Bath Fan Ventilation

Did you know that poor quality or improperly installed fans can cause moisture build up in your home. This can be damaging to your home and to your health as it causes mold and mildew.  It is important to ensure you have proper venting in your bathroom. Check to make sure your fan has a duct leading outside. The duct  should also not be too long and have no sharp turns.  Make sure your ducts also have proper one way dampers to prevent backflow and unwanted pest in your home. 

Fans are rated by the cubic feet per minute of air that they move. (CFM). It is important to make sure you have the proper cfm for your size of bath room. If you do not have the proper cfm for the size of bathroom it may not be venting all the moisture that is in the air. Leading to unwanted mold and mildew in your home. Also consider the amount of time you are running the fan after your shower, especally if the heat and duration of the shower is increased. Check with your local electrician and or H-vac specialist to insure proper installation of youy bathroom fans.
