If you have growths of black mould or condensation issues in your property, one of the solutions, is to use positive pressure ventilation systems. The positive pressure ventilation system will extract fresh air from the outside, filter and dry it ambient temperatures, before it is distributed through the ventilation system of the building. This dry air displaces the stale, moist air that promotes the growth of and black causes condensation problems within the framework of the property.
Poor quality of indoor air is often cited as being responsible for health and respiratory problems in what is associated as the sick building syndrome, where occupants can become ill for no apparent reason. Symptoms such as headaches, nose throat or eye irritations, dry or itchy skin, nausea, fatigue, dizziness and sensitivity to odours, all disappear when the complainants leave the building.
The lack of enough ventilation and modern living patterns can contribute to an accumulation of excessive moisture and humidity, which can also result in poor air quality. Increasing ventilation rates and improving air distribution, can often be a cost effective method to reduce the levels of indoor pollutants. HVAC systems should be designed to meet minimum ventilation standards of local building codes. However, many systems are not properly maintained to ensure that the design ventilation rates are supplied.
In many buildings, positive pressure ventilation can eliminate the poor indoor air quality that often leads to serious health concerns. There are a few variations on the types of positive pressure ventilation units, and the type that you use will be determined by the property in which it is installed. The units are usually compact and for single dwelling homes, they can be installed in the loft, in flat and apartments, they can be mounted in the central hallway.
Most of these units are robustly built, and are very efficient users of energy, as they consume as little as 6 watts. Design considerations can include electronic monitoring of the air which can be preheated to set temperatures before redistribution. Not only can the air temperatures be monitored and controlled, but the air flow rates can also be adjusted and maintained. Some units may also include a light indicating that the filter is blocked, and may be need of change.
In addition to creating a healthier living environment, the energy-efficient ventilation systems are very easy to maintain, and operate very quietly as the supply clean dry air that inhibits the formation of condensation and black mould.
