Was your home built without a bathroom exhaust fan or is it sounding like a leaf blower when you turn it on?
It may be time to consider servicing, upgrading or installing a new bathroom exhaust fan. There are an extensive amount of homes out there that have bathroom exhaust fans that are noisy, move very little air and are not energy efficient or just do not have one at all. Many homeowners may not be aware that their current bathroom exhaust fan, or lack there of may be causing damage to their homes.
What should a proper bath exhaust fan accomplish?
Bathroom exhaust fans are an integral part of a home’s ventilation system. They improve indoor air quality, eliminate odors, and remove moisture and humidity that can lead to drywall damage or mildew and mold growth. Proper venting of the moisture is equally important. Venting of moisture should never vent into an attic. If someone says it is okay, their lying. A bathroom that is not properly ventilated can penetrate into drywall, attic insulation and even structural joists. Venting should always carry moisture outside of the home by means of a soffit vent cap, wall vent cap or roof vent cap.
How do I tell if my bathroom exhaust fan is not doing its job?
Check your mirror after having a shower. If the mirror is steamed or there is a build-up of condensation on walls, then there is most likely something wrong.
Considerations when installing a bathroom exhaust fan
