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.
