At last! Britain has been blessed with plenty of sunshine over the past week, which can only mean that summer’s on its way. Only thing is; it’s pretty hard to keep cool, especially if you’re spending the day indoors. Imagine if there was a whole house ventilation system that not only reduced humidity levels, but also had the ability to provide efficient perception cooling into your home during warmer weather.
Well, it just so happens that there is: allow us to introduce you to the PIV Air Source. Situated in the loft, the PIV Air Source will draw in cooler air from outside the building when temperature levels exceed 25°c in the loft space. The unit draws air from the atmosphere using a clever temperature-controlled diverter mechanism and replaces humid air with fresh, clean air.
In addition to this added benefit of providing perception cooling, the unit is perfect for those affected by condensation and mould problems throughout the winter months - an all year round asset to the home! The PIV Air Source is also extremely beneficial for those households affected by high levels of Radon.
In the cooler months, the unit also takes full advantage of solar gain from within the loft space where temperatures are on average 3°c higher than outside. This can result in relative savings of around 150 Watt per day in the average family home – equating to around 10% of annual heating costs.
What’s more, the PIV Air Source is powered by the latest Ultra Low Watt Motor technology to ensure minimum energy use - helping households to reduce their carbon footprint even further. If you’re looking for a ventilation solution with similar benefits but need to supply fresh, filtered air into specific areas of the home, look no further! The MIV® Air Source has the ability to supply fresh, filtered air via multiple inputs into areas that needs it the most.
For example, the inputs can be located in the bedroom of an asthma sufferer to reduce the level of humidity, reducing the household dust mite populations (a known trigger for asthma and allergies) or in a living area suffering from particularly bad condensation and mould.
