Bath fans bring fresh air into a bathroom properly ventilating and removing moisture. Not only does this make the space much more comfortable but removes bathroom humidity. A bath fan plays a critical need to protect the bathroom's interior walls and to prevent dangerous and unattractive mold issues.
Choose the proper size bathroom fan is just as important. Should the ventilation fan not be powerful enough, it will not remove the moisture adequately within a reasonable time frame. Conversely, a bath fan that is too powerful may be too loud or energy inefficient for the space. Over-performing bath fans can also take away too much heated air in the winter or cooled air in the summer. This comprises the energy efficiency of the house. Questions?

How to Select
Selecting the proper bath fan for your application is important to maximize the lifespan of the fan and parts.Bath Fan Manufacturers:
Deciding which manufacturer to purchase from is important. Often times, manufacturers use different quality parts based on the given price point. Economy grade fans may use less durable parts and may have a slightly shorter lifespan. Whereas, higher end models typically are quieter, last longer, and have more power.CFM Rating:
The CFM rating of a bath fan refers to Cubic Feet per Minute. This is the volume of air that is moved by the fan during a 60 second period. The CFM rating is important in case you are installing the fan in an area requiring quick ventilation, such as a bathroom or kitchen. Bath fans that have a higher CFM rating will be able to remove smoke and steam much faster than less powerful fans. For small areas such as single bathrooms, a 50-100 CFM fan will suffice, however, for kitchen applications, for large bathrooms, or steam rooms, higher power models are recommended.
Most bath fans use a 4” duct to output the air from the fan. If you are replacing a bathroom fan, you will want to check the exiting duct size that is being used by your ventilation system to reduce further modifications. If your exiting duct size is limiting the amount of air flow through your system, you may consider using a larger diameter duct to reduce air pressure in your system.Bath Fan Types:
At Westside Wholesale, we sell many types of fans based on your preference. Combination bathroom fans include features such as night light, heaters, and humidity sensors depending on your needs.Fan Loudness & Noise:
Bath fans come in several ratings of noise level from Standard to Super Quiet. The output noise level is rated in Sones, to give a accurate measure of what to expect from your fan. Super Quiet bath fans can reach a Sone level as little as <0.3 Sones. At this level, the fan is virtually silent and produces less than 1/3rd the noise of a running refrigerator. The Sone level has a direct impact on the price point of the fan, meaning that less expensive fans typically generate more noise.Installation Application
If your application is a retrofit, than it is important to make sure the dimensions of the fan you select match the dimensions of the fan to be replaced to reduce rough in time and effort. It is also important to know if the fan is hardwired or if it has a standard outlet plug.
