Kitchen and Bath Ventilation Makes it Fresh

The purpose of local ventilation is to remove things you don't want in your indoor air, such as moisture and smoke, from areas in your home, such as the kitchen and bathroom. Installing adequate ventilation helps to alleviate many common household problems. It also helps to control moisture and remove objectionable odors.

If your ventilation fan is older, noisy or not doing it's job of clearing the air, it's time to consider upgrading to an ENERGY STAR® certified model. ENERGY STAR ventilation fans:

  • Use less energy than standard models
  • Provide quiet operation
  • Feature high performance motors and improved blade design, providing better performance and longer life.

A sound investment

ENERGY STAR ventilation fans come with many benefits for your home. Certified fans that include lighting use 70 percent less energy on average than standard models. Noise level and performance—which differ according to fan type and airflow—are also important.

Local ventilation fans come in a variety of types: bathroom/utility room, in-line and range hood. Each differs in terms of where they are best applied (kitchen or bathroom) and in terms of performance (airflow and efficacy). Make sure and choose the right model for your needs.

Overall, upgrading your ventilation fan provides a breath of fresh air, making your home more comfortable and efficient.
