Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit Overview
The Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit Overview can be fitted into a loft where it remains out of sight. There are no holes needed in the walls, making this a non-disruptive installation perfect for retrofit projects. This unique unit cures most condensation dampness, has its own built-in heater and improves your household air quality. On top of that, it is easy to install and needs little to no maintenance.
It’s important to note that this unit doesn’t in itself provide any extraction of water. Instead, this PIV unit works by pumping fresh air into your home. When this happens, the old air is forced out and your condensation levels are lowered.

With this Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit, the ventilation unit is inserted in your loft floor. From here, it brings in fresh air from the parts of your loft that allow natural air in. This air passes through your Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit’s fan and filter. Then, it enters your home while pushing out old, stale air.
With this system, you can expect to enjoy a high-quality breathing environment throughout your home. This means you can expect a reduction of allergens that lead to asthma and other respiratory illnesses. In addition, you should see less condensation, mould and odours in your house.
Features and Benefits
While the Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit has numerous features, there are several that make it unique. First, this unit removes humidity from the air naturally but filling the home with fresh air. It also has its own 400-watt heater which is attached to the ceiling diffuser in your loft.
This heater ensures that the air entering the home is in line with your comfort level. By warming the air at the ceiling level, you save energy. In addition, the Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit helps to remove indoor pollutants from cleaning and cooking. It also keeps the outdoor pollutant like pollen and traffic fumes where they belong.
It is important to note that the Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit also meets Part F and Part L of Building Regulations meaning it is a low-energy strategy for ventilation.
On top of all these other benefits, Nuaire gives a full seven-year warranty. Only reputable companies provide warranties that long. That is what I call peace of mind!
The Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit has easy to use hall controls. Everything you need to control your unit is located in the ceiling diffuser for easy access.
There are numerous sensors you can use as a bonus. Choose between the carbon dioxide detector or the remote humidity sensor. There is also a four-button switch you can keep anywhere in the home to have control over the boost function. This switch also gives you the ability to control the heater in case you desire manual adjustment.
When the loft exceeds temperatures of 23°C, the unit will go into a summer month system standby which saves you energy and time.
Nuaire Drimaster Filters
The nice thing about the Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit is that it is easy to maintain. You want to replace the filters every three to five years on average. This number could vary based on your circumstances. For example, if you live near a main road or area with extreme pollen, you might find that they need to be changed more often.
In addition, when the Nuaire Drimaster does not appear to perform as when you first installed it, that could be an indication of a problem with the filter. If you are suffering from recurring mould or condensation, you’ll also want to check for restricted or blocked filters.
The general rule of thumb is that anytime you notice a reduction of quality air in your home, start by replacing the filter.
Nuaire Drimaster Installation
The Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit is easy to install and the guide even comes complete with the instructions for DIYers or professional installers to follow. It teaches everything from the installation in the loft to how to set up those sensors.
The Drimaster requires no ducting. They even supply you will all the ancillaries needed to create a suspension installation. The only thing you might need to purchase is the mounting kit which is sold separately.
To show just how easy the setup is, Nuaire published a video detailing the instructions.
Nuaire Drimaster Installers
If you feel that the installation of your Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit might be too much for you to handle alone, you could look for a quality installer in the UK instead. With plenty of options available, you will want to pick a company that has experience with PIV units.
Choosing a company that has the lowest rates is not always the best option. Instead look for a company that has positive reviews online. You can even call and ask the company for their level of experience. This will give you a feel for how long they’ve been installing these types of units.
The Nuaire Drimaster PIV Unit is certainly a unique product unlike many others. While you might notice that the price tag is slightly higher than your typical dehumidifier, I do believe it is worth the additional cost. You can be sure that this product will dramatically cut down on mould growth and will provide you with the high-quality air you deserve. It is considered one of the top solutions for dealing with your entire home’s air quality.
