Exhaust fans aren’t particularly exciting, nor do they change very much, but these steady components can help improve your home’s ventilation a great deal. The ideal placements for exhaust fans are kitchens and bathrooms, as these areas tend to generate a lot of odors and moisture. However, other areas, like garages and laundry rooms, can benefit from exhaust fans, too.
Exhaust fans can offer your home several benefits, as we’ll outline below, but to gain any benefit at all, it’s important to hire an expert for installation. The electrical professionals at Premier Indoor Comfort Systems have been helping customers in Atlanta and the surrounding areas since 1999, so if you are looking to install a residential exhaust fan, call us today!
Ducted vs. Non-Ducted
The first thing to know about any exhaust fan you install is that you can choose either a ducted or non-ducted fan. As the names indicate, a ducted fan uses an air duct by which to expel the indoor air and moisture; a non-ducted fan filter air through charcoal, then release the cleaned air back into the room.
Benefits Exhaust Fans Offer
As mentioned above, one of the main benefits an exhaust fan offers your home living spaces is better ventilation. But, there are some other benefits to consider:
- They help remove excess moisture – exhaust fans pull excess moisture from areas and expel it, removing it permanently from your home. This action can be especially helpful with areas like bathrooms and kitchens.
- They remove smoke and odors – we’ve all experienced the smoky dinner, or maybe you have a smoker in your home. Exhaust fans help to quickly remove smoke and odors, making your indoor air more breathable.
- They help improve comfort – exhaust fans help maintain circulation and remove excess moisture, increasing your overall indoor comfort.
