Bath fans come in various sizes for efficiency. Each bath fan will indicate the maximum square footage it can ventilate.
For ventilating modest sized rooms like a closet or bath.
A must for bigger spaces like a nursery or game room.
Perfect for a home theater or gym/recreation room.
Fan designs have evolved, and are now available with features such as a decorative light, heater, humidity sensors & more.
Installed one of three ways, bath fans can be installed as a ceiling mount - the most common, a wall mount or the versatile ceiling/wall mount.
The amount of noise a fan makes is an important consideration in choosing your fan. Be sure to check the sone rating. The lower the sone rating, the quieter the fan will be. A quiet bathroom fan will be rated at about 1.5 sones or less, which is about the sound of a quiet refrigerator.
It's important to keep stale and humid air out of the most essential rooms in our homes. That's why The Home Depot carries a variety of bathroom exhaust fans to fit all of your needs. When shopping for a ventilation fan you should consider the room size, sound level and light options. You can also shop for fans with features such as heaters, timers and specific decor styles.
To get started consider the size of the space you need ventilated. Once you know that you need a ventilation fan that will cover a small, medium or large range of square feet, you should determine the sound level, fan style and features you'd like to have. Remember that larger spaces will need more powerful ventilation to help filter out humid air, mold, mildew, dust, odors and chemicals from the room.
