Your bathroom should not be annoying. It should be a rejuvenating space within your house. It should be a sanctuary of sorts, really. The problem is, there are just so many ways the place can get annoying…
…Like when it gets excessively moist and you’re constantly fighting back the mold.
…Like when you’re in there in the middle of the night under the glare of bright lights.
…Like when your lights are cheap, ugly, or just don’t match your style.
…Like when your loud exhaust fan makes it impossible to relax.
If your bathroom annoys you in one or more of those ways here’s how exhaust fans can solve each of those terrible annoyances:
For The Moldy Bathroom
If your bathroom gets too moist when you shower and you’d rather not cultivate a garden of mold where you clean yourself every day, get an exhaust fan. To pick one that’s right for you, you just need to determine the recommended fan capacity for your bathroom. This is measured in CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is the volume of air the fan can remove from a room within a certain period of time. You can find your bathroom’s recommended CFM by multiplying the room’s square footage by 1.1 if you have an 8-foot ceiling, or by 1.5 if you have a 9-foot ceiling. For example, a bathroom of 60 square feet with an 8-foot ceiling would need a fan with a CFM of about 66.
