Nuaire found a cure for condensation dampness and the associated black mould problems as long ago as 1972. Over 40 years later, Nuaire’s innovative idea called Positive Input Ventilation is the UK’s most popular method of low-energy whole home ventilation.
You can cure condensation dampness, associated black mould and remove contaminants and pollutants from the home with the low-energy Drimaster range for homes with lofts including bungalows, or the compact Flatmaster range for homes without lofts such as apartments and flats.
Positive Input Ventilation is ideal for Retrofit Projects:
Very easy to install and extremely cost-effective to run, this ventilation strategy will create a fresh and healthy indoor environment in a home, curing condensation dampness and can also drastically reducing the level of Radon gas, allergens and other pollutants that enter the home.
Positive Input Ventilation is cost-effective Ventilation for New Build Projects:
Easy to install and extremely cheap to run, these energy-saving systems will help you meet current building regulations and ensure a fresh and healthy indoor environment.
How Positive Input Ventilation Systems work:
New houses are now being built with better construction building and design methods and are now more airtight, which will lead to condensation dampness and poor indoor air quality if adequate ventilation is not provided. The drive towards more energy efficient homes through building fabric combined with the condensation and pollutants generated from every day activities such as washing, cooking, smoking and cleaning creates poor indoor air quality that is damaging the health of the occupants and the building fabric.
New homes are not alone in suffering from poor and inadequate ventilation. Many older homes are inadequately ventilated, and often the steps we take to better insulate older homes through installing new double or triple glazed windows and adding loft insulation can further decrease the natural ventilation that a building needs to breathe. Washing, cooking, cleaning and drying clothes indoors all contribute to the creation of condensation and pollutants in the air.
The Drimaster and Flatmaster ranges provide whole home ventilation based on the popular Positive Input Ventilation principle. Essentially, the concept is to introduce fresh, filtered air into the dwelling at a continuous rate, encouraging movement of air from inside to outside. To achieve this, the unit is mounted in the loft space (Drimaster) or in the kitchen or hallway (Flatmaster), drawing air through the filters and inputting it into the property.
A property installed unit will ensure that old, contaminated and moisture-laden air in your home is continuously diluted, displaced and replaced with good quality, fresh air. The result is an environment in which condensation dampness cannot exist, and where allergens and pollutants are kept to a minimum.
Both PIV ranges are quick, cost-effective and easy to install, making them an ideal solution for both new build and RMI projects.
The Drimaster range offers whole home ventilation for two and three story homes with lofts.
The Flatmaster range offers whole home ventilation for homes without lofts and can be used to ventilate cellars and basements.
