Smart Ventilation Systems
One of the biggest thing when looking into purchasing a mobile home is whether it needs to be properly ventilated, and the answer is yes. Venting in a mobile home is just as important as for a regular home. Lack of ventilation in any setting can lead to a number of problems, including mould growth and inadequate protection from moisture.
Here at UK Leisure Parts, we offer a number of adequate ventilation products and services to ensure that your mobile property has the best ventilation system possible. A full list of our ventilation products and services can be found here.
Benefits of ventilation
Ventilation – especially under the floor, can have huge benefits for your mobile living situation, in terms of energy saving and convenience. It can create a healthy environment, which can be beneficial to those with families, because it is always important to keep the kids safe from harmful air! There are 4 main benefits to having good ventilation in your mobile home:
- It can significantly save energy. By venting the crawlspace underneath the floors, it can keep all of the foundations (e.g. the insulation) dry at all times. Foundations which are not protected by this ventilation can transfer heat and cold air more easily, which can cause energy bills to shoot up.
- Vents can prevent the build up of moisture. Moisture build up in a property can cause damp build up and subsequent mould problems, which is harmful to your health. Venting the property can prevent this damp build up and prevent any hazards to your health.
- Venting a crawlspace can prevent harmful gases from rising up from the ground. When travelling and living in a mobile home, it usually ends up with you setting up for the evening in a campsite or field. More often than not, harmful gases from the soil below (such as methane and radon) can travel up into the property and can cause harmful health consequences. Ventilation can prevent this and can therefore be beneficial to your quality of life.
- Reduces odours. Adding onto the last point, soil odours can often be strong in the exchanging air and can create an uncomfortable atmosphere inside the small mobile home. Having efficient ventilation prevents this, which can benefit the atmosphere inside the home and your health.

Overall, it can be proven that adequate ventilation can have many benefits to your quality of living, the environment around you, and the general health of your mobile home. A good airflow, which is not interrupted is important in any home, as it can create a consistent flow of air. This can be beneficial to your home and your health. Removing this consistent air flow can cause problems such as condensation and odours that can make an uncomfortable environment.
