Exhaust Fan Installation

The humble exhaust fan doesn’t usually get the attention it deserves. Exhaust fans can make the rooms they’re in a lot more pleasant, comfortable and healthier. The fans provide necessary ventilation to areas of the house that have none. or where additional spot ventilation is needed. If you don’t have an exhaust fan in the overly humid or odorous parts of your home, or if existing fans aren’t functional, call on Mr. Electric® for professional exhaust fan repair or installation and a free home electrical inspection.

Which Rooms in My Home should have an Exhaust Fan?

  • Bathroom (eliminates foggy mirrors, excess heat and limits mould growth)
  • Kitchen (dissipates cooking smells, grease and heat)
  • Garage (clears out unhealthy, even dangerous fumes that can accumulate, especially an attached garage; clears fumes from car exhaust, power lawn mower fumes; chemicals stored such as paint thinner, adhesives, etc.)
  • Attic (prevents attics from becoming stuffy and too warm; protects items stored there from getting get mouldy, prevents wood rot on floors or furniture)

Why do I need Exhaust Fans?

  • Removes excess humidity from the air (from showering or cooking, for example)
  • Comfort and convenience: The kitchen is easier to clean when excess grease and cooking debris are vented out with an exhaust fan and there's less mould to clean up in the bathroom
  • Odor control and quick ventilation of fumes
  • Better indoor air quality: Clears out unhealthful fumes from the garage, along with grease, combustion debris and heat from the kitchen stove and keeps moisture-loving bacteria and mildew at bay in the bath.
  • Prevents condensation and limits mould growth
  • Prevents damage to walls and the home’s structure: Wallpaper can peel in a moist environment. Paint peels off of wooden window sills and other places in a humid room. Wood floors and furniture may become warped or require replacement (years earlier than otherwise) when exposed to moisture in the air.

Why Get Professional Installation from Mr. Electric?

Proper exhaust fan installation is crucial for family and property safety. Electrical wiring and correct venting require the skills of a professional electrician. Did you know that exhaust fans must be vented to the outdoors to work properly? It’s true. Unfortunately, many fans are incorrectly vented to the attic or a nearby crawl space.

When improperly installed and not vented to the outdoors, exhaust fans just send the excess airborne moisture to another area of the home to damage wood, cause mould growth, etc. If your fans aren’t clearing out moisture and odors, like they’re supposed to, improper installation may be the problem. Or you may need larger or more powerful exhaust fans.
