Making Sense out of Bathroom Ventilation

Posted on November 30, 2018

Ventilation is very important in any home. This is especially true for areas where there is a lot of moisture such as your bathroom. However, most people are clueless about how to properly ventilate a bathroom. And unlike bathroom aesthetics, which is easy to make sense of, you may have to dig a little deeper to understand bathroom ventilation. If you’re lucky, you may be able to find a detailed bathroom showcase at a good bathroom showroom, which may help you understand how a well-ventilated bathroom should look like. Here are a few helpful tips on addressing ventilation problems in your bathroom.

Take Adequate Measurements

Before you do anything, you will need accurate measurements of your bathroom. Specifically, you will need to compute for CFM or Cubic Feet per Minute. This is related to the volume of air that your bathroom can hold. To compute for this figure, you will need to measure the height, length, and width of your room. Multiply these three measurements and once you have the results, divide it by 5. You will also need to compute the area of your bathroom since exhaust fans are often rated by CFM and area.

Shop for an Exhaust Fan

Once you have your measurements, you can start shopping for an exhaust fan. Simply compared the capacity of the fan with your CFM and floor area requirements and you’re good to go. However, you will have to make sure to get a fan with a good quality motor. It would also help if it came with a reasonable warranty.

These are just a few useful guidelines you can use for ventilating your bathroom. For more information about this topic as well as bathroom remodeling in general, visit a reputable bathroom showroom today.
