Energy-efficient bath fans prevent moisture damage

Modern energy-efficient bath fans are not only quieter and more energy efficient – but they also can help reduce moisture damage and provide proper ventilation.

Excess moisture has tremendous potential for damaging bathrooms. Long-term exposure to excess moisture and humidity can crack and peel paint and wallpaper, ruin wallboard, warp doors and rust cabinets and fixtures. Without control, it can even cause deterioration of joists and framing above the bathroom. Modern bath fans are often equipped with humidity sensors to help prevent these issues by ensuring proper ventilation and moisture control.

Overall, a new bath fan provides several benefits to tenants and property owners alike. Energy Trust offers up to $50 for upgrading an existing bath fan at a multifamily property. For more information see our web page on bath fan incentives.
