Ventilation

It is important to keep your home ventilated to prevent condensation and dampness. If your house is heated by gas or solid fuel, you must keep all vents clear to prevent a dangerous build-up of carbon monoxide – do not block vents under any circumstances as this could endanger your life.

This video provides advice on ventilating your home.

Positive Input Ventilation Systems

If your property has one of the following Positive Input Ventilation Systems, it is very important that the unit is kept switched on at all times, as there is no other means of ventilation in these homes:

  • Envirovent Dry Eco Heat
  • Nuaire Drimaster
  • Nuaire Sunwarm
  • Nuaire Tilemaster

Abertay has recently completed an overhaul and servicing of these units in the Dunholm Gardens area and is currently carrying out similar works in the North Fintry area.

Positive Input Ventilation Systems provide both ventilation and renewable pre-heating system in one.  Solar collectors in the roof provide heating to the ventilation supply.  The air handling unit in the attic intelligently monitors the temperature of the home and selects the optimum source of fresh air to maintain the desired interior temperature by providing filtered air directly to the central hallway of the home.

Positive Input Ventilation Systems are a very cost effective ventilation renewable solution and can provide over 25% of a home’s space-heating, as well as providing cool air in warmer months. Being classified as Positive Input Ventilation, significantly improves indoor air quality and it takes extremely low power consumption to run these units.

TENANTS SHOULD NEVER SWITCH POSITIVE INPUT VENTILATION SYSTEMS OFF AS DOING SO WILL LEAD TO CONDENSATION AND DAMP ISSUES WITHIN YOUR HOME.

The simple control panel allows the user to set the air temperature manually to either Winter or Summer setting and the system is easy to maintain, as if used correctly only the filters will require replacement by Abertay every 5 years, or so.
