Positive Input Ventilation System | Hackney
Leigh Electrical Contractors have been working more and more in landlord properties in and around London wanting to make their properties safer for their tenants.
Black mould caused by condensation is very dangerous as the spores affect your breathing highlighted by the tragic death of Awaab Ishak who died in a rental property where the landlord wouldn’t address the damp problem caused by condensation.
Leigh Electrical Contractors attended the property and undertook a full and in depth survey. Like many of the ex council houses we have visited in the area there is no insulation in the walls so the condensation is produced when the warm air from inside the house hits the cold walls.
Although the bathroom had an extractor fan fitted on the wall it was old and not fit for purpose so the steam from the shower was adding to the moister already present in the air.
Leigh Electrical Contractors advised the landlord that the best and and most cost effective, and efficient 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.
An Envirovent in line fan was also recommended to replace the inadequate fan in the bathroom. The new fan would be fitted in the loft with a 4″ round vent in the ceiling above the shower. The fan would then be ducted out of the roof eves this would clear the bathroom of steam so that it couldn’t add to the condensation problem.
The job was booked in and the work was carried out the same week so that the landlord could have peace of mind that his tennats were safe and free from condensation and mould.
As with all Leigh Electrical installations, the work is covered via the NICEIC Platinum Promise Guarantee. The Platinum Promise is a guarantee provided by the NICEIC that covers the electrical work completed by their registered contractors ( such as Leigh Electrical ) for a full 6 years following completion of the work.
