PureAir Home from Vent-Axia has proven to be the perfect solution in a home suffering from severe condensation. The Lo-Carbon PureAir Home Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit with heater was installed in the Rudling’s three-bedroom detached home in Colchester, Essex. Bought as a new build in 1985, the condensation problem was so severe that the homeowners were using a window vac and towels to mop up the condensation daily. Since the installation of the PIV, the house has been condensation free.
The PureAir Home unit with integrated heater was installed by Mr Rudling, a qualified electrician, who found it easy to install due to the electrical connection. It has been installed in their loft. Air is drawn into the PureAir Home unit via the loft from outside and incoming air is filtered via the high-grade ISO ePM10 or ePM2.5 filters removing nasty contaminates before gently introducing it into the habitable areas of the property. The diffuser directs the airflow upwards where the incoming air mixes with the warm air that gathers at ceiling height.
“This bit of kit is absolutely amazing; it’s been a life changer! We have not had a single bit of condensation since installing. I really cannot say enough about its excellent performance and how our house is condensation free – I love it”, says Mrs Rudling. “I no longer spend my mornings vacuuming my windows and mopping up pools of water on windowsills. I now spend every morning driving to work looking for houses with bad condensation and saying to myself ‘they need a Vent-Axia!!’ I cannot tell you how impressed my hubby and I are. I honestly feel I want to be a salesperson for this truly amazing PIV.”
The PureAir Home PIV offers whole house air purification and humidity control. Designed to improve IAQ and prevent moisture build-up, the PureAir Home offers a highly effective solution to control condensation and mould, as well as offering high levels of air filtration. The PureAir Home reduces the risk of health issues in the home by improving indoor air quality and quickly eradicating conditions that lead to mould growth and associated health issues such as asthma and itchy skin. Providing fresh, tempered air into the home that is drier than the inside air, the PureAir Home creates an indoor environment where condensation and mould find it hard to exist, benefiting occupants and avoiding the damaging effects on the building.
Boasting quick and simple installation, the PIV unit is highly energy efficient, unobtrusive, near silent and helps provide a healthy environment. The PureAir Home’s discreet diffuser features Smart Air technology, which increases airflow performance by 10% but at a lower noise level compared to traditional diffuser designs, while allowing control over airflow direction. SmartSenseTM control allows quick and accurate set up and an automatic summer shut off stops warm air coming back into the property.
