Do all bathrooms need a fan?

Most building codes require a bathroom fan if there's no operable window. Even if there is a window, a fan is recommended for consistent ventilation and moisture control.

How do I choose the right size of bathroom fan?

The fan's size depends on the bathroom's square footage. A general rule is to have a fan rated at 1 CFM (cubic feet per minute) per square foot of bathroom space, with a minimum of 50 CFM.

How can I tell if my bathroom fan is working correctly?

A properly functioning fan should clear steam from the bathroom within 10-15 minutes. If not, it may be clogged or require repair or replacement.

Can a bathroom fan be installed if my bathroom doesn't have one?

Yes, a bathroom fan can be added even if there's no existing fan. McCann Electric will assess your space and determine the best fan location and duct route for proper ventilation.

How do I reduce noise from my bathroom fan?

Choose a fan with a low sone rating (under 1.5) for quieter operation. If your existing fan is noisy, upgrading to a newer, quieter model can significantly reduce noise levels.

Can bathroom fans be controlled by a timer?

Yes, many bathroom fans can be connected to timers, allowing you to set them to run for a specific period, ensuring optimal moisture removal.

Are bathroom fans required in commercial restrooms?

Yes, commercial restrooms require ventilation systems according to local building codes. Our electricians ensure that your facility complies with these requirements.

What should I do if my bathroom fan isn't working?

If the fan isn't working, check the circuit breaker and switch first. If they are working, contact an electrician to inspect and repair or replace the fan as needed.
