How To Install
Aero Pure recommends a licensed professional should install your new bathroom ventilation fan.
But there are a few things you should know about the fan’s installation …
Installing Your New Bathroom Exhaust Fan
Only install a properly sized fan for your bathroom and ventilation needs.
All ventilation should be ducted outdoors- not into the ceiling joists or attic.
Bathrooms with ceilings greater than eight feet may require additional ventilation.
The bathroom door should be undercut at least 3/4″ so that fresh air may enter the room.
An enclosed toilet room (as in the master bathroom) should have its own ventilation.
Fans approved for installation in wet areas should be located over or very near the shower or tub.*
Aero Pure recommends non-perforated four-inch diameter duct which allows for easy installation between and through both eight- and ten-inch ceiling joists. Larger diameter duct may become an issue of ease-of-fit and compromise the intergrity of both the ceiling joists and the exterior aesthetics of the house. Always use the duct diameter specified for your ventilation fan. Reducing the duct diameter will reduce the fan’s performance CFMs and increase the noise sones in your bathroom.
Windows may be a bonus to airing your bathroom out, but they are not a solution for comfortable indoor air quality. An open window may be a source for humidity, cold or hot air, dust, noise, and may even be a security risk.
There are ventilation fans available with very efficient motors that allow even powerful fans to operate quietly and cost effectively.
Yes! Even the very best fans will operate poorly if installed improperly. To ensure quiet cost effieicent operation use smooth duct with as few bends, elbows, and angles as possible.
Technological improvements in ventilation fan design have significantly REDUCED fan noise. Look for products with HVI-certified sound ratings of 1.0 sones or less for super quiet ventilation.
