What is the Purpose of Bathroom Exhaust Fans?

What is the Purpose of Bathroom Exhaust Fans?

For air conditioning to work properly, there need to be exhaust fans throughout your home, including in your bathroom.

You may have noticed that there is an exhaust fan in your bathroom. However, you might not be too sure what it’s doing there. For air conditioning to work properly, there need to be exhaust fans throughout your home, including in your bathroom.

The Purpose

The main reason why you have an exhaust fan in your bathroom is to help decrease the amount of moisture that gets trapped in there. Think about what you do in the bathroom – the sink, toilet, tub, and showerhead are using up and dispensing water all the time. You’re so used to this that you don’t much of it, if at all. They also help to get rid of smells in the bathroom, remove potentially toxic fumes, and make the air in the bathroom cleaner and easier to breathe.

They Get Rid of Smells

There are many different ways to cover up unpleasant smells in your bathroom – candles, incense, and even bottles of scented room spray. All of these do work, but they are also temporary solutions. Plus, if you or anyone else in your family is sensitive to smells, the other smells on top of the original bad odor that you are trying to mask will only aggravate those sensitivities. Turning on the exhaust fan improves the ventilation in the bathroom. It’s also good manners since you can make the experience more pleasant for the next person who needs to use it.

They Lower Humidity

Humidity in the summertime can also be another huge problem. Heat is one thing, but dry heat behaves differently than wet heat, and both can cause different health problems. Exhaust fans help lower the humidity in the bathroom. Using the fans can help protect the paint, wallpaper, and even the door!

They Get Rid of Contaminants

The fumes left behind by chemicals used for cleaning the bathroom, or hidden mold that is hiding behind the toilet or under the cabinet can easily make anyone sick. Bathroom exhaust fans help deal with these problems.
