7 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BATH­ROOM VEN­TI­LA­TION

A well-ven­ti­lated bath­room keeps the bac­te­ria, mould, fun­gus and odour away! Ven­ti­la­tion fans pro­mote a dry, com­fort­able and healthy en­vi­ron­ment, even in win­dow­less bath­rooms!

AN ES­SEN­TIAL GUIDE TO CHOOS­ING A VEN­TI­LA­TION FAN:

1. CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES!

In­stal­la­tion meth­ods dif­fer ac­cord­ing to the type of ven­ti­la­tion fan. Some ven­ti­la­tion fans can be mounted on the ceil­ing, wall, or even on glass win­dows! Wall-mount, ceil­ing-mount, and the ceil­ing-mounted sirocco are just a few ba­sic ven­ti­la­tion fans. Al­though costly, the lat­ter, which is con­nected with duct­work, is rec­om­mended if you have a fully-sealed ceil­ing.

• Wall-mounted ven­ti­la­tion fans work like a charm if you in­tend to boost air qual­ity in your bath­room. Fresh air is cir­cu­lated within the bath­room, push­ing out odours and stale air.

• Don’t let the dust set­tle in your bath­room! Win­dow mounted ven­ti­lat­ing fans use glass plates to ex­haust the pol­lu­tants.

• Make the best out of your Ceil­ing­mounted ven­ti­la­tion fans by plac­ing them close to show­ers and bath­tubs to re­move mois­ture from your bath­room.

The fur­ther away the ven­ti­la­tion fans are from win­dows and doors, the bet­ter.

2. FAC­TORS TO CON­SIDER.

Prior to pur­chas­ing a ven­ti­la­tion fan, you need to con­sider if the walls of your bath­room can be hacked or if cut­ting a glass win­dow is nec­es­sary due to space con­straints.

3. SIZE MAT­TERS.

The size of your bath­room is key to de­ter­min­ing the type of ven­ti­la­tion fan to

get! You need to in­vest in a fan that is pow­er­ful enough to ven­ti­late your room without putting ad­di­tional stress to the mo­tor.

BEN­E­FITS:

4. PROPER VEN­TI­LA­TION KEEPS YOUR BATH­ROOM IN PRIS­TINE CON­DI­TION.

It doesn’t take long for the signs of a poorly ven­ti­lated bath­room to show. This can be iden­ti­fied by peel­ing wall and ceil­ing paint, no­tice­able odours in the air, and the ap­pear­ance mould in tiles and grout! Be­fore long, you’ll have a dim and grimy bath­room!

5. WELL-VEN­TI­LATED BATH­ROOMS KEEP POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZ­ARDS AT BAY.

At a glance, the sim­ple act of breath­ing new life into your bath­rooms with a fresh coat of paint and the use of wash­ing de­ter­gents might not be harm­ful; this, how­ever, is not al­ways true. Thank­fully, a ven­ti­la­tion fan helps to speed up the pro­cess of re­mov­ing harm­ful gasses, pro­duced by paint and wash­ing de­ter­gents. It also elim­i­nates other potential health haz­ards pro­duced by the growth of mould and mildew.

BA­SIC MAIN­TE­NANCE:

6. DOES YOUR VEN­TI­LA­TION FAN WORK?

Give it a test! A misty mir­ror in­di­cates a faulty ven­ti­la­tion fan.

7. MAIN­TE­NANCE.

If your ex­haust fan isn’t op­er­at­ing ef­fi­ciently, it might be due to dust! Re­move both lou­ver and fan blades to give them a wash or a wipe down us­ing a mi­crofi­bre cloth. Don’t for­get to clean them reg­u­larly. With proper main­te­nance, KDK ven­ti­lat­ing fans can last more than 10 years!

With pas­sive ven­ti­la­tion, nat­u­ral el­e­ments such as the wind are re­lied upon to fa­cil­i­tate air cir­cu­la­tion within a room. Win­dows and vents on ex­te­rior walls are used to draw in fresh air and ex­pel stale air.

Making an im­pact with door un­der­cuts.

It’s only nat­u­ral to keep the bath­room door closed for pri­vacy. Al­though minute, the gap be­tween the door and floor should not be over­looked. It plays a rather sig­nif­i­cant role in pro­vid­ing bet­ter air cir­cu­la­tion in an en­closed space.

Boost­ing air qual­ity with tech­nol­ogy.

In ad­di­tion to ven­ti­la­tion fans, you can also equip your bath­rooms with air pu­ri­fiers featuring HEPA fil­ters.
