Positive Pressure Ventilation Canberra
Do you need high-quality positive pressure ventilation in Canberra? To help you decide, you need to understand how it works and why it is important.
Positive pressure ventilation works by drawing fresh clean air from outside into your home via a filter that purifies it even more. The Positive Pressure Unit (also known as a PPU) then pushes it gently and continuously through your home, diluting and displacing any stale, moist air thus preventing it from causing condensation and black mould problems. The PPU provides you with a permanent, reliable solution to condensation and black mould problems, general poor air quality, and ventilation issues which can result in damp musty smells.
Positive pressure ventilation provides continuous and quiet ventilation throughout a dwelling, without cold draughts and without affecting the operation of open-flued combustion appliances. Positive Pressure Units are claimed to be an effective means for overcoming condensation and mould problems in existing homes.
Condensation occurs when warm, moist air meets a cold surface such as a window, mirror or wall and causes water droplets to form. It can leave water stains; help rot to set in and cause mildew growth. As property owners have become increasingly energy conscious, they have looked for ways to save energy in the home through insulation, draft proofing, double glazing and blocking off chimneys, all of which has increased the humidity within indoor air. Winter is usually the time when mildew and condensation really become problems.
Mould is a microscopic organism, which is associated with damp and condensation. It can appear on any damp surface such as paint, plaster, wallpaper, or tiles in areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundries, basements, etc. Its appearance is unsightly, and it can appear in various colours – from black to pink to green. Apart from being unsightly, there is growing evidence to suggest that it is also bad for your health, causing headaches and breathing difficulties, as well as nausea and fatigue.

Positive Ventilation System Canberra
Having a good positive ventilation system in Canberra will help you prevent condensation and mould. Condensation, arguably the most common form of dampness, can eventually lead to the growth of mould. It forms on surfaces when the temperature drops sufficiently below the temperature of moist air inside the property. If it is left to develop, condensation can aggravate or trigger health problems such as asthma and other respiratory complaints.
Mould is a recognised allergen and irritant, which releases tiny spores that can travel in the air. These spores often have micro toxins and allergens attached to them and have been identified as a trigger for respiratory problems such as asthma, flu, and fatigue. Mould gradually digests and destroys whatever it grows on.
A positive ventilation system can help prevent condensation and mould by creating a healthy environment through the continuous pumping and circulation of fresh filtered air into your home, forcing stale air out of the gaps and cracks in the fabric of the building. These systems typically comprise a small unit that sits in your loft and is ducted through your landing or hallway ceiling. It is ducted in these areas because they’re communal locations and have direct access to the majority of rooms in your home.
