Adding an Air Vent Vs. a Window to the Bathroom

Everyone loves to take long hot showers, but those long showers could be damaging the bathroom. One
of the most damaging thing to the bathroom is the mist that the water creates. This is why having an air
vent in the restroom can help in more ways than one.

Air Vent
An Air vent can help circulate the air in the restroom so that it does not get as misty. The air vent will
help protect the walls and the paint. The mist could really damage the paint and walls by creating a
mold. This mold could be dangerous if not taken care of and if it is left to grow. The vent will help suck
up the moisture in the restroom so that the mist not to affect the wall. Another way a vent can help is
that it gets rid of the smells that come with the bathroom. The air gets circulated and allows the air to
stay fresh. The is one thing can make people not want an air vent, and that is that the vents do create a
bit of breeze, but there is a solution, they have vents that have heater attached to them, so you add one
of those to the home.

Windows
Some homes have windows to get the mist out, but it is not always the most effective. One reason
windows are not as effective is that during the cold months, no one wants to shower with the window
open. Showering with a closed window allow the mist to get trapped in the restroom and possibly affect
the paint and walls. Windows are very effective as long as you keep the window open. This is great for
hot summer days but not so much during the winter. The benefit of having a window is that you can get
the natural sunlight and don't always have to turn on the light, so it allows you to save a little.
These are a few of the things that should be considered when you decide to remodel your bathroom.
