If you live in an older home, you may notice your bathroom is missing a bath fan. While it is easy to chalk these things up to nothing more than an inconvenience, it is actually much more serious than that. Those bath fans do more than circulate the air in the small bathroom. They are an important part of your home’s construction according to an electrician. Pasadena homeowners will want to ensure the fan in each of their bathrooms is working properly and if one is not present, it is important to have one installed. The Electric Connection can take care of this for you.
Bath fans should be used anytime somebody is showering. The steam produced during a hot shower can wreak havoc on your walls, flooring and even the fixtures in the bathroom. Moisture can lead to mildew and mold. Warping of the wood in the floors and walls is also possible. A bath fan pulls the steam out of the bathroom and reduces the risk of these problems happening.
If you do not currently have a fan in a bathroom, you have plenty of options when it comes to choosing the right one for you. Of course, there are the old standards that are nothing more than a fan. But nowadays, there are plenty of options. Lights are a common addition to the fans available today along with heaters. If a person hates using the fan during a hot shower because all the warmth is pulled out of the bathroom, the heat provided by the fan will provide a warm, toasty environment when stepping out of the shower. The fan should be installed by an electrician. Pasadena homeowners can call The Electric Connection to have their new bath fan installed. Take a trip to your home improvement store and check out all of the options you have and then give us a call.
