Bathroom Remodeling – Palo Alto – Exceed the ventilation guidelines
The lead article (the table of contents if you will) is titled Bathroom Remodeling.
The critical natural of proper bathroom ventilation can not be overstated.
Whether you are putting in a good fan during your bathroom remodeling, or replacing a weak fan with a new one, get a good one!!!
There guidelines states that you add a certain CFM (cubic feet per minute) for various devices (see chart at right).
A very common guideline is you should have 8 air changes per hour.
With the 8 air changes per hour:
- a standard bathroom that is 8 feet long x 5x feet wide x 8feet tall or 320 cubic feet
- 8 air changes an hour then requires a fan rated at 40 CFM
However……. The incremental cost of a more powerful fan, plus the cost of any added electricity to run a more powerful fan, is nothing compared to the cost of tearing apart your bathroom in five or eight years due to water damage.
So we recommend you get the most powerful fan you can reasonably fit.
If you can fit a fan in there that will do a full air change in 90 seconds, there is no reason not to.
You might also have the added advantage of your mirrors not being fogged when you get out of the shower.
