Industry leading ventilation company Vent-Axia has launched a new social housing microsite at www.vent-axia.com/social-housing. Designed to offer ventilation information and solutions to registered providers, contractors, landlords and residents, the microsite is a huge vault of free resources.

Providing the social housing sector with vital guidance on how to avoid or combat condensation and mould by improving indoor air quality (IAQ), the website offers visitors a route to their individual ventilation solution. Visitors to the site can find expert information and direction to help improve IAQ in the social housing sector and so help protect the health of residents.

Vent-Axia’s engaging new microsite is a move away from traditional ventilation websites that just offer visitors details of social housing ventilation products. Instead the microsite is a journey-led, solutions-based website designed to engage users by bringing together all the information, services and products needed to effectively tackle condensation and mould while improving IAQ. Visitors to the site will be able to contact Vent-Axia’s social housing experts directly and:

  • Arrange a free survey of a property that has condensation and mould;
  • Arrange a toolbox talk;
  • Arrange a CPD;
  • Sign up to an e-newsletter.

“The launch of our new social housing microsite is a great addition to the Vent-Axia website and users should find it attractive and engaging with loads of helpful functionality” explained Jenny Smith, Marketing Manager at Vent-Axia. “It brings our social housing team closer to registered providers, landlords, contractors and residents, allowing them to have a direct line to ventilation experts in the social housing sector. The microsite is packed with useful information and has lots of free resources for visitors.”

Social housing is a vast sector and Vent-Axia’s new microsite provides a clear route to a ventilation solution whichever part of the sector the visitor comes from with sections on: disrepair; planned maintenance, reactive maintenance; condensation and mould; adaptations; private landlords, resident satisfaction; and Vent-Axia’s Training Academy. As well as providing solutions to ventilation problems, the microsite gives information in each section on how to prevent condensation and mould.

Social housing has a very specific set of ventilation needs and so it’s vital to have expert advice from a company that understands the sector. The microsite includes a link to sign up for a free of charge, no obligation site survey where ventilation consultants can provide landlords with advice to determine if ventilation could be the solution to a condensation and mould problem. Following the survey, social housing landlords will be provided with a report which will outline recommendations and, if necessary, products that should be installed and where they should be located. Information on all social housing ventilation products is also included in the microsite.

Vent-Axia is committed to improving ventilation and IAQ and so offers a raft of training options. These options include a new NICEIC Domestic Ventilation Training Course, which is aimed at anyone with an interest in installing ventilation systems and understanding of domestic ventilation systems. The course provides the necessary skills in system design, installation, testing, commissioning, handover, servicing and fault-finding of ventilation systems in accordance with the latest National Occupational Standards and Minimum Technical Competency documents.

In addition, the Training Academy allows installers to sign up for Toolbox Talks which provide hands-on training, illustrating the best practice installation of ventilation products. This aims to helps improve the first-time fix rate, saving time on site for installers and ensuring the right ventilation is specified for a job. Hand-in-hand with Toolbox Talks, CPD Seminars are available for installers, building surveyors and technical officers to help increase their knowledge of the problems and solutions associated with condensation and mould, providing up-to-date specialist knowledge.

For further information on all products and services offered by Vent-Axia telephone 0844 856 0590 or visit www.vent-axia.com.
