Selecting the Appropriate Bathroom Fan Size and Style
Numerous sizes of Bathroom fans are available in the market. A small unit Fan consumes just 50 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM), and larger units consume almost 200 CFM. Selecting a suitable fan size from this extensive range is very critical. Our skilled and experienced contractors will help you to choose the right one based on your bathroom size.
A small unit fan will be insufficient to remove enough odor or moisture; on the other Bathroom fans shouldn’t have to make a noise like a jet engine. This place should be quiet and odor-free. A loud bath fan can reduce your social status and increase your electricity bill. The modern bathroom fans are so smart and quiet you can hardly hear them run. In comparison, most inhabitants are more than 20 years old and have bathroom fans that consume about 125 watts of electricity and make five times more noise than an average refhand, the large unit fan can generate a dangerous air pressure condition that pulls deadly carbon monoxide back over your water heater flue.
We use a mathematical method to calculate the size of the fan that will meet your needs. We multiply the bathroom’s length, width, and height size to get its total cubic feet. Then we multiply the total calculated cubic feet by .13 and round up to the nearest 10. As an example, an 8 ft. x 6 ft. bath with a 7 ft. ceiling equals 336 cubic feet. When you multiply 336 by .13, we will get 43 CFM. If we round up, it will get to 50. So buy a 50 CFM bathroom fan.
Noiseless fans are costly, so select the right one that fits your budget. If your bathroom has a mold problem, you may choose a model with a moisture sensor that runs the fan till humidity falls to an average level. Select a “retrofit” model with marginally more significant dimensions than your existing fan for the most effortless installation.
