How to Install a Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Has your exhaust fan stopped working? There is no need to leave your bathroom vulnerable to bacteria and mildew. A bathroom exhaust fan replacement can help keep your home clean and comfortable for family members and guests. At Mr. Electric, we provide high quality residential and commercial electrical services for property owners in Katy and Houston, Texas area neighborhoods. Here are a few reasons why it is important to replace a dysfunctional exhaust fan, and some helpful tips on proper replacement. 

When to Replace Your Bathroom Exhaust Fan 

Over time, dust and debris can build up on the outside cover of your exhaust fan. The high moisture levels in bathrooms can further encourage the accumulation of materials. Periodic cleaning of the cover and blades can help slow this process down. However, if the issue is left ignored for long, it can cause the unit to become largely ineffective. Failure to properly remove excess moisture can result in mildew and mold growth. For this reason, it is important to clean or replace your exhaust fan when needed and to properly maintain your new unit to maximize its longevity and dependability. 

Tips for Replacing Your Exhaust Fan

Replacing a fan can be a complicated process. Hiring a certified electrician is the best way to ensure that your fan installation is performed accurately and according to current codes and regulations. For successful completion of a fan replacement, the following steps must be taken:

  • Step One – Before you begin your exhaust fan replacement, make sure that the electrical power has been completely turned off at the electrical panel. Neglecting this step could result in electrical shock and severe injury. 
  • Step Two – Remove the existing fan. Most units will be mounted to the ceiling with screws. In some cases, there may also be screws above the ceiling as well. 
  • Step Three – Clear out accumulated grime or dust and check for signs of mold growth or water damage. This area will need to be cleaned, sanitized and repaired if necessary, before putting the new unit into place. 
  • Step Four – Now is a good time to ensure that the duct is properly venting outside of the home. If your fan is directing the moisture into an attic or other enclosed area, then you will need to make sure it is properly installed to avoid mold growth and property damage. 
  • Step Five – Install your new fan and connect it to your electrical system. 
  • Step Six – Once the unit has been installed correctly, you can restore electrical power and test your new exhaust fan. 

Electrical issues should be taken care of by someone with professional training and experience. If you are not sure how to properly install your new exhaust fan, there is no reason to put yourself at risk. Call a local electrician.
