BEAM Loft Mounted Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit

The loft mounted PIV 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 3oC higher than outside, and as the loft mounted unit draws fresh air from the loft and delivers it into the property via the innovative diffuser, this results in a relative saving of around 150 Watts of heat energy per day in an average modern family home.

Designed to run continuously, the loft mounted unit dilutes, displaces and replaces moisture laden air with fresh filtered air, forcing contaminants out of the property through natural cracks and leakages. Indoor air is improved, eliminating condensation and mould growth, generating fresh filtered air throughout.

L. Kirk, Ballyclare - Customer Review

"Couldn't have had better service from the moment I phoned until our PIV system was fixed. We had the PIV system for approximately 8 years (fitted by Housing Ex) and didn't realise just how good it was until it stopped working! Within 5 days of the PIV being off we had black spots starting in the bedrooms and lots of condensation on the windows. BEAM came out and fixed the system quickly and we have dry windows every morning and no more damp. Personally think that one of these systems should be fitted by all home owners and landlords."
