Now there are many different types of controls
for your ventilator depending on the equipment of the fan and its brand. Forgetting daily ventilation and the resulting mould growth are become virtually impossible.
The programmable humidity control
comes with sensors that measure relative humidity, or in other words the water vapour contents in the room. Starting from the selectable maximum limit of 60 % for example the device automatically starts to ventilate and turns off once the condition of the air has reached more acceptable levels. The automatic ventilation
that starts up every time the bathroom is used also has shown incredible results. For this method devices connected with a motion sensor
are particularly suitable and react as soon as there is a motion in the room. It also makes sense to wire the device to a light switch so that it can be turned on and off without any problems. Of course it is possible to manually control
fans with a pull cord or switch on the housing.
Another great benefit is the optional after-run timer
that can be connected to the ceiling light or flush, for example. It determines for how long the fan should operate after the bathroom light has been turned off. The after-run period (ventilation period) can be adjusted on a timer to run as long as 20 minutes. At night or when leaving the house for a longer period you can select regular ventilation intervals with a convenient timer.
Application of small room fans:
- Bathrooms in homes and hotels
- Guest WC
- Storage and utility room
- Pantry and kitchen
- Cellar room
- other small rooms
- Rooms that are used infrequently
- rooms without windows
Fans for small rooms, for example application in kitchens
are easily installed in a similar fashion and comply with all safety guidelines for fume hoods. That means they are heat resistant and, if roasting and frying leads to a small mishap, self-extinguishing. The smell of food might be beneficial for the appetite, however they are rather unpopular when emitted by furniture: Fans immediately extract the odours so that they do not have a chance to spread throughout the entire home. Their coatings are easy to clean, stains from grease and sauces can be removed instantly, the interior electrics of the device are protected from water, water vapour and other splashes by IP codes
, because it is natural to handle a lot of liquids in kitchens (and bathrooms). The integrated filters are also easy to clean, for example by washing them out with water.
Accessories, care and maintenance
Considering a couple of instructions you are guaranteed to enjoy your ventilation system for a long time:
Fans for small rooms and openings for supply air must be exposed due to safety reasons, the must not be covered by objects that interfere with the air flow. For example, do not place potted plants in front of window fans to screen them from view. Usually, sensors that automatically determine the required amount of air must not be turned off except for maintenance. More details are available in the instruction manual.
The common colours white or light grey are very discreet, making them very useful as they match any bathroom or kitchen interior. On the outside a grid prevents objects from getting in, such as insects, leaves and other small parts in the wind, such as pebbles. The practical seal also transports condensation water away in a safe distance to the exterior wall of the house. Easy-care housings made of special synthetic material are protected from yellowing, a wet sponge can get rid of dust, water spots and other débris. On the inside of the element regulating supply air a dust filter absorbs even smaller contamination. Regular maintenance and the replacing or cleaning of the filters according to the manufacturer’s recommended intervals guarantees a constant supply of good breating air.
