Title: Positive input ventilation

Ref Code: IP12/00
Authors: R K Stephen

Abstract1: Positive input ventilation is the usual name for systems in which ‘fresh’ air is supplied to a dwelling from the roof space by means of a fan. While there is anecdotal evidence that these units can improve indoor humidity conditions, measurements of performance have been few. This paper summarises results from performance measurements in a BRE test house and in 15 occupied dwellings. It will be of interest to dwelling designers, landlords and domestic property managers.
