A range of Nuaire Drymaster whole house ventilation with heat recovery. The Nuaire Drimaster Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) systems include Nuaire Drimaster, Nuaire Drimaster Heat, Nuaire Drimaster 2000 & Nuaire Drimaster 365 with heat recovery ventilation systems. The Nuaire Drimaster provides whole house ventilation as a positive input ventilation system. The Nuaire Drimaster 2000 & Nuaire Drimaster 365 incorporates a heat recovery ventilation system known as intelligent heat recovery system. All Nuaire Drimaster models have a 3S (Three Story) option to meet the current fire regulations.

All the range of units come with a manufactures 5 years unconditional parts and labour warranty, installation is under a separate contract and is not included in the warranty unless installed by our contracting division.
All the units require no maintenance for the first 5 years, after this initial period you will need to clean the filter or if they are damaged or you prefer install new filters. This routine maintenance will need to be undertaken every 5 years.
The average power consumption for the Drimaster range including the Drimaster standard, 2000 and 365 is 0.16 watts / Lr/ second, this is offset by the solar gains of up to 550 kw / hr / year
The Drimaster positive input ventilation filters the air from the loft space and the Drimaster powerful filters remove dust and pollen together with traffic fumes and other external pollutants. Internal pollutants such as carbon dioxide and radon are also expelled from the dwelling, (If using the unit for Radon control please discuss this with our technical team).
The Drimaster filtered air improves the quality of the air within the dwelling and is clinically proven to be of benefit to allergy and asthma sufferers. The high efficiency dust filter removes up to 95% of dust particles.
These units are easy to fit with little interference to the living area, only a small hole is required for the diffuser installation. Once the unit is fitted it is fully automatic when e airflow is set on installation and can be left to run until your 5 year filter maintenance, referred to a as fit and forget operation. Drimaster Standard/Heat/2000 are usually suspended from the rafters to increase the heat recovery feature, a AV mounting kit is available should you wish to secure the unit to the ceiling joists.
The whisper quite operation of the Drimaster allows a virtual silent operation as part of the fit and forget appertain. The low noise is further reduced on Drimaster Standard, 200 and heat units as they can be suspended from the rafters to further reduce any vibration.
Drimaster has available for all units a fire damper and diffuser made of aluminium which is powder coated to an off white finish (ral 9003), this addition is required for 3 story properties to conform to current regulations the unit is a 3S version of all models. This provides 1 hour fire resistance in accordance with BS476 part 20 and ISO834 and is required in stairwells.
Drimaster Complies with Building Regulations Ventilation requirements and will contribute toward ‘conservation of fuel and power’. (Please refer to BBA Certificate 00/3727 for full details). The Drimaster is a whole house ventilation system.
The whole house is provided with ventilation without the need to open windows, windows are then not left open to opportunist thieves, leaving your property secure during all weather.
A setting as standard allows the unit to enter a standby mode and in summer months where the temperature exceeds 27/30C, other setting are available, see intelligent heat recovery.
The Drimaster system has 6 speed setting to enable the unit to be installed in a wide range of property, from a small one bedroom bungalow to a large 5 bed room house. The speed settings correspond to air volume
The Drimaster 2000 & 365 can be used in boost mode when required to remove cooking or general odours around the property. The boost facility is an optional extra on the Drimaster 2000 and included with the 365 system
Drimaster units have a heat recovery system installed in the Drimaster 2000 & 365 units. Twin sensors optimise energy efficiency adjusting settings to provide increased comfort. A separate room sensor is used in the living area to achieve the optimal heat recovery ventilation from the loft.
To enable the Drimaster to operate at low temperatures without the input air feeling to cold there is an option of an integral heater that will warm the input air to enable continuous running of the unit. There is a setting that shuts down the Drimaster in very cold temperatures this option does allow the unit to operate at lower temperatures. there is a 8o C increase in the input temperature. The heater will need to be separately wired and it is recommended that you have a control switch in the living area.
Nuaire Drimaster 3S (3 Story)
These Drimaster units are the '3S' option for all the units in the Drimaster range. 3S option stands for 3 storey as fire regulations are more stringent for 3 storey properties. The addition of a diffuser specially made from metal and incorporates a fire stop. In the event of a fire these unique diffusers react to the heat and collapse in on themselves, thereby creating the necessary 'firestop'. The Nuaire Drimaster 3S range FULLY COMPLIES with the relevant fire regulations.As with all units in the Drimaster Standard 2000 and Heat, these units can be used in new build properties and existing properties.
A positive input ventilation unit gently supplies tempered, filtered air into a home using otherwise unused heat within a roof.
The benefits of this are enormous;
Firstly, it means that a significant proportion of external pollutants are prevented from entering the home.
Secondly, the use of the otherwise unused heat in the roof results in the ventilation unit providing a significant net energy gain to the home.
Thirdly, there is no better way to ventilate a home than from the inside out via a single, centrally located, supply air diffuser.
A good quality unit, fitted in your loft, will operate at an almost imperceptible noise level. You will hardly know its there. A properly designed and installed unit will ensure that old, contaminated, vapour laden air in your home is continuously diluted, displaced and replaced with good quality air. The result is improved indoor air quality and an environment in which condensation dampness cannot exist.
The old air exits through the thousands of air leakage points found in all homes. Indeed, positive input ventilation will even help to suppress unwanted infiltration (draughts).
The installation of a low energy positive input ventilation unit will ensure the air in your home is completely replaced with better quality air around 20 times a day. This is the recommended rate to maintain good air quality.
Your roof is an energy source.
South east to south west facing tiles or slates absorb energy from the sun. Even the loft space itself is a substantial source of energy. During the heating season it will almost always be warmer than outside because of solar gain and conduction and convection losses from the home. Positive input ventilation units use the tiles/slates and/or the loft space itself to pre-warm the incoming air before delivering it into the home.
The input air enters your home at ceiling level, usually on your landing. This method re-circulates the warm air that rises and collects there as well as reducing the heat loss to your loft.
The slight pressurisation effect created helps reduce infiltration of unheated air through the leakage points found in all homes, having a consequential energy benefit.
In simple terms, a good quality low energy positive input ventilation unit will provide a significantly greater amount of energy into the home than the energy it consumes in the form of electricity, providing a considerable net energy gain.
