Bath / Exhaust fans can make the rooms theyíre in a lot more pleasant, comfortable and healthier. The fans provide necessary ventilation to areas of the house that have none. or where additional spot ventilation is needed.

Which Rooms in My Home should have an Exhaust Fan?
- Bathroom (eliminates foggy mirrors, excess heat and limits mold growth)
- Kitchen (dissipates cooking smells, grease and heat)
- Garage (clears out unhealthy, even dangerous fumes that can accumulate especially an attached garage; clears fumes from car exhaust, power lawn mower fumes; chemicals stored such as paint thinner, adhesives, etc.)
- Attic (prevents attics from becoming stuffy and too warm; protects items stored there from getting get moldy, prevents wood rot on floors or furniture)
Why do I need Exhaust Fans?
- Removes excess humidity from the air (from showering or cooking, for example)
- Comfort and convenience: The kitchen is easier to clean when excess grease and cooking debris are vented out with an exhaust fan and thereís less mold to clean up in the bathroom
- Odor control and quick ventilation of fumes
- Better indoor air quality: Clears out unhealthful fumes from the garage, along with grease, combustion debris and heat from the kitchen stove and keeps moisture-loving bacteria and mildew at bay in the bath.
- Prevents condensation and limits mold growth
- Prevents damage to walls and the homeís structure: Wallpaper can peel in a moist environment. Paint peels off of wooden window sills and other places in a humid room. Wood floors and furniture may become warped or require replacement (years earlier than otherwise) when exposed to moisture in the air.
Proper exhaust fan installation is crucial for family and property safety. Electrical wiring and correct venting require the skills of a professional electrician. Did you know that exhaust fans must be vented to the outdoors to work properly? Itís true. Unfortunately, many fans are incorrectly vented to the attic or a nearby crawl space.
When improperly installed and not vented to the outdoors, exhaust fans just send the excess airborne moisture to another area of the home to damage wood, cause mold growth, etc. If your fans arenít clearing out moisture and odors, like theyíre supposed to, improper installation may be the problem. Or you may need larger or more powerful exhaust fans.
