Nuaire Flatmaster
Cure condensation dampness and remove allergens and pollutants from the home with the low-energy ventilation system, from the inventors of PIV. The Nuaire Flatmaster 2000 offers a low-cost, whole home ventilation with additional heating (option) for homes without lofts. The Nuaire Flatmaster Units are the cheapest "Supply and Fit price" in the UK at £690.00 + VAT non Heated or £780.00 + VAT Heated.  
Nuaire Drimaster
Our positive input ventilation systems will eliminate all toxic black mould and air induced dampne The Nuaire Drimaster system offers cost-effective, whole home ventilation for two and three story homes with lofts. The Nuaire Drimaster offers a low-cost, whole home ventilation with additional heating (option) the Units are the cheapest "supply and Fit price" in the UK at £690.00 + VAT, heated Units £780.00 + VAT 
Nuaire 365
The Nuaire DRIMASTER 365 offers all year round, cost-effective whole home ventilation with intelligent heat recovery. The originators of Positive Input Ventilation, Nuaire has developed this unique, low energy ventilation system to keep your property condensation free and at the optimum temperature, 356 days a year.
Condensation dampness is more common than you may think particularly in older homes, and as winter sets in and temperature starts to drop many of us will notice the problem Nuaire products control condensation. The range includes Nuaire Flatmaster 2000, Nuaire Drimaster and Nuaire Drimaster 365.

Rising Damp Condensation Control UK 0800 622 6573

Our mission is to control damp in buildings; but we openly acknowledge that most damp situations are actually condensation.

However, condensation is often misdiagnosed as rising damp, by both professional Chartered Surveyors and the industry as a whole. This has resulted in unnecessary treatments for rising damp, damage to buildings structures and decorations that could be simply resolved by installing positive input ventilation (PIV) system potentially saving thousands of pounds for the homeowner.

The situation is compounded by the fact that the rising damp treatment will not cure the condensation problem and the original problem could reoccur to the frustration of the contractor and home owner alike, causing more unnecessary damage, expense and bad feelings.

Condensation accounts for most damp issues, the remaining situations are normally ground level issues, lateral or penetrating damp. The occurrence of rising damp itself is rare indeed, to quantify approximately one survey report out of ten will reveal true rising damp. 

We accept rising damp does appear to have vertical transmission but this is either induced or withdrawn. A scientific paper is to be published in due course after our studies into the occurrence of rising damp; therefore this website is not a platform for a full debate on diffusion characteristics and physics of vertical hydroxyl diffusion.

To simply summarise, thermal cycling of a wall fabric can induce moisture formation in the substrate from the houses internal moisture and atmosphere. This moisture becomes trapped at the wall render junction and cannot escape. Thus, the wall retains water and indicates dampness. This is why rising damp is so often misdiagnosed, if only the render/plaster system was only constructed of a breathable matrix containing lime then the wall would simply dry out and no moisture would ever be recorded.

Furthermore, it is worth noting that rising dampness is a modern phenomenon which surfaced in the 1960's along with electronic moisture meters, these meters do not record the actual moisture content within a wall. This can only be done by taking a physical sample from within the wall for weight loss moisture determinations.

The above image clearly shows there is no rising damp in the brickwork that's been immersed in a river for 100 years.

The bricks are dry so too are the mortar beds, we took samples for quantitative analysis in the brick course directly above the river flow, the results were on average 4% Weight/Weight indicating a perfectly dry wall.

We recommends installing a positive input ventilation system such as a Nuaire Drimaster or Nuaire Flatmaster.
This will resolve most dampness issues in a building; it is a far cheaper, less disruptive and will resolve the true problem.
Alternatively, have any potential rising damp situation checked by a DPA approved surveyor.
