Most bacteria and microbes collect in the bathroom. It is therefore important that you keep the bathroom as clean as possible. Extractor hoods are designed not only to remove the bad smell.
Bathroom extractor hoods are responsible for removing moisture after showering or bathing. Some building codes require people to install such fans in their bathrooms. The moisture that extractor hoods remove from your bathroom can lead to condensation and mold. In the case of condensation, depending on the material and the amount of condensation, your wall or ceiling materials can become uncomfortable and even deteriorate. Mold can cause serious health risks, some of which can even be fatal.
It is also true that extractor hoods use a lot of energy in the bathroom. However, modern models make it possible to use the so-called “chimney effect”, which does not require any energy-consuming devices. It means that you have to have a hole in the wall and the construction of the building should allow the use of a vertical pipe that constantly draws in the air. This way you have energy-efficient ventilation and the moisture is removed from your bathroom.
Apart from health problems, bathroom extractor hoods can also keep the bathroom fresh. They take the smell along with damp. This way your bathroom can smell good in a few minutes (depending on the strength of a fan).
One tip is how you want to use your fan – a separate switch that lets you choose when to run on a constant power source when the fan is always on with lights on. This means that the fan is on when the light is on in the bathroom (ie when it is busy). The latter is not the best, since the bathroom usually has to be ventilated even after use and switching on the light and fan is not energy-efficient at all.
