Survey reveals quick results from ventilation systems

Survey reveals quick results from ventilation systems07/11/2014

A recent survey of 200 homeowners who had bought a ventilation system from EnviroVent revealed how over half of these householders had experienced improvements to their health or home within two weeks of its installation.

Out of 200 customers, all stated that they had seen an improvement to either their homes or their health as a result, with over a third of customers (37%) saying they had experienced improvements to their home or health within a week and just over half had experienced improvements within two weeks or less. The survey also revealed that 1 in 8 home owners had bought a ventilation unit for health reasons, mainly as they suffered with asthma.

91% of people who had bought a ventilation product did so to deal with condensation, which was closely followed by dealing with mould (69%) and a musty or damp smell in the house (32.5%). 95% of the 182 customers who had the unit installed because of condensation noticed an improvement in this.

Rebecca McLean, Marketing Director at EnviroVent, said: “Poor indoor air quality is a problem for many homes, which may trigger or exacerbate health issues associated with respiratory or dermatological problems. Poor ventilation is also an issue for homes too, causing condensation-dampness and mould, which can look unsightly and damage the fabric of the building. It is encouraging to hear that customers experienced improvements to either their health or home so quickly and we are keen to spread the message to other home owners who have put up with stale, musty air in their homes for too long!”

Typical customer comments included: “Our house was so bad with condensation and now we don’t get any at all. The mould has all dried up too and the horrible damp smell that we suffered from for years has gone.”

EnviroVent is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of ventilation systems. The company has over 20 years’ experience in delivering sustainable products that are built to last the life cycle of a building.

As a UK manufacturer, EnviroVent has a network of approved installers throughout the country. The company offers a complete service from survey, design and manufacture, project design, supply, installation and commissioning.

EnviroVent is one of the pioneers of Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) which works by drawing in fresh, filtered clean air from outside, usually the loft, and gently ventilating the home from a central position on a landing or the central hallway in a flat or bungalow. EnviroVent’s range of Mr Venty® products control humidity and moisture levels, so mould and condensation problems are significantly reduced.

The company also offers its own range of Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems, which uses multiple extract points throughout the home to draw moist air out of the kitchen, bathrooms and utility room areas. The MVHR system recovers around 90 per cent of the heat from this outgoing stale air, before feeding it back into the house as warm, fresh, filtered air, controlling relative humidity in the process.
