Properties with high humidity levels, condensation and mould are linked to poor quality or unsuitable ventilation being installed which isn’t performing correctly, leading to constant maintenance repairs needing to be carried out.

Signs of a poorly ventilated home include musty air, streaming windows, persistent mould growth and increasing decorating costs, with stale air containing bad smells, smoke, moisture and excessive heat and heightening the chance of tenants spreading colds, flu and airborne diseases.

Unhealthy indoor environments can increase the chances of airborne spores and allergens becoming prominent in the home, leading to long term health implications such as asthma and respiratory illnesses.

 

The 5 steps to a proactive ventilation strategy:

1] Where

As part of a Ventilation Review, a Greenwood Assessor will ask simple questions to understand the current ventilation situation – what products; issues and costs are being utilised for both planned and reactive maintenance.

2] Why

Is a fan just a fan? A Greenwood Assessor will discuss ventilation effectiveness and what variables impact on how an individual fan performs.

3] What

A Greenwood Assessor will discuss each individual housing stock and the needs and wants of the tenants – problem properties, different installations, and low energy?

4] How

Once the Assessor understands the specific situation, they will recommend an adaptive, flexible and tailored approach or solution for the future.

 

5] Action

A free trial can then be arranged across a housing stock.

Adaptive Ventilation

Adaptive Ventilation is Greenwood Airvac’s new long energy initiative, designed to focus on underlying issues that cause damp and condensation.
