Provided below is a brief explanation of the most common exhaust fans available. Use the links at the bottom of the page to find out more detail throughout the site.
Wall Mounted Exhaust Fans are installed on an exterior wall. These fans are best installed in areas where they would not destroy the interior design of the house. The most suitable areas to install these fans would be the laundry room, garage, kitchen, attic, washroom, bathrooms and storage areas that are situated next to an exterior wall.
Ceiling Mounted Exhaust Fans or ceiling hugger fans, like the name suggests, are installed on the ceiling, and are oftern combined with lights. There aren’t many areas in a house that these fans can be installed, apart from a restroom. Most of the time, ducting is required when installing ceiling mounted exhaust fans as the stale air will run through the duct and out the home.
Exterior Remote Mounted Exhaust Fans can be a little noisy but the noise will not be heard inside the house as these fans are mounted outside. Air ducts will also have to be installed.
Kitchen Range Exhaust Fans will prevent different kitchen odors from spreading throughout the home since they are mounted inside the range hood directly above the kitchen stove.
Inline Exhaust Fans also will require ducting to be installed since these are mounted in between the ducts. These fans are also hidden which makes them very quiet.
It is important to remember that the size of the area where the exhaust fan will work determines the size and power of the exhaust fan required. It would be important to hire a building contractor that is familiar with the size requirements of the different types of exhaust fans.
