After purchasing a 1980s bungalow in August 2019, Joy Ballance was shocked to discover black mould in the corners, on the ceiling and along the skirting boards of her new home.

Following consultation, she found that the problem had arisen due to condensation caused by poor ventilation.

A Breath of Fresh Air with a Beam PIV System

Joy and her family knew that BEAM was the best choice for their ventilation needs.

I chose BEAM as I knew they were a reputable company who I had heard of for many years. Past customers also recommended them to me. We visited their stand at the Self-Build NI show where we were able to speak to a consultant and discuss our needs”

The family decided after meeting with their local BEAM representative that a BEAM Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) System was the perfect solution to provide their home with suitable ventilation.

A PIV system ventilates the home from a central location on the landing or central hallway. The system dilutes and displaces stale, moist air in the home and replaces it with fresh filtered air.

Happy, Healthy Home

Poor ventilation caused by double glazing, insulation, and draught proofing, can be harmful to both your home and your health.

As in Joy’s home, condensation can form which eventually leads to mould growth. For those with lung conditions, such as asthma, mould can be particularly dangerous as it can trigger an asthma attack.

One of Joy’s favourite things about their BEAM PIV system is that it “promotes air circulation while providing relief for asthma and allergy sufferers.” Joy, whose son suffers from asthma, has noticed “a substantial decrease in his need for his inhalers” since their PIV system was installed.

The PIV was installed on a Friday morning and by the Saturday morning we had no condensation on our windows”

A BEAM PIV system is not just a quick fix; Joy and her family will continue to see the results of the system for many years to come.

3 years on we still do not have any further issues with condensation or black mould.”

Not only is Joy over the moon that the PIV system has rid her home of condensation and mould, but she is delighted that there is “no draught, no noise and it’s not an eyesore.” She describes it as their "breath of fresh air."

The installation of a BEAM PIV system in her home has meant that Joy has been able to continue her renovation journey without looking back!
