Keeping a cool head when ventilating your space

Proper ventilation not only provides relief during hot summer months, it can also help protect the home from moisture and reduce energy costs. Here are some important things to consider when adding ventilation to any room.

Ceiling Fans

Comfort and style

Ceiling fans are a great way to add a cool refreshing breeze to living rooms, bedrooms, and even outdoor spaces.  Not only do these mounted fans help circulate air, they also add visual interest and light to any room.

An affordable alternative

Ceiling fans are extremely energy efficient (pennies a day) and require far less energy than centralized air.  Before hitting the thermostat to adjust the room temperature try first switching on the ceiling fans to recirculate the air. The effect may be surprising, especially if a home has very high ceilings. Most everyone knows that heat rises, our experience is that there can be a 20+ difference in temperature between the floor and the ceiling.  In the winter use a low setting to push down the hot air and create a longer interval between heat bursts from the heat pump.

Exhaust Fans

Adequate air flow

Proper bathroom ventilation isn’t just a good idea, it’s required by many building codes. That’s because adequate ventilation helps prevent moisture from building up in the room, causing mold, mildew, or other damage. Exhaust fans help draw out moist air to keep bathrooms dry and smelling fresh.

The size of a bathroom determines the amount of power needed to properly ventilate the area. Exhaust power is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM).

 

Other considerations

In addition to power, there are other things to consider when purchasing a bathroom exhaust fan like: style, noise-level, and HVI Certification (tested for quality). Remember to consider all of these factors when choosing the right fan for any space.

1 sq. foot of space requires 1 CFM. So, a 50 sq. foot bathroom requires a fan with a minimum 50 CFM. Large bathrooms may require multiple fans for adequate ventilation.

Can I install a ceiling fan myself?

If you’re trying to find a great way to upgrade a room for cooling efficiency, ceiling fans are an inexpensive way to go! However, you may be wondering if you can just install the fan yourself. 

The short answer is—NO!

Here’s the thing. Installing a ceiling fan involves rewiring electrical connectors from the new fan to the existing ceiling wires. These wires are often color coded and if improperly connected could cause light switch issues or possibly even an electrical fire. 

Some other reasons to consider hiring a licensed local electrician would be the risk of electrical injury to you during the installation. Handling any type of electrical system can be extremely risky and dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. 

Another consideration would be accidentally installing the wrong ceiling box. A ceiling box mounts the fan to the ceiling. Improper installation of a ceiling box. I don’t think we have to explain the dangerous implications of what might happen if the ceiling box is installed incorrectly! The fan could cause major damage to not only your property, but could injure you or others if it fell, especially while on!
