Ceiling exhaust fans are an important part of your home’s ventilation system. Most importantly, they remove moisture, as well as unpleasant odours and fumes, therefore protecting the surfaces of your home from mould and bacteria build up, as well as preventing water damage to the surfaces.
Bathrooms and Toilets - Bathrooms are the wettest room in the home, therefore prone to mould and decay if there is too much moisture build up in addition to a lack of ventilation. If moisture is allowed to build up on bathroom surfaces, there are a variety of unhealthy bacteria that can build up in these conditions, making your bathroom unhygienic and even unhealthy. In addition, the build up of moisture can damage the paint and potentially the bathroom fittings and fixtures. A correctly fitted exhaust fan extracts the moist air from the bathroom, preventing condensation and moisture on the bathroom surfaces. A ceiling exhaust fan also removes unwanted odours and when fitted with a heating light, provides warmth after those winter showers.
Kitchen - A well-placed exhaust fan in your kitchen will remove all unwanted fumes, odours, steam and smoke from the area, keeping the room well ventilated and fresh.
Laundry - It is very important that your laundry is well ventilated, particularly if you use a dryer. Laundries are often closed while in use to minimise the noise from laundry appliances, so it is critical that this area is fitted with an exhaust fan in order to prevent condensation and moisture build up.
In all areas of your home, it is important to ensure that ceiling exhaust fans are properly located and fitted by a qualified electrician. The kitchen ventilation, in particular, should extract odours and moisture to the outside of the house, not into the roof cavity.
