PIV Air Source

Whole House Positive Input Ventilation Unit

PIV Air Source

Beyond traditional input ventilation, the PIV Air Source unit has the facility to source cooler air from outside the building when the temperature in the loft space rises above 25°C. Detecting the rise in temperature, the unit starts to draw air from atmosphere via a temperature controlled diverter mechanism. This not only provides efficient perception cooling into the property during warmer weather, but also maintains the required level of ventilation continuously throughout the year. This facility is greatly beneficial for properties affected by high levels of radon gas emissions.

Energy saving benefits

Minimum Energy Consumption

Powered by an Ultra Low Watt Brushless DC Motor, the PIV Air Source Unit utilises the latest technology in positive input ventilation to ensure minimum energy consumption and long term trouble free life.

Solar Gain

The unit takes maximum advantage of the benefits of solar gain from within the loft space - the natural accumulation of heat from the sun on bright days. Temperatures in the loft space are on average 3°C higher than outside, which results in a relative saving of around 150 Watts per day in an average modern family home. This equates to approximately 10% of annual heating costs.

Heat Distribution

Warm air accumulates at ceiling level. This air can be up to 7°C higher than the internal air at ground level. By introducing an almost imperceptible air supply into the dwelling from the loft space, the PIV Air Source unit helps to redistribute heat around the home and thus reduce space heating costs.

No Need To Open Windows

To reduce humidity and condensation during the heating season, significant energy loss occurs by opening windows. By installing an PIV Air Source Unit and providing fresh filtered air to the home humid air is displaced without opening windows and thus making significant savings to the occupier.

Health Benefits

With improved building features in our homes, such as cavity wall insulation, double glazing and draught proofing, 'natural ventilation' is prohibited. Stale air is trapped causing streaming windows, which ultimately leads to musty smells, dampness and mould growth. These mould spores are known allergens and become airborne at the slightest disturbance. The microscopic spores are then inhaled and can trigger respiratory problems such as asthma, dust allergies and hayfever.Asthma & Mould Allergies

The PIV Air Source Unit draws fresh air into the dwelling from outside and filters it before being delivered into the property. Moisture-laden air is diluted, displaced and replaced with clean, tempered and filtered air. This eliminates or reduces surface condensation, which causes mould growth, providing a significant improvement in the health of asthma sufferers and general indoor air quality.

Low Life-cycle Costs

With 5 year on-going maintenance free warranties and superior long life filters the PIV Air Source unit achieves the lowest life-cycle costing. All repairs, maintenance and component replacement is carried out simply and quickly by exchanging the filters and consumable items. The worn out components are then taken back to the factory to be recycled thus reducing the impact on landfill and saving millions of pounds in replacement costs.

Intelligent IQ Controls (optional)

The PIV Air Source also comes with an optional remote control, incorporating five mode settings: trickle, medium, high, boost and auto is available. Auto-mode enables or disables the heater.

Pre-Heater and Hours Run Meter

The integral pre-heater is designed to temper the incoming air during periods of low external temperatures. A sensor monitors incoming air and pulses the heater to ensure temperatures are held to pre-set minimums. Two independent safety cut-out devices shut down the heater in the event of fan failure. The heater facility is controlled independently from the fan by a conveniently positioned enable/disable switch. For monitoring of operational life and verification of usage, an integral Hours Run Meter is fitted.
