Positive Input Ventilation System Installation PIV | Brentwood | Essex | CM13

A customer called Leigh Electrical Contractors as they had been researching how to stop condensation and mould in their house and came across our website. They had recently purchased an old Victorian terrace house which was suffering from pretty much every sort of damp and condensation known to man.

We explained to the customer that the installation of a proper ventilation system including a PIV unit was the best and easiest way to get rid of mould and condensation.

When we arrived at the property the homeowner showed us the problems that they were facing not just from condensation and mould but also from rising damp and damp coming through the walls from blocked drainpipes. This had all lead to the property being in a rather sorry state!

Leigh Electrical Contractors recommended a local damp company that we work closely with and a general builder to knock off the plaster on the walls and renew the guttering outside. The loft had also been sprayed in the past with foam insulation which had also lead to the rise in humidity levels as it had stopped the loft breathing and the flow of air through the house.

The mould was in every room and completely covered the walls and ceilings we advised the customer that after an Envirovent PIV loft unit is fitted the air would be circulated round the property so that the mould wouldn’t be be able to form. This movement of air prevents the water vapour from turning into droplets on colder surfaces like windows.

The next recommendation Leigh Electrical Contractors made was to install a new Envirovent in-line fan located in the loft for the main bathroom and the en-suite shower room.

As the fan is located in the loft it can be a lot bigger and more powerful then a wall unit, theĀ  fans are wired into the lighting circuit so that when the lights are turned on the fans operates, when the lights are turned off the timer starts and runs on for 20 minutes completely clearing the room of steam.

A new Envirovent trickle fan was installed in the kitchen, the trickle fan works like a mini PIV unit so runs 24/7 and then has a boost button so that the fan can go on to boost mode when the tenant is cooking. This eliminates the steam from the kitchen but also helps the air flow through the house as it pulls the air through to the outside.

The customer was very keen to start the work so that she could finally start living in a fresh house with no mould! The work was booking in and completed in 1 day.
