Positive Input Ventilation System Installation PIV | Chelmsford | Essex | CM1

Positive Input Ventilation System PIV | Chelmsford | Essex | CM1

Leigh Electrical Contractors were called by a regular customer who is a landlord in Chelmsford who had a large Edwardian house that they were currently renting out. The tenant was complaining about condensation in all of the bedrooms, bathroom and on the large stain glass window on the landing.

The condensation was causing black in the main bedroom and was really bad behind the wardrobe causing damage to the tenants clothes. Without proper ventilation homes can have a higher humidity levels and the moisture which is unable to escape and creates condensation leading to damp, mould and overall poor indoor air quality.

Unfortunately 1 in 5 homes in Britain suffer from the effects of condensation, a free home survey from Leigh Electrical Contractors can give you a relatively simple yet permanent solution for getting rid of condensation and mould.

Mould will keep coming back in your property unless you deal with the root cause of the condensation and tackle the humidity in the air. What’s more it can also affect your health and immune system, causing headaches, breathing difficulties, nausea, fatigue and even trigger respiratory problems and asthma.

This was the cause of the tragic death of Awaab Ishak which could of easily been avoided with by installing a PIV unit or other ventilation products. He died as a result of the rouge landlord refusing to tackle their mould problem in the rented accommodation which is a truly awful and avoidable.

The landlord had become more and more worried about their property and wanted it to be safe for their tenant so called Leigh Electrical Contractors. We have specialised in ventilation for over 10 years we have a vast knowledge of different ventilation systems and have worked closely with Envirovent to provide a damp prevention service to the local area.

Leigh Electrical Contractors attended the property and the water could be seen running down the stain glass window and pooling on the window seals. The mould could be smelt in the air as we entered the house and got stronger as we went up to the bedrooms.

The humidity of the air was not being helped by the fact that the main bathroom didn’t have an extractor fan, the bathroom is one of the main sources of humidity in the home so needed to be addressed.

After a full and in depth survey the landlord was advised that the best and and most cost effective, way of preventing mould and condensation was to install a PIV unit in the loft. The best PIV unit by far is the Envirovent system. The PIV will circulate the air round the house and a Envirovent Inline will tackle the steam created in the bathroom.

Being a local family run company we were able to book the PIV install in for the same week as the survey. The landlord was happy to tell us on our follow up visit that the Envirovent system had got rid of all the condensation and once the black mould was wiped off it had not returned.
