Alternative to dehumidifiers for condensation problems06/10/2011

It is a common thought that dehumidifiers are a cure for condensation in a property. Yes they do take the moisture out of the air, but there are a number of drawbacks. 

  • Dehumidifiers are only effective where they are placed and do not offer a whole house solution.
  • Dehumidifiers can be very noisy and they are usually turned off at night - when humidity levels rise.
  • They are expensive to run and uneconomical.
  • By removing all the moisture out of the air, the room can be left too dry causing further health problems.

An alternative to uneconomical dehumidifiers

Positive Input Ventilation(PIV) is a complete whole house ventilation solution which combats condensation and mould problems within your home. Not only does Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) provide an effective solution to condensation and mould problems but they are also energy efficient too - costing less that £6 a year to run.

How does Positive Input Ventilation work? 

PIV units work by delivering fresh, filtered and clean air into the home, gently ventilating it using a technique called Positive Input Ventilation (PIV). This method dilutes high levels of humidity and harmful household contaminates which include Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs),  created by the use of aerosols and formaldehydes which are found in furniture and carpets, chemicals from cleaning products and allergens from house dust mites. Furthermore, PIV units can be beneficial to people who suffer from asthma and allergies. High levels of relative humidity create a perfect breeding ground for the household dust mite, a known trigger for asthma and allergies.

So why not consider a PIV unit to control problems with condensation and black mould? 

Enjoy the autumn and winter months in a healthier home.
