Things You Should Know About Exhaust Fans

New, clean air is substituted for stale or dirty air when a structure is ventilated. Although many applications call for ventilation, the basic airflow principles remain constant: unwanted air out, fresh air in.  A healthy home requires adequate ventilation in the kitchen and bathrooms. Modern dwellings typically lack natural ventilation, where exhaust fans come in quite helpful. Here is all you need to know about them.

What should we keep in mind when purchasing an exhaust fan?

The primary consideration when choosing an exhaust fan for the bathroom or kitchen is its size. The exhaust fan’s airflow, or the amount of air exchanged per minute, is measured in CFM (cubic feet per minute). 

Kitchens have exhaust fans installed to get rid of heat and other gases that are created when cooking. Cooking generates steam, which makes the kitchen area humid. By replacing the humid air with fresh air, the exhaust fan stops the growth of mould and mildew, which could lead to various allergies, asthma attacks, or serious respiratory illnesses.

Because hot air rises and collects close to the ceiling, the kitchen exhaust fan should be located there. The heated air is drawn in by the exhaust and expelled.

 Typically, a bathroom needs 1 CFM of airflow for every square foot. Therefore, choose a 50 CFM exhaust fan if your bathroom or kitchen is smaller than 50 square feet, and calculate the CFM based on their square-foot area for larger areas.

Different Types of Exhaust fans available in the market

Exhaust fans can be mounted on the wall, ceiling, or window. They come in the following varieties:

  • Wall-mounted exhaust fans can be incorporated into the design of the window or a cutout in the exterior wall. Because they vent stale air outside, these exhaust fans are incredibly efficient.
  • Choose a ceiling-mounted exhaust fan if the exterior wall or window still needs to have a cutout for the exhaust fan. They must be connected to a duct to exhaust the indoor air outside and installed within the false ceiling. Some exhaust fans hanging from the ceiling have a light fixture that serves as an additional illumination source.
  • Exhaust fans come in plastic, metal, and a high-end SS finish. If your home is near a shore, avoid employing metal finish exhaust fans because the metal may rust easily.

 Your utility areas can be perfectly complemented by one of the three sizes of fans available, differing based on the size of the fan blade in inches, such as 6 and 9 inches.
