Positive Input Ventilation
Save on your energy bill and provide your home with clean, fresh air. Every home needs fresh air to come into the building from outside, for you to breathe. It’s also vital that stale and damp air and pollutants are removed – both for your health, and the integrity of the building.
Opening windows and doors – so-called purge ventilation – teamed with extractor fans in kitchens and bathrooms will do the job, but of course causes heat loss. To ensure that you are saving energy but also creating a healthy home, it’s vital to consider how the house is ventilated. Positive Input Ventilation systems are a solution.
What is a PIV system
Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) is an energy efficient method of pushing out and replacing stale unhealthy air with clean drier air, by gently pressurizing the home and increasing the circulation of air. The result is fresh, tempered air that creates a healthy indoor environment – helping to avoid condensation and mould.
Simple day to day activities contribute to moisture generation and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) build up in the home.
The PIV unit dilutes, displaces and replaces dirty moisture laden and stale air with fresh filtered air with a lower moisture content improving the IAQ in the home.
