Bathrooms are spaces in the home that are necessary and you want to have as much privacy in that room as you can get. However, you might also want to ventilate the space. On a nice day, after a hot shower, it can get stuffy in there. And bathrooms can also get stinky and you might want to air them out. There are lots of ways to increase the ventilation in bathrooms, including installing replacement windows in Huntington Beach, CA or considering other tactics. Here are a few to consider.
Install A Fan
Most bathrooms already have overhead fans, but if yours doesn’t, you might want to install one. You can run the fan any time someone is in the shower to keep the space from fogging up too badly. You like heat in the bathroom when you step out of the shower, but at the same time, you don’t want mold to grow so keeping things dry with a fan is going to help that issue. If you already have a fan and it’s not working well enough, you might want a stronger one or a second one in larger bathrooms.
Use An Oscillating Fan
While overhead fans can help, you might want to run an oscillating fan in the space when you want to circulate the air coming in from another room. It’s a good way to get the air moving in a space that can otherwise feel small and stuffy. You might use this after a shower, while you are getting ready, or on a nice day when you want fresh air to come into the room from another room.
Put In Windows
If your bathroom doesn’t have a window, you might consider putting one in. Of course, you need to remember privacy, but there are things you can do with windows to give you privacy and ventilation. You could, for example, put a sliding window up above the tub so it’s high on the wall and no one can see in, but you can open it and ventilate the space when you want to. You could also put a window above or next to the toilet, but get fogged or etched glass. Again, no one can see in, but you have ventilation options.
