A renovator’s guide to bathroom heating & ventilation

Why you need ventilation plus the best solution for you

When it comes to bathroom reno’s it’s easy to get caught up in picking the right tiles, paint colour and fixtures. When actually discovering the right bathroom heating and ventilation option is one of the most crucial choices you’ll make. Here, we discover the five main benefits of bathroom heating and ventilation and how to choose the right solution for your space.

1\ Say goodbye to foggy mirrors

There’s nothing worse than having your AM routine slowed by wasting precious time waiting for your mirrors to un-fog. Choosing the right ventilation solution will help you stop foggy mirrors so you can power through your morning.

2\ Air fairy

Windows and bathrooms don’t often go hand in hand, which is where the right ventilation solution comes in. Ventilation can improve airflow by up to 28 per cent, which means that your bathrooms are kept as clean and fresh as possible.

3\ Go the distance 

Steamy hot showers and baths, paired with the fact that bathrooms often have poor natural airflow create humid conditions and the perfect breeding ground for mould and mildew. Over time this combination can also lead to the deterioration of your walls, doors, ceilings, fixtures and cabinetry but with a ventilation solution, you won’t have to worry.

4\ Pong free

Your bathroom is the one room in the house that is bound to smell every so often, a ventilation fan will help minimise smells ASAP.

5\ Warm toes

With their tiled floors and often tiled walls, bathrooms offer very little insulation making them one of the coldest rooms in the house. Warm downlights and vents/heaters offer a contemporary solution that will keep your room (and you!) nice and toasty.
