Why You Need a Bathroom Exhaust Fan

An exhaust fan is more important for your bathroom than you realize. The primary function of an exhaust fan is to remove moisture and eliminate odors. Here’s more information about exhaust fans and how a White Marsh electrician can help.

What Are the Benefits of a Bathroom Exhaust Fan?

It’s not uncommon for unpleasant odors to occur in the bathroom. The bathroom’s fan will quickly draw out the odor and help maintain a neutral smell and clean the air for the next individual. Fans can also help with humidity control. Humidity in the bathroom can lead to problems with mold, mildew, and bacteria, which can be difficult and expensive to remove. Moisture in the bathroom can also lead to peeling wallpaper and warped doors.

Most people clean their bathroom with harsh chemicals, which can cause a variety of health issues, especially when the chemicals are inhaled. Fans can reduce airborne contaminants. If mold becomes a problem in your bathroom, the exhaust fan will remove a lot of the spores in the air and help decrease the mold’s growth rate.

Taking a hot shower can fog your bathroom mirror, and it seems like it takes forever for it to return to normal so you can use it. Having an exhaust fan helps control the moisture in the bathroom and remove water vapor from the walls and mirror. Reduce your foggy mirror syndrome!

Exhaust fans for your bathroom are equipped with various features to help make your bathroom more functional. Most homeowners prefer an exhaust fan that features a light. You can have a fan that eliminates odors and suffices as a primary or second light source. There are also humidity and moisture sensing exhaust fans that activate when the moisture in your bathroom exceeds a certain level to help prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. Finally, there’s nothing better than feeling a little heat after getting out of the bath or shower. Exhaust fans with heat lamps work great in smaller bathrooms. You can take your time drying off and relax.
