We see exhaust fans as a must in bathrooms with showers or baths! Exhaust fans reduce steam and condensation which means mould won’t develop on the ceilings and walls. Mould is dangerous to health and expensive to remove!
Tips: Remember, exhaust fans will only be effective if there is air entering the room to replace the air that is sucked out of the room by the exhaust fan, creating circulation. This means making sure a window is open even slightly, or having a carpenter shorten your door, so there is a 20 mm gap between the floor tiles and the door, to allow for circulation. If you are suspicious of family members, house mates or tenants not using the exhaust fan when they shower, have an electrician combine the light and fan onto the one switch. This will mean the bathroom user won’t have a choice but to have the exhaust fan on!
