Mechanical ventilation not suitable for combined and shared ventilation systems bathroom and toilet.

Sometimes as a supporting element for ventilation use the door vents. If you don’t want to spoil the design of the door, you can just leave a bigger gap between the door and the floor. So the ventilation will be carried out, and the door will remain intact.

After you have installed the ventilation system, you will need to cover up the pipe that it was not visible. For this you can use a plasterboard box, which is placed directly on the fan. In this case the hole must remain.

It is important! In any case, do not fully close air vent, so that air will not be able to pass full flow into the ventilation shaft. It is also contrary to the standards of operation of residential premises.

Check valve for ventilation ↑

How to make ventilation in the bathroom and toilet

Sometimes the ventilation system is not doing its function, and air, which needs to stretch, it comes back into the room or stays in there. To resolve this problem is to install a check valve. Their design is very simple, but the purpose of the truth is important. With non-return valve, all the exhaust air goes to the ventilation pipe. Distinguish:

  • mounted horizontally;
  • mounted vertically.

When choosing a check valve, you need to consider what your ventilation system. So, if the duct is oriented vertically, respectively, and air direction should be vertical, then install a horizontal check valve. If the vent system is horizontal, your choice – this valve is vertical. The damper blades must provide proper air movement, so the direction of the ventilation system is inversely proportional to the mean valve.

It is important! The higher throughput of the valve, the more its power.

The reasons for the poor performance of the ventilation system ↑

If after the installation of the ventilation system had problems in its work, it is possible that during the installation mistakes were made. The poor performance of the system can be attributed to:

  • the irregular layout of the ventilation system of the entire premises or the building (if condo). Here, unfortunately, the fix will not work;
  • mistakes made in calculations during the installation. Perhaps if the measurements were the inaccuracies that later became the reason for the incorrect location of the fan;
  • defective fan and other parts used during installation. If you replace the fan and other components, the situation has improved, so blame the marriage, if not, better call the wizard.
  • a damaged venting system of other apartments.
It is important! When buying components, be sure to check the integrity of all items! Ask the consultant all the questions on the fan and system as a whole. When installing be careful.
