Whether it is needed? Without a doubt, the answer will be unequivocal – of course, yes. Indeed, in the bathroom, high humidity leads to staging air, in the absence of ventilation. As a result, mold, fungus, smells arise and a good mood disappears from all this and well -being worsens.
Since the need for exhaust ventilation is undeniable, it remains only to choose its type. There are two types of ventilation system that can be used for the bathroom: forced or natural.
Natural ventilation is planned in the process of design and construction. If this is a multi -storey building, it makes a ventilation channel passing in the wall through each apartment, if it is a private house, then a small window is made in the wall. The duct passes through the entire building vertically and is displayed to the attic of the house. Due to the pressure difference, air circulation occurs, so the humidity in the bathroom is reduced.
When the ventilation is such, then the bathroom can be connected to this ventilation channel by drilling a hole if the duct is made together with the wall. If it goes by a separate pipe, then you can make an insert and set the tee with the output of the hole into the bathroom. It is necessary to install a protective grill. This will not only look beautiful and neat, but will also protect from the penetration inside the room of all garbage, rodents, insects.
Forced ventilation is used if:
– Natural ventilation is of low efficiency, a poor air hood and there is no way to fix everything;
– There is a sauna device in the bathroom, such as a steam generator.
For forced ventilation, an elektro -exhaust is used. It is different: shape, dimensions, color, but made according to one principle. Electric drive of the fan and air discharge system. Effectively performing the function of good axial fans – simple and inexpensive.
In order to save, such hoods are connected to the switch in the bathroom. It will work only when the light is on. This allows it to be used only in cases of necessity.
