Using Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) – to reduce Radon levels:

Installing Positive Input ventilation (PIV):

For the last 20 years, experts at the Health Protection Agency (now Public Health England) have warned that work should be carried out in affected buildings to lower the levels.

Installation:
Our engineers have many years of experience in installing Positive Input ventilation Systems (PIV’s) and successfully reducing radon levels to an acceptable concentration.

A Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) system improves the quality of air and reduces levels of contaminants around the home. The technology works by circulating fresh air throughout the home, ensuring there is no build up of damp or contamination that can cause harm to the building and those that live in it.

 

PIV systems help reduce radon gas, stop condensation, mould growth and musty odours in new and existing homes by providing fresh filtered air from a central location in the home.

The units are extremely reliable and low level noise and come with Heat Support and Hall Control, putting you in control of humidity levels within your home.

Radon reduction using loft mounted positive input ventilation:

A loft mounted Positive Input Ventilation Systems (PIV) will provide the necessary ventilation to your entire house by using filtered air from within the loft space.

The radon levels are reduced by adding positive pressure into the property via a hallway ceiling diffuser.

  • Ideal for reducing further reducing radon levels below 500 Bq m-3

  • Also helps to reduce condensation, damp and mould.

  • Improves overall air quality in your property.

  • Low Running Costs

  • Quiet Operation

  • 5 Year manufacturer’s warranty

A loft mounted positive input ventilation unit (PIV), is an effective method of reducing indoor radon concentrations. It involves the installation of a fan, typically in a loft or attic, to slightly increase the air pressure within the property. This reverses the normal pressure ratio so that the air pressure inside the building becomes higher than that in the ground. This will inhibit radon from being drawn inside.

In case there is no loft or attic present, the fan can be installed on the internal side of an external wall as an alternative.

Although there are alternative methods available to reduce radon levels in your home,  positive pressure units are popular as they also improve the overall indoor air quality by reducing the relative humidity. Many properties suffer from condensation and mould growth as a result of high relative humidity, and a positive pressure system can alleviate this. Allergens such as house dust mites, a major aggravator of asthma symptoms, can also be reduced as a welcome side effect.

We’ll supply and install the unit for you. The installation does not require any changes to the structure and will normally be installed within a day.

These units are designed to transform the atmosphere in your home into a fresh, healthy and condensation free environment. The units are extremely reliable and low level noise and come with Heat Support and Hall Control, putting you in control of humidity levels within your home.  

Not only the dangers of Radon gas being present in homes... Mould, damp and condensation are some the peskiest nuisances that can take over your home.  These enduring ventilation systems have become an industry staple. Our Positive Input Ventilation, or PIV, range is trusted by Homeowners, Social Housing providers, New Build developers, and Private Landlords as a cost-effective, whole-house system that prevents condensation and black mould and dilutes radon gas. PIVs can be efficient in reducing radon levels up to and below 500 bqm/3 .

Radon reduction using - Wall Mounted Positive Input Ventilation

Wall-mounted Positive Input Ventilation Systems (PIV) are most effective when used in basements and small properties or flats with radon levels of up to 500 Bq m-3.

Similar to the Loft Mounted Positive Input Ventilation Systems they use filtered external air to create a positive pressure in the property.

These points can be discussed and decided at the Property survey stage.

 

  • Perfect for further reducing radon levels below 500 Bq m-3

  • Helps to reduce condensation

  • Improves air quality in your property.

  • Low Running Costs

  • Quiet Operation

  • 5 Year manufacturer’s warranty

Positive Pressure System Costs:

The cost depends on several factors, including the type and size (airflow capacity) of the system installed, required location of the unit and diffuser(s). Also the availability of an existing electrical supply to the area. We can provide a qualified electrician to install the electrics if required.

Our positive input ventilation fans come with a manufacturer’s warranty and are low maintenance.
