Vent-Axia Pozidry Fan improves indoor air for Crawley Council tenant

Vent-Axia has helped Crawley Borough Council to improve the indoor environment of a tenant’s home by supplying a Lo-Carbon PoziDry Compact fan. Crawley Borough Council consulted Vent-Axia when a tenant’s home had a problem with condensation, mould and damp. Vent-Axia provided a Pozidry fan as a solution and within just two months of the installation the problem was resolved.

The Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) compact system was recommended for the tenant’s property following a survey by Vent-Axia which identified that moisture levels in the property were high and not being removed effectively. The property needed a solution that would ensure the moist air was replaced by dryer fresh air. It was proposed that the Lo-Carbon PoziDry Compact was installed in the hallway combined with a mechanical fresh air vent in the bedroom. After the system was installed the results were almost instant.

The fan works by drawing in fresh air from outside via an external inlet and through a short length of duct, filtering it through an integral, high capacity, washable filter and gently introducing it into the dwelling via a discreet wall mounted grille. This directs the airflow upwards where the incoming air mixes with the warm air that gathers at ceiling height. The unit can be used for air replacement when combined with an extractor fan. The system provides fresh, filtered, tempered air into the home and creates a healthy indoor environment helping to avoid condensation and mould, benefiting both the occupants and the structure of the building.

The system uses the latest Lo-Carbon technology motor with a backward curved impeller resulting in increased efficiency, lower running costs, a reduced carbon footprint and ultra-low noise levels.
