The MIV® Air Source takes maximum advantage of the benefits of solar gain from the loft space throughout the year. Solar gain is the natural accumulation of heat from the sun on bright days.
Temperatures in the loft are on average 3°C higher than outside and as the unit draws fresh air from the loft and delivers it into the property, this results in a saving of around 500 Kilowatts of energy per year in an average family home - equating to significant savings in annual heating costs. Going beyond traditional input ventilation, the MIV® Air Source has the facility to source cooler air from outside the building when the temperature in the loft space rises above 25°C.
Minimum Energy Consumption
Powered by an Ultra Low Watt Brushless DC Motor, the MIV® Air Source Unit utilises the latest technology to ensure minimum energy consumption and long term trouble free life.
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.
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 MIV® 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 MIV® 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.
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.
The EnviroVent MIV® Loft Mounted 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.
How is it different?
Instead of providing just a single source of fresh air into a property, usually located in a hallway or landing, the MIV® Loft Mounted Unit has the ability to supply fresh, filtered air via multiple inputs into areas with greater requirements for ventilation.
Highly efficient, inputs can be situated in rooms affected by increased levels of humidity, such as the kitchen, bathrooms and other wet rooms.
Fresh air inputs can also be located in bedrooms or living spaces that suffer from particularly bad condensation or in the bedroom of an asthma sufferer to reduce the level of humidity and therefore the house dust mite population - a known trigger for allergies and asthma.
Unique EnviroVent Mini Diffuser
Available with the MIV® Loft Mounted Unit is the stylish EnviroVent energy saving diffuser, providing an innovative alternative to standard ceiling vents. Simple to commission and install, the diffuser is designed with easy to clean filters, which prohibit contaminants entering the property. These also act as a second defence against some pollens and other airbourne contaminants in conjunction with the unit's internal filter. Side panels can be easily blanked off according to its location.
Make it MIV®
Warm air accumulates at ceiling level and is normally lost through windows and extract fans. This air can be up to 7°C higher than the internal air at ground level. By introducing an almost imperceptible fresh air supply into multiple rooms, the MIV® Loft Mounted Unit redistributes heat around the home by pushing the heat back down and keeping the convection currents moving to reduce space heating costs. By saving only 1 degree of heat this multi-zone destratification can cut fuel bills by 10%
Intelligent IQ Controls (optional)
A remote control incorporating five mode settings: trickle, medium, high, boost and auto is available. Auto-mode enables or disables the heater.
