Most homes know the benefits of a quality exhaust fan installation to improve their home’s ventilation, with both health and comfort advantages.
Benefits of an Exhaust, Extraction or Ventilation Fan Installation
The main exhaust fan function is to remove moisture [high humidity] and a range of fumes and odors created in these traditional areas in your homes and workplaces.
Bathrooms are the rooms to gain the most benefit from a quality exhaust fan installation. Steam and condensation from hot baths, showers and basins feed the growth of mould in bathroom walls, ceilings, corners and crevices, eventually damaging paint or wallpaper, and can even ruin wood fittings in the room. A variety of bacteria also enjoy these conditions and can thrive around showers, baths, basins and toilets. Exhaust Fans will expel this moist air and steam to prevent mirrors fogging and the range of condensation problems mentioned.
A 3 in 1 bathroom combination unit providing light and heat, plus the exhaust fan is a popular addition for your bathroom with all the benefits of an Exhaust Fan, with the convenience of light and heating globes to keep you warm after your Winter showers.
In your kitchen areas, a good quality exhaust fan installation will quickly extract cooking fumes, smells and especially airborne moisture [steam], and usually vent them outside.
Laundries also have the steam and humidity from Washing Machines and Dryers to clear away. These usually compact rooms are often closed up for security reasons while the washers and dryers are working through long cycles, so without good ventilation every surface is soon covered in condensation. Properly positioned Exhaust Fans are the best way to expel the majority of the humid air before condensing in the laundry or adjoining rooms.
Remember an Exhaust Fan removes air from a room, so to work efficiently it needs to draw fresh air into the space, through a window or vent. Also the position of your fan needs to compliment the window or vent, usually by being as far away as practical to maximise airflow in between.
