Surveying of Residential Ventilation Systems
This Masterclass in residential ventilation provides surveyors and property professionals with the skills and confidence to make informed evaluations of ventilation in homes.
The one day course is open to both PCA members and non-members alike and provides a detailed analysis into retrofit ventilation systems and associated industry regulations.
Who is this residential ventilation training course for?
With ever-increasing pressures upon homeowners to conserve fuel, insulate and draft proof their homes, the frequency and severity of mould growth and condensation related damp is increasing. Where it is discovered that a lack of air exchange and ventilation is a contributory factor to a damp problem, it is imperative that the correct solutions are specified.
This unique course developed by the Association is suitable for anyone involved in the design and installation of retrofitting fans and mechanical ventilation solutions in existing homes.
