Think of your home as a monarch or, less grandiosely, a boss.

What’s the very definition of boss?  Having employees – people with assigned tasks that are essential to an efficient organization.

The business lesson stops there, but the home lesson starts here.  If your home is the boss, the bathroom exhaust fan is one of its key employees. That’s because it serves critical needs, at least one of which that concerns your health and well-being.

Here’s what the right bathroom exhaust fan can do for you.

  1. Improved Air Quality
    Bathroom fans vent humidity and dampness to prevent the formation and spread of mold and mildew, both of which can trigger asthma and other breathing issues. Plus, mold is just plain ugly, hard to clean, and hard to get rid of. With a properly vented bathroom, you’ll be breathing cleaner and healthier air.
  1. Fresher Scent
    With less mold, mildew and airborne particulates from your toilet, your bathroom can’t help but smell better with the aid of well-functioning exhaust fan.
  1. Less Fog
    Do you prefer to shave after showering? Not so easy to do, is it, if your exhaust fan isn’t effectively removing the steam? And that’s assuming you have a fan to begin with.  Get yourself a good quality fan and wipe away the fog for good, but without having to literally wipe the mirror down…that causes streaks, and that means having to clean your mirror often.
  1. Reduced Home Maintenance Costs
    Water, steam, humidity and moisture all can wreak havoc on both your bathroom and home. They create breeding grounds for bacteria, mold, mildew and other allergens and can damage everything from furniture to drywall. Venting that moisture and humidity out through an exhaust fan—and not your bathroom door—can save you thousands on repairs and home maintenance.
