This article which looks at “humidity sensing extractor fans” is the second in a series of articles by bathroom water damage prevention specialist Steve Dalloway.
I have these in all my flats and they are brilliant !
I mentioned in my previous article that mould needs three things to grow ….
…. and moisture is the one that’s really easy to control.
These “humidity sensing extractor fans” switch on automatically when the bathroom gets humid and stop when the humidity level gets back to normal again. So no light pulls or having to remember to pop the fan on etc etc.
In over 20 years of using these types of devices I have had incredibly low levels of mould growth on baths, walls and ceilings.
They cost about £80 to £100 but it’s a great investment and saves me lots of time on turn-arounds as the bathrooms don’t need much attention other than a good clean.
The other good thing with this solution is that the fan only comes on when it’s humid and not at 2am when you go to the loo. So no waking the whole house up with a fan going for 20 minutes which can be annoying and wasteful of electricity too.
