The importance of a good exhaust fan in your bathroom


Why bathrooms need a great exhaust fan.

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 are 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 from forming.

The primary purpose of having an exhaust fan is to remove moisture from 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, at times, 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 the air clean and fresh, removing bathroom odours quickly.

Fans help to control and eliminate bathroom odours. 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, infrared heating and LED lighting to keep you warm, and your bathroom perfectly ventilated, and well-lit.

In winter it’s nice to remain warm when stepping out of the shower. When drying off under heat lamps, IXL models are great to keep you warm.

4. They prevent a build-up of mould over time that would otherwise result in necessary costly repairs and renovations.
