New PIV unit to cut home condensation


17 April 2018
Elta Fans says its new intelligent Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit will provide a more flexible and energy efficient way to manage the risk of condensation in the home.

The SANO Intelligent PIV unit can automatically adjust air flow according to the temperature and moisture content of the incoming air.
The Eco-LoFlo mode checks moisture content when the incoming air is less than 10°C to reduce airflow to minimum, and provide the most energy efficient, ventilation rates. By using this function, occupants can benefit from improved comfort levels, as well as reduced demand on their heating. Additional Normal and Summer modes, plus the ability to override the unit’s automatic controls, ensure performance can always match user preference.

The SANO Intelligent PIV is available in both a loft and wall-mounted unit. The loft-mounted model boasts a low maintenance large G4 grade filter, while the wall-mounted equivalent contains a G2 filter.

Six different settings can be chosen by the installer from the wall-mounted unit’s integral controls, with a further two speed settings available on the loft-mounted version. This ensures each unit can be fine-tuned to suit the size, layout, thermal properties, and moisture production of the home.

John Bradley, Head of Sales at Elta Group Building Services, said: “PIV technology has largely remained the same for decades, so it’s with some excitement that we can unveil a PIV unit that marks such a significant leap forward. Social housing providers in particular can have full faith in the unit’s ability to control condensation without compromising occupants’ comfort levels or energy bills.”
