At Frank’s sheds, we know how important it is to have proper shed ventilation. Today we are sharing 6 ways that you can better ventilate your shed and avoid damp and mould.
- Install vents
The easiest way to ventilate a small shed is to install vents in the walls. A small vent at the north and south points of your shed allows airflow and will keep the shed ventilated.
- Install roof windows
For proper shed ventilation as well as light, install a roof window. This will not only bring ventilation but will also brighten up the shed and give you a lovely view of the sky.
- Install a whirligig
A whirligig is more than a funny word: it’s the key to proper shed ventilation. For medium and large sheds, installing a whirligig on the roof will draw air up and through the shed to keep it ventilated.
- Install an electric fan
For larger shed’s an electric fan will push air around and ensure your shed doesn’t become too humid.
- Allow the sunlight in
Sunlight is a great help for proper shed ventilation as it will reduce humidity in the air. By allowing sunlight through windows, you are less likely to suffer from damp.
- Install a heat source
For larger sheds, a heat source may be needed to reduce humidity. This will ensure the air stays dry and will keep your shed strong for longer.
