Bath Fan Package Pricing for Columbia, MD

Bathroom ventilation fans Columbia Maryland

Do exhaust fans really need love?

Exhaust fans are in most Columbia household bathrooms.  Yet, as familiar as they are to Columbia homeowners, there are several important factors that we see consistently getting overlooked.  

 

5 things about bathroom fans that are overlooked:

  1. Most exhaust fans installed in Columbia, MD homes vent moisture directly into the attic
           --This causes mold
           --This accelerates the age of the roof
           --This degrades existing insulation
  2. Bathroom exhaust fan ducts running through an attic can "sweat" during a Columbia, MD winter if not insulated properly
  3. Different fan models exhaust different amounts of air per minute
  4. If an exhaust fan is making noise, that does not mean it is working right
  5. Incorrectly installed fans can act as gateways to the attic increasing BGE energy bills

A bathroom exhaust fan is important for indoor air quality and should be installed correctly!  

Answer for Columbia Homeowners:

5 things correctly installed bathroom fans do have:

  • The exhaust fan damper is vented through the side wall or roof
  • A bath fan should be measured for how much air it is exhausting after installation
  • A bathroom fan duct should be insulated to R-8 in Columbia climate
  • Rigid duct is preferred with a maximum run of 25'
  • The fan housing should be air sealed  after installation to prevent air leakage
