When it comes to saving energy at home, many first think of their living room or kitchen. But even in smaller rooms such as the bathroom, there are a number of ways to optimize your wallet and the environment.
What is the biggest energy consumer in every apartment and every home?
Right, the heating. So if you want to save energy in your bathroom and avoid unnecessary costs, you should start with heating. To keep the bathroom pleasantly warm, the average room temperature is usually slightly higher than in the rest of the rooms. However, showering, washing hands, bathing, etc. also result in higher humidity than in the rest of the apartment. Therefore, a bathroom should be ventilated frequently and intensively. In order to prevent unnecessary loss of energy due to air exchange, it is important to avoid tilted windows. It is much better to ventilate the windows regularly with them wide open for a short period of time. Thus, the room air is completely exchanged within a few minutes without the walls cooling down too much. Of course, this is not possible with an indoor bathroom without windows. This is why fans are usually installed in such bathrooms. For ventilation, you should let the fan run briefly with the room door open. In this way, the moisture is blown out of the bathroom via the fan blower - either directly through the outside wall or via an exhaust shaft.
