How Does Nuaire Drimaster Work?

Nuaire Drimaster-Eco Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) systems offer the most effective solution for curing and preventing condensation, damp and related issues. The unit introduces fresh, filtered air continuously into the dwelling, encouraging airflow from inside to outside. Mounted in the loft space, the system draws air through filters and delivers it at ceiling level, creating positive pressure that forces air pollutants out through natural leakage gaps in every UK property. This low-energy, whole-home ventilation method protects residents from harmful indoor air pollutants, promoting a healthier living environment. Drimaster models that feature an integrated heater ensures that if the air in the loft falls below a certain temperature, the heater will warm the cold air before distributing it throughout the home.
