NATIONAL REPORT—Bathroom ventilation systems recently introduced by leading suppliers are making it easier than ever to save energy and money while still keeping bathrooms free of odors and moisture. There was a time when fans were noisy and consumed up to 144 watts. Today they are almost as quiet as a mouse and can use as little as 4 watts—a dramatic difference. Motion sensors are now available with some models and turn off fans left running by guests. With some fans, a humidity sensor is included. This ensures that the fan continues to run until the humidity reaches a pre-set level. Inefficient fans can cause all kinds of mayhem for a hotel owner. Loud fans can result in guest complaints. Improperly sized or powered fans may not remove enough moisture. This can result in mold and mildew, ruined insulation and wood rot. Some older hotels have no ventilation at all in guestrooms. According to Jim Shelton, national sales manager, Panasonic Home & Environment Co., improperly ventilated bathrooms can result in indoor air quality issues.
