Why You Should Be Running Your Bathroom Fan During The Summer And Winter

As the Spring season continues, summer comes with high humidity levels outside of your home. Did you know humidity can increase inside your home, causing unwanted moisture build-up? Should you leave your bathroom fan on during the winter and summer? Are there more ways to eliminate moisture in your bathroom?  

Getting Rid Of Unwanted Bathroom Moisture And Humidity 

When taking a bath, the fog builds whenever you run hot water. This is due to the lack of airflow in your bathroom. You might also get condensation on walls after spending time in the shower or bath.

How Can I Avoid Too Much Moisture In My Bathroom?

Although proper humidity can be great for homes in winter – suggesting to continue to run bath fans while showering in winter to pull through the airflow from other parts of the house; if possible, shower with the door slightly open. 

During winter showers, one could turn off the fan immediately after a bath is finished and then open the door for humidity to escape and move to other parts of the home. Remember that excess moisture in grilles, motors, fixtures, drywall, etc., is usually never a good thing.

Venting bath fans properly with good connections, insulated flex duct without kinks or tears, good exterior vent louver positions, and proper thought process in the length of runs to not reduce the fan motor CFM effectiveness for standard operating capability.

Running bath fans in summer is necessary to remove all moisture/humidity from bathrooms or range appliances when cooking. We like to talk about proper run times on equipment and not oversizing equipment based on home size and layout/load calculations strictly for run times and dehumidification effectiveness in summer months. 

When air conditioning is running, it’s pulling moisture from the home’s air. Run times of that equipment are calculated precisely; we do not want to introduce more humidity in the houses in the summer months. 

How VICCARONE HVAC Can Help 

Viccarone will be making a positive change in main bath fan designs and deciding to move to BROAN humidity sensing multi-speed 110 CFM fans. BROAN 110 CFM smart-sense fans have been an excellent product for us. Still, this new product and control sensor could take the logic of humidity to a new level with auto-sensing. 

The new motor design will be a much more efficient product and continue to keep sone levels very low. In the new scope of supply chain issues, it's essential to have different alternatives for bath fans throughout the home building process.
