What Vortice PIV products can do to prevent black mould

How Passive Input Ventilation can help with black mould issues

Vortice has launched a new Positive Input Ventilation System (PIV) in both loft and wall versions to help eradicate the issue of mould in the home.   We spend more than 90% of our time indoors and unless we take steps to ventilate our homes correctly, the quality of the air we breathe can be 50 times more polluted than outdoor air, with all the associated health risks.

Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) means that a loft unit continuously draws air through the loft’s natural leakage and ventilation points from outside, then feeds it through a filter into the property via a central hallway diffuser. The wall unit works in the same way but is directly ducted to the outside and situated in the hallway of the property.  By bringing this fresh air in, it reduces the humidity in the home, reducing the opportunity for mould to grow. The main benefit of the VORTICE system for the occupant is the air distribution box accessory; this allows the air to be distributed evenly in the home, reducing the requirement for a heater.

Richard Williams, General Manager of Vortice Ltd explains how Vortice products can help in this second podcast on the subject with BusinessNet Explorer.

The root cause of black mould and what we can do to prevent it

The root cause of black mould and what we can do to prevent it

As homes become more and more airtight in order to make them energy efficient, ensuring good ventilation and indoor air quality is vital for our health. Condensation is a big issue; everyday activities like bathing, cooking, washing and drying our clothes all introduce moisture to the air. This humidity provides a breeding ground for black mould – one of the most dangerous things to our health, causing asthma and breathing difficulties. The only way to treat mould efficiently is to control moisture levels in the air, if you don’t want it to grow, stop watering it.


Richard Williams, General Manager of Vortice Ltd explains the dangers and explores some of the solutions in this first podcast on the subject with BusinessNet Explorer.
