To celebrate the occasion, a special edition gold version was presented to one of its customers, Fife Council, by EnviroVent’s managing director Andy Makin.
The Filterless Extract Fan was designed for the social housing sector and was one of the first products to be manufactured by EnviroVent at its Harrogate factory.
Over the past 12 years, the fans have helped to reduce issues of condensation and mould growth in hundreds of thousands of homes across the UK and the company estimates over 25,000 are in operation in properties owned by Fife Council since 2004.
Andy Makin, Managing Director at EnviroVent, said:
We are delighted to be celebrating the anniversary of the millionth Filterless Fan and to be sharing this occasion with one of our customers whose tenants have benefited the most.
The growth and success of the business can be contributed in part to this hugely popular and successful product that was designed and is made here in Harrogate.
It is testament to the hard work and innovation of our workforce that we have reached this milestone and we look forward to helping even more homeowners to benefit from better indoor air quality.
Keith Brown, Housing Team Manager at Fife Council, said:
Over the years these fans have saved the council hundreds of thousands of pounds in call outs and maintenance costs for condensation and mould-related issues.
It is great that so many of our tenants are benefiting from this innovative technology which gives them improved indoor air quality in their homes.
We’ve had some great feedback from tenants who’ve noticed an immediate difference and it’s also a major benefit that they are very low maintenance.
