Why You Should Install a Home Ventilation Solution


By EnviroVent Apr 25, 2019

We all know the importance of ensuring your house is well insulated; a warm and dry home, reduction in energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint so a happy environment. However, did you know that in order to well insulate your home the installation must act as a moisture barrier therefore trapping moisture which can cause condensation which leads to damp and mould. 

Of course you want to insulate your home as best possible but your property also needs to breathe and installing a ventilation system will allow that to happen. 

The effect of not having good quality air in the home is dramatic. The average person spends 90% of their time indoors and 70% of this time is spent in their own home. The indoor living environment is therefore crucial to the health of the occupants.

It is crucial to maintain an adequately ventilated home. There are as many as 900 toxins polluting the air inside our homes, so it is important to ensure you take measures to improve the indoor air quality. Furthermore ventilation defeats condensation. If condensation occurs over a prolonged period of time, other signs will start to appear such as damp patches on walls, peeling wallpaper and ultimately black mould growth.

Condensation is arguably the most common form of damp issue found in the home with 1 in 5 properties throughout the UK affected. When warm, moist air comes into contact with either a surface or air that is colder than it is, the warm air is unable to retain the same amount of moisture as it did and the water is released either into the cold air or onto the colder surface, causing condensation to form.

Before the days of double glazing, wall and loft insulation this humid, stale air would find its escape route through ill-fitting windows and doors, lofts and so on. It would be replaced by fresher, colder air or to you and me - a draught.

1 in 5 UK homes suffer from mould and condensation problems. Unless the problem is dealt with professionally it will come back to haunt you time and time again. 

A Permanent Solution 

At EnviroVent, we have a range of products that can help to keep your home well-ventilated and mould free. For badly-ventilated kitchens and bathrooms, it is definitely worth installing an extractor fan, such as our Cyclone 7. It effectively tracks and detects water vapour in the atmosphere and comes with a 7-year guarantee, so you can relax in the knowledge that your home is a safe and spore-free environment.

We also have a range of condensation control units to suit your individual needs. Our whole house ventilation systems remove moisture and dampness from the air caused by cold in the winter, and will also work to cool rooms down in the summer, preventing water vapour caused by humidity. We have condensation control units specifically designed for loft spaces and flats and apartments, as well as more traditional houses.

If you want to improve the indoor air quality in your home, we recommend our single room heat recovery unit. Using state-of-the-art technology, it simultaneously retains heat within your home and provides fresh air from outside through internal tubes, meaning that you can feel the benefits of opening your windows without increasing your chances of condensation.

All of our products are energy efficient and make your home a more eco-friendly place by utilising the air up to 75% more than under ordinary circumstances.
