Positive pressure ventilation
The ultimate in condensation treatment, our positive pressure ventilation system is designed to provide a reliable solution to condensation, black mould and air quality issues within the whole property; ensuring that damp, stale air does not have an opportunity to fester within a home.
How positive pressure ventilation works
The positive pressure ventilation system draws in fresh air that is filtered and dried at an ambient temperature. This dry air is then gently introduced into the property continuously creating positive pressure by diluting and displacing the stale, moist air that would cause condensation and black mould issues within the property.
Why positive pressure ventilation unit may be required
Lack of adequate ventilation and modern occupancy styles can lead to a build up of excessive humidity and moisture. This poor indoor air quality can lead to serious health issues for asthma and allergy sufferers and those with breathing difficulties.

Types of positive pressure ventilation units
Two versions of our positive pressure systems are available. Depending on the type of property really determines the best systems for you. They are either mounted in the loft or for flats and apartments in the central hallway.
Loft Installation - positive pressure ventilation
A loft unit is fitted in the roof void and ducted via an air diffuser, normally mounted in the ceiling above a stairwell. For units fitted with pre heat facility, the heater control switch is sited on the landing wall at a convenient height to enable the user to switch the heater on or off. Also, the fan speed control is set from this position.
Hallway installation - positive pressure ventilation
The flat unit is fitted on a convenient wall, as close to the intake point as possible. Ideally, the unit should be fitted inside a hall cupboard, where access to an external wall and ambient air is possible. Supply ducting is then run to an outlet air grille, normally situated in the hall, in order that the introduced air is delivered to a central point within the dwelling.
