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.
