The AXCO positive ventilation units are sophisticated energy efficient whole home ventilation and condensation control units designed to continuously gently ventilate the home from a central position on the landing or the central hallway.
Moisture-laden air is diluted, displaced and replaced with subtle fresh filtered air, forcing contaminants out of the property through leakages or extract points in wetrooms (if applicable). A PIV system is the ideal solution for condensation and mould issues in existing homes.
- Eliminate condensation & mould growth
- Stop streaming windows
- Improve Indoor Air Quality
- Remove musty odours
- Save energy
- No need for trickle / window vents if dwelling air tightness level is above Level 5
- Aids radon dispersion
- Suitable for existing and new homes
With improved building features in our homes, such as cavity wall and room insulation, double glazing and draught proofing ‘natural ventilation’ is reduced. Stale air is trapped causing streaming windows and high moisture, which ultimately leads to musty smells, dampness and mould growth. These mould spores are known allergens and become airborne at the slightest disturbance which can be inhaled and can trigger respiratory problems such as asthma, dust allergies and hayfever.
The Axco positive ventilation units draw fresh air into the dwelling and filters it before being gently delivered into the property. Moisture laden air is diluted, displaced and replaced with clean, tempered and filtered air. This promotes free air circulation and eliminates or reduces surface condensation, which causes mould growth, providing a significant improvement in the health of asthma sufferers and general indoor air quality.
Powered by an Ultra Low Watt Brushless DC Motor, the Axco positive ventilation units utilise the latest technology to ensure minimum energy consumption and long term trouble free life, achieving up to 80% more efficiency than a traditional AC fan.
Warm air accumulates at ceiling level. This air can be up to 7°C higher temperature than the internal air at floor level. By introducing a subtle filtered air supply into the dwelling, the unit helps to redistribute heat around the home and thus reduce space heating costs. In weather conditions below 10ºC, the incoming air is lightly heated to prevent cold draughts.
During the heating season significant energy loss occurs by opening windows to reduce humidity and condensation. By installing a positive ventilation system and providing fresh filtered air to the home humid air is displaced without opening windows and thus making a significant saving to the occupier.
