Frequently Asked Questions
When should you operate the fan? According to the HVI (Home Ventilation Institute) bathroom fans should only be operating for about 20 minutes during and after a bath or shower.
Should the fan be left on all day or left on all night? You especially should never leave the fan on all of the time. If it is run too long, it can overheat and become a serious problem and fire hazard.
Tree Frogs & Lizards are also indigenous to our tropical climate and will be around all of our properties. These are good for the environment and are not anything that we treat for! You may find the occasional one has gotten into the property and not made it out - or has gotten in and is hopping around. There is nothing wrong with this - it is part of our local environment.
