An exhaust fan does its work silently without attracting much attention, but it’s an important appliance that helps keep smoke and stale air out while keeping your room well ventilated. Imagine a world without one, and you will quickly realize its importance. It’s the reason why we all have at least one exhaust fan in a typical Indian household barring a few exceptions.

So, if you are thinking of replacing your aging exhaust fan and getting a new one; then you have landed at the right place, as we have listed down a few essential points for you that will help you get a fan that’s effective, efficient and will keep functioning at its best when it comes to keeping your room well-ventilated.


Size and Location

Depending on where you want your exhaust fan to be placed, you need to keep the CFM or cubic feet per minute (a fan’s ability to move air) in mind. For instance, if you want to install an exhaust fan in the bathroom, then you will need to calculate the square feet area of your bathroom or kitchen vis a vis the CFM of the fan to get the maximum benefit.

Since 1 CFM is good for each square foot of area, therefore, if you have a bathroom or kitchen that’s 50 square feet, then get a fan with a minimum CFM of 50, and if you have a bigger bathroom, you now know the drill.

Getting Maximum Efficiency

The job of an exhaust fan is to keep stale air out and also the smoke in case you are installing it in the kitchen area. Therefore, being aware of the best place to install your newly bought fan can go miles in ensuring that the area is free of smoke and stale air whenever the fan’s switched on.

  • Always place the fan near the shower area or the bathtub when installed in bathrooms to tackle excess moisture and prevent molds from appearing.
  • In case you are placing it in the kitchen, have it installed close to the ceiling because hot air rises, and the fan can filter it out more efficiently.

It goes for everything without saying; no matter how good your appliance is, it can only function at its best if you put it at the right place. Therefore, to get the maximum benefit out of your newly acquired exhaust fan, have it installed in the right place for maximum efficiency.
