Reactive Maintenance

Reactive Maintenance

When something goes wrong this often involves carrying out reactive maintenance. When it comes to ventilation, we can help you solve the problem quickly and easily, allowing you to make sure the resident’s welfare comes first and your property is protected moving forward.

Many social housing providers have seen the concept of a ‘first time fix’ as an important facet of their repairs service. For those delivering the repairs service, multiple visits to a property to complete a single repair are time-consuming and inefficient. Optimising time and efficiency makes a staggering difference and here at Vent-Axia, we develop products that help to maximise first time fix rate.

Mould on a wall

Understanding the problem

Not all mould problems can be treated in the same way. The solution can be different depending on where the mould occurs. This can range from simply increasing the flow rate of your existing fan, replacing an incorrectly specified fan or fitting a positive input ventilation unit.

Indoor Air Quality

According to a report conducted by National Institute for Health and Welfare in 2013, poor IAQ is reported to have an annual cost to the UK of over 204,000 healthy life years, with 45% of those lost to cardiovascular diseases, 23% to asthma and allergy, and 15% to lung cancer. Modern, air-tight buildings present issues for IAQ. Whilst this is advantageous for the energy efficiency of a building, without appropriate ventilation they are prone to the accumulation of air pollutants, resulting in poor IAQ. Ventilation can help improve IAQ and resident well-being.

Condensation and the damp mould that goes with it, blights many homes across the UK. It is therefore important for social landlords to protect their housing stock against condensation and mould. Ventilation can help to control the humidity in your housing eliminating the problem at source.

Disrepair cases

Disrepair cases

Disrepair cases associated with condensation and mould can lead to resident ill health and damage to assets, not to mention costs that can run into thousands of pounds. For social housing landlords this can be an expensive issue. Using our Smart Sense™ technology you can track real-time data such as how often the fan is triggered by humidity. This information can then be used to work with residents to resolve and help avoid costly disrepair cases.

Positive Input Ventilation - Designed to control condensation and mould

Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) is designed to control condensation in homes. It offers a highly effective solution to eradicate mould and improve indoor air quality. Operating by drawing in fresh, tempered air from the loft, our PoziDry Pro™ PIV unit introduces drier air into the home therefore reducing the moisture in the air. This fresh air is filtered before being bought into the home creating a healthy indoor environment and reducing the risk of condensation and mould, benefiting both the occupants and the structure of the building.
