Vent-Axia’s PureAir Home PIV Rids Bungalow of Severe Condensation

A PureAir Home from leading British ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia has solved the problem of condensation for a couple in Shropshire.

The Vent-Axia PureAir Home Positive Input Ventilation unit (PIV) was installed in Mr and Mrs Hopkins’ two-bedroom bungalow in Shrewsbury. Built in 1982, the couple moved into the bungalow two years’ ago, but had a problem with condensation from the start.

The couple tried using the trickle vents in the PVC double glazing to combat the condensation but this did not work. The condensation problem in the home was so severe that Bruce Hopkins became fed up of mopping the windows with kitchen roll every morning. The couple would also open the windows to increase ventilation but all this did was to make the bungalow cold.

Due to the condensation problem, Bruce bought a humidistat which showed that humidity in the property was 80%. Bruce was determined to find a solution so undertook some research on how to rid a home of condensation. He discovered PIV was the solution, so visited his local electrical wholesaler, Alert Electrical, to buy one.

Since Bruce already had a Vent-Axia extractor fan in his bathroom he chose a Vent-Axia PureAir Home. Bruce arranged for an electrician to install the unit and within two days of installation the condensation had disappeared. To Bruce’s surprise when he checked the humidistat the humidity in the home had dropped to 40%. Since the installation of the PIV, the house has been condensation free.

“Severe condensation was an ongoing problem in our home which I was determined to solve. After researching, the Vent-Axia PureAir Home PIV unit seemed the ideal solution. Since we installed it, we sleep better, feel warmer and our clothes are dryer. Before this PIV everything felt a little damp. The printer paper had waves in it. Now nothing. The air quality is much better too. My wife and I would like to thank Vent-Axia for this product as it has really changed our lives”, explained Bruce Hopkins.

The PureAir Home was installed in their home in the loft. Air is drawn into the PureAir Home unit via the loft from outside and incoming air is filtered via the high-grade ISO ePM10 (G4) or optional upgrade ePM2.5 (F7) filters, removing nasty contaminates before gently introducing it into the habitable areas of the property.

The diffuser directs the airflow upwards where the incoming air mixes with the warm air that gathers at ceiling height. The airflow can be adjusted to meet the needs of a property. This means that when Bruce and Llin extend their home in the near future the airflow can be changed to meet the property’s new needs ensuring condensation will not return.

The PureAir Home PIV offers whole house air purification and humidity control. Designed to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and prevent moisture build-up, the PureAir Home offers a highly effective solution to control condensation and mould, as well as offering high levels of air filtration.

The PureAir Home reduces the risk of health issues in the home by improving IAQ and quickly eradicating conditions that lead to mould growth and associated health issues such as asthma and itchy skin. Providing fresh, tempered air into the home that is drier than the inside air, the PureAir Home creates an indoor environment where condensation and mould find it hard to exist, benefiting occupants and avoiding the damaging effects on the building.

Boasting quick and simple installation the PIV unit is highly energy efficient, unobtrusive, near silent and helps provide a healthy environment. The PureAir Home’s discreet diffuser features Smart Air™ technology, which increases airflow performance by 10% but at a lower noise level compared to traditional diffuser designs, while allowing control over airflow direction. SmartSenseTM control allows quick and accurate set up and an automatic summer shut off stops hot air coming back into the property.
