    Wow, so setting up a bathroom vent requires some calculations to be done. That’s another thing added here in the to-do list for the neighbor’s vent: Calculate the CFM. Thanks for the formula, Charles and Hudson!

    Remember to check out also your insulation when installing these exhaust fans, as ceilings are the number one passageways of any house’s indoor air temperature. Your heater and air conditioning (just in case you want to make your bathroom even colder. LOL) will be put to waste if you don’t check out your insulation well.

    Yes, that’s right. An accurate calculation of a bathroom’s size, width, and length can help determine what type of exhaust vent needs to be installed. If the right exhaust vent is installed, good ventilation and air circulation can happen in a room or space. And that can help gradually eliminate unwanted odor inside the bathroom.
