The bathroom is typically the smallest room in the house, making it easy to overlook when seeking out energy savings. But it’s also the room where lights are often left on and the fan can be left to blare away unnecessarily.

Think twice before deciding never to run your bathroom fan again, though. Proper ventilation in a bathroom is important for not only keeping the room fresh but also preventing the growth of mold and helping maintain a healthy home environment. Without a bathroom fan, you’ll need to open a window to ventilate the room, which is not efficient — especially on hot and humid (or chilly) days.

Here are two simple ways to cut down on energy waste in the bathroom.

Install a Motion-Sensing Fan

If you don’t want to mess with wiring, or you’re in the market for a new bathroom fan, a motion-sensing fan is your best option. These fans are rated highly by Energy Star for their cost-efficiency. They come with or without an LED light, and you can adjust the timer depending on how long you want the fan to run after the room is empty.

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. 🔨 They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to ⭐ WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans 🤗
