Four Tips for Getting a Bathroom Ventilation Fan
Ventilation fans are measured by their ability to move air (in cubic feet per minute or CFM). A good general guideline is 1 CFM per square foot of floor space in the bathroom.
Most bathroom ventilation fans are built to send air into ceiling joists, which is where beams connect to other panels into the roof. This can lead to damage overtime. If you have air ventilation ducts that lead to the outside of the house, attach the fan there. The air will be expelled to the outside. It’s also important to review the safety requirements for installation.
Fans have improved and now come with features such as humidity and motion sensors to help mitigate moisture and conserve energy. Functions can even be separated out to provide you with even more flexibility
Bathroom fans can be loud because they have to move a lot of air. Check the rating before you buy to make sure it fits both the needs of the space and your tolerance for noise.
