Small Bathroom Makeovers: HVAC

Small Bathroom Makeovers: HVAC - Heating and Cooling

Ceiling Fans and Vents

Installing ceiling fans and vents in your bathrooms, which you can include in your small bathroom makeovers, can be one of the most important things you can do. Not only will you prevent mold and mildew from forming in your bathroom, but you will breathe easier in your bathroom, too. You will also prevent stale odors and steamy mirrors while taking a shower.

1. First, find the right fan size to install in your bathroom. Fans are rated by a CFM (cubic feet per minute) rating, helping you determine the right size.

2. To find the CFM rating, multiply the square footage of your bathroom by 1.1.

3. Next, mark the space where you want the fan to be. Ideally, it should be between the shower and the toilet.

4. After that, you have to trace where the vent of your fan will come out. It should always come out to an outdoor outlet and not just to an attic.

5. Next, cut out the ceiling where you marked out the space you want the fan to be.

6. Outside, mark the space where the duct will be.

7. Run the duct from the bathroom to the outside and attach the fan. Or, you could opt for professional help.

Changing Radiators

In order to change radiators, you will need some carpentry tools. Of course, if you need to change radiators in your bathroom, the simplest thing to do is to find the same radiator. However, if you are unable to do so, here is how you can change a radiator.

1. You will need to adapt the pipework for a new radiator. First, you will need to disconnect the old radiator, complete with its pipe system from your wall.

2. At this point, all you need to do is to replace the heated towel rail, if you have one.

3. Then you will need to adapt the new radiator system to the old radiator system’s size. This means opening up the floorboards and altering the pipe system.

4. After this, you have to install the new heated towel rail.
