The Association is providing some fire safety advice and links to assist in raising the awareness of the dangers of fire in the home.
Titon Ventilation Unit
The importance of providing adequate ventilation:
All dwellings need a supply of fresh air, not just for the health and comfort of the occupants, but also to control condensation. The main task of mechanical ventilation is to remove the polluted indoor air from the building and replace it with ‘fresh’ outside air. The Titon unit fitted in your home is a "whole house" ventilation system and combines the supply and extract systems with a heat exchanger to capture and re-use some of the heat produced in the home.
Typically, warm, moist air is extracted from ‘wet’ rooms via a system of ducting and is passed through a heat exchanger before being exhausted outside. Fresh incoming air is preheated via the heat exchanger and ducted to the living room and other habitable rooms. The unit requires very little maintenance and is designed to run continuously.
DO NOT SWITCH OFF THE UNIT; if the unit is switched off moisture levels may increase which could result in condensation and mould growth occurring within your property. Please watch the video below to see how the unit works and read our condensation leaflet for more advice on reducing moisture levels in the home.
The Association has produced a quick user guide and offers its tenants technical advice and home visits if further assistance is required.
