Energy Efficiency And Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Most people don’t pay much attention to bathroom exhaust fans until the boogers and cobwebs are hanging half way down to the commode. When the fan gets plugged up, energy efficiency is lost and the exhausting power of the fan is reduced to almost nothing.

The normally efficient fan motor heats up, wastes electricity, and applies unneeded expense to the power bill. If your bathroom exhaust fan cover looks like a Kansas dust bowl and the fan motor will no longer hold up a piece of toilet tissue, it’s time for a little preventive maintenance.

What is a bathroom exhaust fan?

Mounted on your bathroom ceiling or exterior wall, the toilet exhaust is given the task of removing moist or awkwardly perfumed air from the area. If moist warm air stays in the room – the potential occurrence of mould and mildew is significantly increased.

  • By taking away the moist warm air made by a bath or shower, the relative humidity is reduced as is the chance of mold. And, of course, eliminating the awkwardly perfumed air from the toilet simply allows the bathroom to be used by another person sooner.
  • A less expensive apartment model will be rated at 50 cfm and approximately 4.0 sones. 4 Sones is the noise of a standard T.v., 3 Sones like office sound, 1 Sone is the sound of a refrigerator, and 0.5 sones such as rustling leaves.
  • Some bathroom exhaust fans have humidity sensors that turn the fan on when moist air is present and then turn off the fan when the air is refreshed and no longer retains noticeable moisture.  If you want to get more info about  Vacuum blower (also known as ”  โบลเวอร์ดูดฝุ่น ”  in Thai language ) you can look at http://www.ecoen.co.th/product/31/Ventilation/48/Dust_Collectors_(2HP) .

Which toilet exhaust fan would be best for my bathroom?

I would suggest a bathroom exhaust fan rated at 100 cfm or more and a sone degree of something around the level of rustling toilet paper. I would also recommend you set up a timer switch so you can leave the fan running after you leave the bathroom and have the fan turn off itself about 20 minutes later.

A ceiling fan has a duct attached that is designed to take the warm moist air and discharge it into the wonderful outdoors. Be sure the duct is firmly attached to the fan and that the duct terminates outside and not just into the attic space.

How does a fan waste power and increase my electricity bill?

Combine the circulation of exhausting air with the moisture content of the atmosphere and you have a dust collecting system. One, the fan is great at collecting and holding dust, grit and dirt and 2, the ceiling fan is mounted in the ceiling and hard to see and difficult to reach and clean. The ceiling fan becomes the forgotten appliance.
