Why use an extractor fan
A well-insulated house is great at keeping the warm air inside and the cold air out. Unfortunately, this can mean your humidity levels will rise as there is little air exchange. High humidity can lead to issues with condensation, damp and mould. Opening the windows is a great way to release that humid air but it also lets the heat escape. This is a less than ideal solution for most Marsden homeowners who are trying to save energy and reduce their heating bills. A great way to reduce the humidity in your home, without sacrificing the warmth, is to install an extractor fan. An extractor fan installer will recommend a good extractor fan that can remove the damp air from your home without allowing the cold air in. By having an extractor fan installed in areas where lots of steam is generated, you can remove the damp air before it gets a chance to circulate. This helps prevent condensation and reduces the risk of mould.
Choosing an extractor fan
There are a few things to that your extractor fan installer will take into consideration before recommending an extractor fan. Your extractor fan installer will calculate the optimum rate of extraction for your fan, measured in either litres per second or metres cubed per hour. This is the volume of air your extractor fan can remove over a set period. If you have large bathroom or enjoy particularly long showers, then your extraction rate will need to be higher.
The location of your extractor fan will also be taken into consideration. For example, an extractor fan installed in an en suite may need to be an ultra-quiet model so it does not disturb your sleep. An extractor fan can operate manually, via the light switch or have a humidity sensor that turns on automatically when it detects moisture. Choosing one with a humidity sensor means you won’t need to leave the light on after a shower or double check if you turned it off at night!
