Should You Have an Exhaust Fan in Your Bathroom?

Unless you like grooming and showering in a stuffy bathroom, ventilation is crucial. Many bathrooms have windows that offer some sort of air circulation, but an exhaust fan will do wonders. In fact, many building codes require an exhaust fan in lieu of a window. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of an exhaust fan in your bathroom, and why we recommend one. If you need a qualified electrician to set you up with an exhaust fan installation, then feel free to call Mr. Electric of Katy & Houston. Our live representatives and dedicated electricians are always ready to take your call.

Why a Window Doesn’t Cut It

Many bathrooms have a window, albeit a small one. This bathroom provides lighting during the day, and some ventilation whenever it is open. There’s the catch. It can be an inconvenience to have to open and close that window, especially if it is high up and a non-standard window. Plus, even when it is open, the bathroom window pales in comparison to an exhaust fan.

The Benefits of an Exhaust Fan

There are many advantages of installing an exhaust fan in the bathroom. We will go over just three of the main ones here.

For one, an exhaust fan will eject those foul odors in no time. The bathroom is surely going to smell at one point, or a few points, in the day. However, that smell should not linger. An exhaust fan can keep the family peace by eliminating the stinks.

The second benefit of installing an exhaust fan is humidity control. Odors are not the only things an exhaust fan will handle. Exhaust fans offer ventilation and air circulation. They can kick out excess moisture to protect your property from water damage. Too much humidity can cause paint and wallpaper to peel, surfaces to dirty, and flooring to crumble.

The final benefit we will mention is mold prevention. This goes hand-in-hand with the previous benefit of humidity control, but it is worth isolating. If you have seen mold and mildew growth, then you know it is unattractive. Mold is ugly and it can also be a health hazard. An exhaust fan will suffocate mold by discarding excess moisture in the bathroom.

Leave the Installation to the Professionals

Installing an exhaust fan might seem like a simple DIY project, but don’t underestimate it. The process involves drilling and cutting holes in your ceiling and sidewall. It also involves positioning and aligning many components. Most significantly, an exhaust fan installation involves electrical work. Making a mistake can end up wasting a lot of time, money, and energy.

If you want to enjoy a peace of mind and spend your time and energy on things more worthwhile, then leave the exhaust fan installation to the professionals. Mr. Electric of Katy & Houston is proud to offer these services in all areas of Katy and Houston, as well as surrounding areas.
