Ventilation

Had enough of Cellar Mould

No one cares for it: Mould in the cellar is both unhealthy for you and for your building structure. But where is the source?

If there are no serious structural deficiencies, most often the cause is poor aeration. In the cellar, air cools off, moisture builds on the walls and forms a breeding ground for mould.

A cold breeze helps: It is important in the prevention of mould in the cellar to aerate with the coldest air possible – as cold air contains the least amount of moisture. To "dry up", you can, for example, install a pipe inserted ventilator that pushes fresh air into the cellar. Optimally at night when the air outside is cold and controlled with a timer – that way "dry" air can still absorb cellar moisture and significantly reduce the risk of mould!

Clean: The secure dryer connection

Lint mess: Despite dryers having a lint filter, lint is still transported through the air. Exhaust ducting is slowly clogged, which can damage the dryer.

In order to maintain functionality, we recommend removing the outer screen when using a grate cover. Another tip: Also suitable - exhaust hood and the automatic locking cap!

If cold air is blowing down through your vent hood…

Make you nervous? An exhaust vent always requires a wall feed through. This means interrupting house insulation. As long as the vent is running, everything is fine. But when not in use, changes in pressure cause cold air to flow into the house. This is already caused when a door has been opened or a blast of air hits the front of the house.

In order to reduce introduction of cold air to a minimum, aside from an exhaust vent being installed on the outside of the wall, a back pressure flap can be installed directly on the inside wall. The wall feed will thereby create a "locked" air chamber which insulates - and warm are will remain securely in the home.
