As a rule, air circulation should be provided in any residential premises. That is why ventilation is provided for in apartment buildings. However, often when installing ventilation there are a number of errors. And this is fraught with serious consequences. After all, after some time it will simply be impossible to be in the apartment. This article will discuss the problems associated with the ventilation duct.
Air doesn't get into the apartment
Over time, ventilation becomes clogged with various debris. Therefore, it must be cleaned regularly. If this is not done, then there will simply be nothing to breathe in the apartment. You can also easily suffocate. The air in the apartment should come only from the street. It is highly recommended not to install additional devices that would provide air flow.
No clearance between door and floor
The air in the apartment must move freely. To do this, a small gap of not more than 1 cm must be left between the door and the floor. Due to this, air circulation in all rooms will be achieved. The absence of such a gap will adversely affect the health of residents of a house. After all, air stagnation will simply happen. In the bathroom, it is recommended to install additional means that could "suck" hot air.
Poor sealing of connected parts
As practice shows, air masses can seep into the apartment from neighbors. Often this is due to insufficient sealing of the equipment. For example, sewage, water or heating.
Violation of the rules when installing a ventilation system
As a rule, installation of ventilation systems should be trusted only to professionals. It is highly not recommended to independently perform such a procedure. Subsequently, a large number of problems may arise. The distance between the wall and the ventilation itself should not be less than 5 cm. If this rule is not observed, the operability of the ventilation duct will sharply decrease, especially in the winter season.
The house has many ventilation ducts.
Many people know that during the construction of a house several ventilation systems are installed in it at once. These systems, as a rule, have exits to the kitchen and bathroom. Some people, making repairs in their apartment, decide to make ventilation in another place. At the same time, they leave the old hole open. In this case, the new ventilation will "suck" much less air, which will cause a number of problems.
