Quality Bathroom Fans

The quality of bathroom fans can very a great deal. The biggest problem with the inexpensive ones is noise. Noisy fans tend not to be used. The better fans are very quiet and will not wake anyone.

Modern fans are rated in the amount of air they move and in the amount of sound they make. Air movement in measured in cubic feet per minute - CFM. In many cases a 50 CFM fan will do just fine for a bathroom.

Much more important in the sound made by the fan and that is measured in Soans. A fan with a soan level of less than 1.0 is quiet. We have one in our master bath that has a soan level of .3 - and that's great!
