Bathroom Fan Installation
Each day, we spend between 30 and 60 minutes cleaning, rejuvenating, and pampering ourselves to feel and look our best. It seems self-evident that a restroom should be a pleasant place to spend time.
Bathrooms in the majority of Ottawa homes are dark, stuffy, and uninviting as a result of substandard function, design, and ventilation. Even closing the windows and thoroughly sealing them to keep out the heat or cold does not appear to help.
Normal bathroom activities result in high humidity, bacterial or fungal development, and persistent smells as a result of excessive moisture. Bathrooms become uninhabitable and unhealthy as a result of a lack of adequate fresh air, and the loud noise produced by an outdated exhaust fan only exacerbates the problem!

It protects the home against cold air re-entering from the outside. Insulation is added to the duct around the hose that connects the fan housing to the exterior louvred cap. It will aid in reducing heat loss to the outdoors. Avoid caulking the space beneath the bathroom door. The fan expels the air, which should be replenished with fresh air. If your bathroom has high ceilings, you may require a stronger fan.

Choosing a Bathroom Fan
To get a better idea of what you need, think about the following questions.
What is the overall square footage of the bathroom?
How many amenities do you have in your bathroom?
What is the length of the exhaust duct?
Is it necessary to have lighting on the fan?
Is the dwelling to be built in the attic or on the ceiling?
Installing a Bathroom Fan Has a Number of Benefits
Warm, humid weather promotes the growth of mould, mildew, and microorganisms. High moisture levels in rooms can deteriorate interior room components such as wallboard, paint, and trim, not to mention the doors. If your bathroom lacks a fan and smells musty, it’s time to install one and see if major mould growth hasn’t already occurred.
Provide ventilation for a safe and healthy bathroom. A bathroom vent fan’s primary function is to exhaust wet, warm air generated by the usage of a bathtub or shower. Bathrooms without fans are prone to excessive moisture collection, which increases the likelihood of damaging bathroom walls, surfaces, and ceilings, as well as bathroom equipment.
How Long Does Installing a Bathroom Fan Take?
Our electricians will need to make a hole in the wall and run new wires in order to install a bathroom fan. In most cases, this will take between three and five hours, although it might take longer depending on the construction of your house.
Attic access and venting options differ in each home.
