3 Reasons You Need Your Bathroom Exhaust Fan Fixed

When was the last time that you turned the bathroom exhaust fan on?  Do you choose not to turn it on because it is broken, or maybe because it is too loud?  So many of us have bathroom exhaust fans that are decades old.  They may have gotten to the point where they just do not function properly. Instead of repairing them, though, we just let them sit there, thinking they do not harm.  As Jacksonville energy audit professionals, we want to stress that it is vital to have that bathroom fan fixed and to use it correctly!


#1 – Serve the Purpose


The first reason you need a working bathroom exhaust fan is for it to serve its primary objective:  You need that fan to be able to remove the moisture out of the bathroom.  That is the best thing the fan can do for many reasons.  So much harm can come from moisture that is just allowed to sit in the area.


#2 – Controlling the Odor


Without the exhaust fan, odor will build up over time. The fan will also dry up the moisture so it doesn’t sit and build up. You want to keep the bathroom ventilated to better the air quality. The odors can also be a sign of mold growing up within the exhaust fan, due to it just sitting and collecting moisture.


#3 – Removing the Fumes


There can be a lot of fume buildup within the bathroom as time goes by.  With a bathroom, all of the moisture and chemicals can build up over time.  A bathroom exhaust fan is going to dry all of that up so that you do not have those issues.  Health problems can crop up when these fumes are allowed to increase over time.  Small children, the elderly and anyone with respiratory or lung problems are going to be the most susceptible to these areas.


A bathroom exhaust fan can be a precious asset to have within a home.  The amount of moisture that can build up in a bathroom is the perfect recipe for mold growth as well as other problems to arise.  If you have a bathroom exhaust fan that is old or busted, take the time to have it repaired.  Our Jacksonville energy audit professionals will certainly point this out and stress the importance of it, should we observe such a thing when inspecting your home.

I will be recommending J&W to my friends and family. They were very professional and on time. Did a very well job in... a quality manner. Dustin, Mark, and Robert. Worked very well together and was in and out with no cleanup for me to do. Thanks so much for getting my home back to a cool environment.read more

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company again.read more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two men.read more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
