Social housing providers will be stocking up on multiple extract fans to repair, replace and ventilate properties affected by condensation and mould this autumn. However, early converts to Nuaire’s innovative ‘Cyfan’ will be in an enviable position, says Product Manager Wendy Thomas.
“Condensation season, as we call it in the ventilation industry, can be a trying time for social housing providers as tenants tend to keep windows and doors closed due to the colder weather whilst also drying clothes inside the home. As humidity levels increase, so does the damage to the interior fabric and decoration. Maintenance teams spend considerable time visiting properties affected by condensation to install new extract fans or replace ineffective fans, and this often means having to carry a huge range of fans in order to find one to suit the property, layout and tenant lifestyle, or having to return to the property at a later date”, explains Mrs Thomas.
“Cyfan is designed specifically for the social housing market and is unique in that it allows maintenance teams to select and install the correct ventilation settings for every property type and tenant lifestyle, and all in one visit. Furthermore, they only need to stock and carry one fan as Cyfan is suitable for all wet room applications; offers multiple settings and installation options, and meets building regulations.”
Cyfan features adaptable controllability allowing the installer, within minutes, to switch it to a low-voltage fan to accommodate splash zones. Flexible installation options include a recess kit, an optional window kit and a unique side spigot for properties that have adjacent toilets and bathrooms, allowing both rooms to be ventilated with one fan. Small, compact and stylish, Cyfan is visually appealing as well as offering a range of features designed to satisfy tenants. Quiet-running, the fan speed slowly increases when it needs to boost so there is no association between noise and running costs, however, at less than £2 per year to run, tenants will be pleasantly surprised at the low cost of effective ventilation.
