Indoor condensation in the bathroom can result in excessive mould growth. Discharged moisture can be soaked into walls, ceiling and floor. This leads to fungal growth. Excessive humidity can cause both mould growth and deteriorate the health of the house.
The moisture can build up in the bathroom and cause major damage to the walls, floor and the ceiling. Whenever you take a hot shower or bath, a high level of humidity and moisture is produced. Old homes are more prone to moisture generation than the newly constructed houses. Moisture can also result in the paint peeling off, wallpaper falling out, rusted fixtures and warped doors.
Most homeowners use exhaust fans in the bathroom for odour control. Sometimes they don’t know that an exhaust fan in the bathroom can help in reducing moisture. Having an exhaust fan in the bathroom can also add value to your house. An extract fan will help in increasing the health of the bathroom and decrease damage to it.
There are no performance requirements for extract fans or exhaust fans installed before 1 July 2019. If the exhaust fans installed before 1 July 2019, they do not need to meet any performance requirements. It is however important that they meet ventilation standard. The extract fans must be in good working condition and they should ventilate extracted air outside.
