Does your home suffer with condensation, damp or even mould growth?

Condensation, mould and damp problems are a huge problem across the country especially in homes with solid brick walls without a cavity (this causes cold side of wall to meet warm side of wall which causes condensation). Coastal homes suffer more often from this problem. Homes with a lot of insulation, double glazing and little room to breathe also suffer from condensation. Condensation then leads to mould and damp problems.

Bathing, cooking, washing and drying clothes creates up to four pints of moisture in the home per person per day. There is no way to see this moisture until it clings and condenses on to colder surfaces, such as windows. This moisture can encourage mould and mites which can trigger allergic conditions such as eczema, conjunctivitis, rhinitis and asthma.

Positive Input Ventilation (PIV)

This is a principle where fresh, filtered air is introduced into the home at a continuous rate, encouraging movement of air from inside to outside. This process removes condensation, allergens such as pollen and dust mites as well as the pollutants caused by cooking and cleaning, from the air. This results in a fresh and healthy indoor environment in which condensation and mould cannot exist, and where indoor pollutants including harmful Radon gas are kept to a minimum.

Bathroom Fans

Your bathroom is the home’s area for maximum hygiene that must be maintained and kept clean and smelling good.  You can diminish any unnecessary foul odors from your bathroom by using an ‘exhaust fan’ or ‘extractor fan’ (depending on your age).  This is a kind of mechanical ventilation device is mounted in reverse that instead of pushing an air into the area, it sucks air away.  This extracted air is the source of moisture and bad smells from your bathroom.

There are many types of fans available nowadays depending on the size and type of location where you need to install it.  Some are designed to be mounted on the ceiling, while others are installed into the walls.  Some are associated with lights (combination) and silent sounds. But they usually vary on the price also. The more up-to-date fan you purchased is the higher amount of price you are going to pay.

Moisture, if left to remain inside the bathroom, may cause a bad odor. But installing an exhaust fan may prevent this. Nowadays, features of this kind of fan are continuously being improved by different producers.  Brand names are of god quality  but not just only its name or quality. The function of the device may also be depends on how it was installed.  It is like, how would you enjoy its function if it is not properly placed? How would you feel safe if its wirings are visible near your tub or any item-releasing water or not secured?

When planning to install an exhaust fan, make sure that it will be done by qualified electrician so that they can adjust and install your fan in your bathroom. Because installing this kind of fan is not as easy as hanging on your wall or ceiling but putting a hole on the selected area before they can start the application procedure. This includes the measuring and calculating the bathroom’s dimensions (LxWxH) to properly make a hole and exactly fit to your exhaust fan.

Isn’t it a big failure on your part?
