Bathroom Ventilation


Bathroom ventilation is very essential for good health and contents of the house. It is applied to get rid of heat, humidity and dust from home. For proper ventilation, windows and doors must be placed opposite each other.

Importance of Bathroom Ventilation 

  • It doesn’t let dust and dirt accumulate in the house and helps to control diseases. 
  • It makes your home free from musty air, unwanted odors and provides fresh air. 
  • It stops stale and stagnant atmosphere and stops mould growth, peeling of paintwork.
  • It ensures healthy, comfortable and balanced atmosphere in house.

Methods of Bathroom Ventilation 

We can get bathroom ventilation by two ways either by windows or by mechanical ventilation system. In winters when windows are kept shut, we need mechanical ventilators such as: exhaust fans (ventilation fans) for ventilation. Exhaust fan removes moist air and foul smell from bathroom. These fans are set up by a timer and are activated when shower is turned on. They are deactivated when shower is turned off.  The fan has one more function as a humidity sensor which maintains moisture level. The following are approaches of bathroom ventilation systems.

1. Window Ventilation System

The window should be proper having a size of 3’x2’. It’s properly installed giving full ventilation to the space. Thus installed window gives fresh air to the bathroom.
