simply cannot exist.
