A hot shower is a glorious thing and can melt away a rough day or get you going in the morning. Sometimes, the hotter the shower, the more enjoyable and soothing it is. However, hot water means steam and steam means condensation. Your bathroom needs a little help getting rid of the condensation otherwise the moisture can damage the walls, the flooring and the ceiling. An electrician in Burbank can help you prevent your bathroom walls from being damaged by moisture. The team at H Electric is ready to help you do what is necessary to keep your home safe from excessive moisture.
A bath fan is the answer to your moisture problem in the bathroom. Bath fans pull the steam from a hot shower out of the room and push it outside. This will keep the steam from collecting on the walls and causing warping. The constant moist, warm environment makes a prime breeding ground for mold and mildew. As you are aware, mold growth can be extremely dangerous to humans and could ruin a home’s value. Mold remediation is a costly venture. If you can prevent it, you should. It is important to keep a home as dry as possible to prevent any irreparable damage.
Bath fans can replace your existing light fixture in the bathroom or a new hole can be cut into the ceiling. Many of the fans available today have lights and heaters that will keep the bathroom warm providing you with a comfortable environment to step out of the shower in to. There is some wiring involved with installing the bath fan and you will need an electrician familiar with Burbank electrical standards. A light switch will also need to be installed to control the fan. If you would like to schedule your bath fan installation, give H Electric a call today.
