Taking a hot shower in winter is so nice! But no doubt you’ve encountered situations when you turned off the tap, it turns freezing cold in seconds! If you want to continue to enjoy warmth without any interruptions, a thermo ventilator is just what you need! It generates heat to create a cozy environment. Some models come with special functions including clothes drying and deodorizing. There are many types of thermo ventilators on the market. Which one is right for you?


Type Definition Advantages Disadvantages
Portable type
  • As the name suggests, it is movable and suitable for bathrooms of any size, It doesn’t require fixed installation at a certain location
  • No installation required. Some models offer three mounting options: hook, wall and tabletop, and are not limited for use in the bathroom. Plug into a power source and use in living room, or any corner at home or in the office
  • Supply of heated air is average and airflow is uneven
Ceiling Mount type
  • as the name suggests, it is installed on the ceiling of the bathroom and connects to an air duct outside. Because it needs to be installed onto the ceiling, floor length must be of a certain standard.
  • more even airflow
  • the ceiling must be of a certain height standard or a suspended ceiling is required for installation
Window Mount type
  • Installed in the space reserved for a window and directly replaces the ventilation fan. Because it is mounted in a window, it is suitable for low ceilings. Note that the size of windows varies in different apartments so measurements must be made to ensure you buy a model that fits.
  • Provides fast air extraction suitable for low ceiling apartments
  • A window is required for installation and occupies a large space. Make sure the window is large enough before buying
Wall Mount type
  • similar to the window type, but with an addition duct which is needed for the exhaust air to pass outside. As the air duct is exposed, some consumers are concerned about the aesthetics and so you may need to consider this factor.
  • suitable for bathrooms without windows and apartments with low floors. The installation process is more convenient than the window type and the ventilation fan can be retained at the same time.
  • an additional air duct is needed to connect to the outlet and the appearance of the exhaust air duct could be obtrusive.


Precautions and tips


In addition to the price, style and function, consider the following factors as well before buying a thermo ventilator:


1. Installation fee

The price of a thermo ventilator does not include standard installation service. For details of the installation fee schedule, please refer to: https://www.fortress.com.hk/en/installation


2. Power consumption

A thermo ventilator uses a large amount of power so do not overlook this fact. Generally, the power consumption of a thermo ventilator is over 1,100W, which is about 3 times higher than that of a dehumidifier. Check the wattage before purchase. The larger the number, the higher the power consumption.


3. Size

Thermo ventilators come in various sizes. For example, for window mount types, you should take note of floor height to see if it can be installed in the bathroom. Arrange for a consultation to make sure it can be installed before buying.


4. Noise level

The thermo ventilator comes with a built-in motor and fan, so there will be noise during operation. If you want to enjoy a quiet shower, check the dB noise level before purchase. 


5. Ventilation rate

This function takes away moisture and odor in the bathroom. However, the higher the ventilation rate does not mean that the air is fresher. Ventilation rate can be calculated as below:

Number of air changes per hour (5 times) x room area (m2) x room height (m) = ventilation rate cubic meters per hour (CMH)


6. Splash resistance

Although thermo ventilators have a splash resistance level of IPX4, it is limited to the outer shell so avoid getting splashes on it when showering.
