    How cheapskate are you?

    Hedgehog adds up very quickly if you buy a lot of it.

    It depends whether you mean "tenancy - time of living there" or "tenancy - length of tenancy agreement".

    The median tenancy in the PRS is something like 2 years. The mean is even longer. So - yes...

    Suspect - as others say - just to do a Humidistat controlled fan off an FCU.

    You could either put the switeched FCU near the ceiling, or make it a fused unit only (as I sometimes do).
