How to shop for a bathroom ventilation fan?
- Get the right size fan for your room.
- Energy-star rated
- Need a durable, quiet motor that won’t overheat.
- Noise level is measured in “sones”, so less than 1 sone is quiet (0.5 or 0.3).
- Compare features:Do you want a led-light, movement sensor, adjustable speed, timer?
- Measure to see if the bracket will it fit between the rafters in the attic above your bathroom ceiling?
- For a 5×8 bathroom we like the basic Panasonic Whisper FV-0511 VQ1 model.
