We use a market leading Positive Input Ventilation system specifically designed to reduce the humidity and therefore eradicate condensation and mould from your property.
The Nuaire Flatmaster is designed for properties with no loft space such as ground floor flats, properties with cathedral ceilings or flat roofs. Once installed, it draws filtered air from outside (with the more expensive versions heating the air as well) and dilutes, displaces and replaces all of the wet, damp air in the property. The fan speed is adjusted to suit the size of your property to create approximately twenty air volume changes a day. The benefits are exceptionally low running costs, reduced radon levels and reduced allergen levels.
Being hard-wired into a dedicated, un-switched, fused spur, it runs completely automatically with the added benefit that tenants can’t easily turn it off!
We were called out to a farm between Redruth and Helston where a converted single storey stone building with cathedral ceilings had major condensation and black mould problems. Previous tenants had been using a tumble dryer indoors without no external venting, drying clothes on radiators and not opening any windows so humidity levels were very high.
We were able to install a Flatmaster, with air ducted from outside, by removing a stone above an old window opening and fitting a short inlet pipe with grill.
Within a few days, noticeable improvements were felt in the air quality with the levels of condensation and mould growth significantly reduced. The owners are overjoyed with their new system and are confidently looking forward to a total lack of complaints about "damp" from their new tenants!
Once you have decided to go ahead, we revisit the property, install the system (this usually takes 3-4 hours including leaving everything clean and tidy), set the correct fan level for the size of dwelling and let you enjoy all the benefits a reduced humidity level will bring.
Within a few days you will see a measurable reduction in condensation levels – no more black mould! Shortly after installation, our fully qualified electrician will inspect the new fused spur, check the altered wiring circuit back to the consumer unit and issue an "electrical minor works" certificate – this inspection and certification is included in the quoted price.
The basic fully installed Flatmaster system costs £725.
We guarantee that if, within one month of installation, the system is not working to your full satisfaction we will remove it (leaving the blocked-off inlet grill in place) and refund your money in full. The system also comes with a 5 year (one year parts & labour plus four years parts only) manufactures guarantee.
The system is extremely energy efficient, using a three speed fan that, even on full power, uses only 10 watts of electricity per hour. The fan is powerful enough to ventilate a three bedroom apartment but will be set for optimum performance in your property.
Installed in a typical two bedroom size flat, the running costs will be in the region of 15p-30p per week.
The filtered input air is discharged upwards towards the ceiling, usually in a central hallway, and creates thermal circulation currents in your already warmed air, making your existing heating system run more efficiently. Since the energy required to heat dry air is much less than the energy required to heat the same volume of "wet" air, your property will be warmer and the energy bill will be reduced.
With such low running costs occupiers hardly notice it is even there - apart from the vastly improved air quality and the lack of any mould!
