The importance of a good exhaust fan in your bathroom

Having a functioning exhaust fan in your bathroom is essential now the colder weather is upon us. In homes, bathrooms, laundries and kitchens are prone to moisture problems, caused by the high humidity of these rooms. Every time you use hot water in your home, you create steam. That steam penetrates every crevice of the room and then cools down. As it cools, this steam turns into water, which then turns into condensation. Condensation, in turn, feeds mould, mildew and, in extreme cases, structural rot.

Here’s four reasons why you should have one installed or replaced now before winter really takes hold:

1. They reduce moisture build up to prevent mould and mildew forming. The primary purpose for having an exhaust fan is to remove the moisture out of the bathroom. Exhaust fans remove moisture before it creates condensation. Failing to remove moisture from the air can quickly result in mould formation which not only looks bad, it can be terrible for your health. In fact it is so serious, some homes that have a mould infestation can be labelled as uninhabitable. And removing mould that has become a problem is a costly process. Exhaust fans remove moisture from the air which helps prevent mould and mildew from even forming.

2. They keep air clean and fresh, removing bathroom odours quickly These fans help to control and eliminate bathroom odors. Additionally, they add to the safety of the home and its residents by reducing fumes from cleaning agents that could potentially cause health-related issues

3. IXL models come in a convenient all-in-one fan, heating and LED lighting to keep your bathroom perfectly ventilated, well-lit and warm. In winter it’s nice to have a warm bathroom. The IXL models generate a nice amount of heat to make sure the bathroom is nice and warm when it’s being used.
