Since it’s release in 2012 the Nuaire Drimaster has become the go to PIV unit (Positive Input Ventilation).

If you’re looking for information on what a PIV unit is, then check out our article on “What is a PIV Unit and how does it work?”


Does a PIV unit actually work?

Loft space for Nuaire Drimaster installation.

To make it clear, I do not own the Nuaire Drimaster. I have heard many glowing reviews both online, from friends and acquaintances. One has claimed that after just days their nightmare of constant streaming windows had come to an end.

Of course, the only way you can believe a product’s quality is by trying it for yourself or by reading a vast number of reviews/recommendations which is why I would point you in the direction of Amazon’s customer reviews of the product, scoring a very impressive 4.9 stars on average, with the single lowest score getting 3 stars.

Installation and Maintenance

It has been suggested that there’s no reason why you can’t install this unit for yourself. As it comes with an install guide. However, I would not advise this without building and electrician qualifications as a powerpoint in your loft will be essential. You’re also likely to see warnings in the install guide to the tune of “risk of death”.

If you are confident of fitting a PIV Unit yourself, then check out this excellent detailed video on how to do so.

As far as maintenance goes, the main thing to note are the filters, which require replacing around every 5 years.


What can I expect from the Nuaire Drimaster?

Air ventilation systems, such as this one are common place in commercial buildings. So you can expect something very similar that requires less power.

This particular model also comes with heat control. So that you can adjust the temperature of the air in those cold wintery months. Just as you would with an air conditioning unit.

So, how exactly would I rank this piece of equipment?

This product is in a league of it’s own. After paying a slightly bigger fee than a standard dehumidifier and some time in installation, you will reap the rewards. It will stop mould from ever growing on your walls and you will be breathing the freshest air possible. This is the king of mould busting and not just for one room but the entire house.

If you have damp and humidity problems all over the house or are just determined to improve your lifestyle and air you’re breathing. Then the Nuaire Drimaster is undoubtedly for you.
