Stay Fit and Healthy with Kitchen Exhaust Fans

You need to be aware of the fact that exhaust fans are integral to every kitchen. Not only do they minimise the humidity and odour within the vicinity, but it also provides the ideal ventilation as prevention against the dangerous build-up of dangerous gases. Portable exhaust fans for bathroom and kitchen fans are an important part of your home’s ventilation system. They remove odours from your house, which improves indoor air quality. They also remove moisture, which decreases the level of humidity in your house. High humidity can damage building materials and can cause mould growth. Mould may affect your family’s health. Thus exhaust fans can serve an important function in your house.

Kitchen exhaust systems usually have the fan and fan motor in the exhaust hood. Other systems use an in-line fan, which is in the exhaust duct, or a fan outside the house. In-line and outdoor exhaust fans are usually quieter than systems with the fan in the room. A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) also exhausts moisture and odours. An HRV is a self-contained ventilation system that provides balanced air intake and exhaust. Like a central exhaust fan, it can be connected to several rooms by ducting.

But while purchasing and installing portable exhaust fans  for kitchen may seem like a simple job, there are certain factors you need to consider before even purchasing the fan. Previously, homeowners could opt for any of the few available fan choices available back then, but today, there are countless and diverse options that have been developed over the years.

Capability: Every kitchen requires certain airflow for adequate ventilation. The airflow for all exhaust fans for the kitchen is measured in cubic feet per minute or CFM. If you need to calculate the bathroom’s minimum airflow, multiple the bathrooms’ square footage by its height and divide it by 7.5 to find the exhaust fan’s CFM rating.
