  • MIV Air Source

    MIV® Air Source

    Going beyond traditional input ventilation, the MIV® Air Source has the facility to source cooler air from outside the building when the temperature in the loft space rises above 25°C. Detecting the rise in temperature, the unit starts to draw air from atmosphere via a temperature controlled diverter mechanism. This not only provides efficient perception cooling into the property during warmer weather, but also maintains the required level of ventilation continuously throughout the year. This facility is greatly beneficial for properties affected by high levels of Radon.

    Health benefits

    Moisture-laden air is diluted, displaced and replaced with clean, tempered and filtered air. This eliminates or reduces surface condensation, which causes mould growth, providing a significant improvement in the health of asthma sufferers and general indoor air quality.

    Energy efficiency

    Energy efficiency

    The unit takes maximum advantage of the benefits of solar gain from within the loft space - the natural accumulation of heat from the sun on bright days. Temperatures in the loft space are on average 3°C higher than outside, which results in a relative saving of around 150 Watts per day in an average modern family home. This equates to approximately 10% of annual heating costs.

  • How PIV works

    The solution is Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) or MIV®. The EnviroVent positive ventilation units are sophisticated whole home ventilation and condensation control units. By drawing in fresh, filtered and clean air from outside, the units gently ventilate the home from a central position on a landing in a house or the central hallway in a flat or bungalow.

    Moisture laden air is diluted, displaced and replaced to control humidity levels around 55%. This significantly reduces or eliminates surface condensation, the main cause for mould growth. With lower humidity levels, dust mite populations are also substantially reduced to provide a significant improvement in the health of asthma sufferers and general indoor air quality.

    MIV® Air Source
    Number 1

    Shortly after the unit is installed:

    The unit gently ventilates the home with fresh air. Air is pushed back down into the house and redistributed. Humidity is replaced and diluted to leave a healthy, fresh and clean environment to live in.

    Number 2

    House is now free from contaminants

    The units transform a stagnant, stale atmosphere into a fresh, healthy and condensation free environment.

    Long Life Filters

    Long Life Filters

    The unit is provided with superior long life G4 filters that prevent pollen amd other airborn particles entering the property. The filter will last five years and after this period the filter can be easily replaced.

    Solar gain & summer cooling

    Solar gain & summer cooling

    The MIV® Air Source takes maximum advantage of the benefits of solar gain from the loft space throughout the year.

    Solar gain is the natural  accumulation of heat from the sun on bright days. Temperatures in the loft are on average 3°C higher than outside resulting in a saving of around 50 Kilowatts of energy per year in an average family home.

    The MIV® Air Source automatically draws air from atmosphere via a temperature controlled diverter mechanism as soon as the air loft rise above 25c maintaining the required level of ventilation continuously throughout the year.

    MIV® Multiple Input Ventilation



    MIV® Multiple Input Ventilation

    MIV has the ability to supply fresh; filtered air via multiple inputs into areas with greater requirements for ventilation Fresh air inputs can be located in areas generating higher humidity (kitchen, bathrooms, en-suites etc) or in bedrooms of an asthma/allergy sufferer.

    This product comes with a 5 year guaranteee. All repairs, maintenance and component replacement is carried out simply and quickly by exchanging the filters and consumable items. The worn out components are then taken back to the factory to be recycled thus reducing the impact on landfill and saving millions of pounds in replacement costs.

  • Technical Specification

    Product

    Whole house multiple input ventilation system for properties with a loft space.

    Applications

    During warmer months of the year when the temperature in the loft space exceeds 25°C, the MIV® Air Source has the additional facility to draw air from atmosphere via a temperature controlled diverter mechanism. This provides efficient perception cooling into the property and maintains the required level of ventilation continuously throughout the year.
