Ventilation works best with busy fans

Two of your best friends for ventilation are the fans in your bathroom and kitchen. Fans bring fresher, cleaner air at little cost.

Don’t be reluctant to use them often.

They remove moisture, mold and unwanted smells, and they use little power because they usually have small but durable motors. Let them run 20-30 minutes at a time and your indoor air quality will soon improve.

Bathroom fan

A fan is vital for a bathroom because it offers much better ventilation than an open window. Showers and baths generate a lot of moist air that can lead to mildew, rot and peeling paint.

If you are remodeling a bathroom and adding a larger tub, more sinks or a jetted tub, you may want to increase the size of your fan because these improvements can create more moisture from the hot water as it turns to steam and condensation.

Kitchen fan

A fan improves kitchen air in many ways.

It captures the condensation caused by cooking and whisks it outside, reducing humidity and chances for mildew and mold to attach to your counters.

Think of the fan as a helper keeping your kitchen cleaner and fresher.
