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.

The causes of condensation within our homes
Through the daily routine of showers, baths, boiling kettles, cooking, drying clothes and breathing a family of 4 will contribute approximately 4 pints of water per person a day, equal to over 100 pints of water vapour a week, which has to end up somewhere.
Before the days of double glazing, wall and loft insulation this humid, stale air would find its escape route through ill-fitting windows and doors, lofts and so on. It would be replaced by fresher, colder air or to you and me - a draught!
Today, after the introduction of energy saving measures such as draught proofing, double glazing and cavity wall insulation there is no natural escape route for this stale, humid air, which is now trapped inside the home.
As a result, this trapped and stale air only makes the problem worse, causing condensation on windows, walls and poor indoor air quality.
Condensation Prevention – Positive Input Ventilation
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.
Trusted by social housing providers, new build developers and private landlords as a cost-effective, whole-house system that really prevents condensation and black mould.
The result is improved air quality and a healthy living environment in which condensation cannot exist.
