I am figuring out the best (energy, noise) setup against mildew. What is the smartest thing to do for example after the humidity suddenly rises after shower?
Is it better to max the ventilation followed by increasing the temperature afterwards OR
Start of with raising the temperature and then switch the ventilation to a max.
- priority nr 1: prevent mildew buildup in bathroom
- I am using a high volume ventilator (buisventilator in dutch) that sounds as if an airplane engine is running when its at high speed. Even low speeds makes quite some sound. For that reason I prefer to use the system at a minimum (as long as no mildew)
- this only applies to bathroom and downstairs toilet
- when the bathroom is warm the humidity drops quicker, however if I run the ventilation at a max the same happens. However if I do both simultaneously I fear I just end up loosing my heating efforts.
if humidity > 75 then send ventilation to the max
until humidity drops to 73, then switch to low
keep ventilation running until at 63
at 63 switch of
I am not using the temperature control
Current installation: TADO smart radiator. Fibaro smart switch which sends the ventilator on either High, Low of OFF. Aqara humidity sensors.
