Bathroom Exhaust Fans—And Why Your Home Needs Them

Bathroom without an exhaust fan

For many, bathroom exhaust fans are just an option. But maybe it’s time to rethink that mindset. Bathrooms are usually smaller spaces with only one or, in some cases, no windows. That means that steam from the shower and unwanted odors stay trapped in the space. This is not good for air quality.

The Problem With Steam

A good shower will create steam. Without proper ventilation, that steam has nowhere to go—and that’s a recipe for trouble. Why? Because the trapped steam leads to humidity and the development of condensation.

The result of the accumulation of these water droplets could be mold and mildew. It can also cause wooden doors and fixture to swell, not mention the damage to paint and drywall. Over time, this can cause the deterioration of your bathroom—which could mean costly repairs down the line.

How to Solve the Problem

If your bathrooms are not currently equipped with exhaust fans, we highly recommend that you hire a professional from Air Hawk to install them. This is the best way to ensure that everything is venting outside rather into the attic or some other shortcut method.
