How to Shop Extra Quiet Bath Exhaust Fans
Every time we purchase a new household appliance we often think about the dozens of variations and possibilities. Any device, which is used within a small family realm, should perfectly meet the requirements and demands of all family members. It is not a secret, that a high quality bathroom exhaust fan is an extremely useful home appliance that can easily refresh the air in your bathroom, saving homeowners more time away from their daily chores. Only one wise decision can make you forget about such problems as moisture, fog on the mirrors, stale air and unpleasant odors, mold and mildew accumulations, dangerous fungi and must.
Among all the evident benefits successfully combined in this small electric device, there is one more extremely important feature. Amidst various types of bathroom fans the most popular are the extra- or ultra-quiet models. This type could be especially useful for families with little children. While the new exhaust fan works, protecting the whole family from moisture and related diseases, the kids are sweetly sleeping. What a harmony!
In order to select a suitable extra-quiet bath exhaust fan it is necessarily to follow several tips. All the bath fans characterized by whisper silent workflow depend on two main features: CFM value and Sones value.
CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute and measures the volumetric flow of a bathroom exhaust fan. In other words, this value shows the overall power of a bath fan. The CFM level shows the volume of pushed through air. The efficiency of a bath fan also depends of the CFM number and fan’s general application. A 50 CFM bath fan will be quite enough for a standard bathroom size under 50 square feet. For each extra square feet it is recommended to add at least 1 CFM.
Sones are responsible for the general noise level. Mainly all the powerful bath fans emit a sufficient amount of noise. In this case it is necessary to look for the lowest sones value. 1 Sone noise level can be compared with a running refrigerator. That is why, looking for an extra-quiet model of a bathroom exhaust fan, a customer should choose those devices that are featured with a noise level below 1 Sone value. Just think which level of noise you can tolerate during 15 – 20 minutes. This time will be enough for air cleaning inside the bathroom.
Silent workflow is only one out of many other benefits provided by this type of household appliance. If you are interested in a clean bathroom, free from bacteria and convenient for daily usage, it’s highly recommended that you install a bathroom exhaust fan. It will not only protect you from dangers connected with moisture and mildew accumulation, but also become a faithful ally in home economy and efficiency.
