Select The Right Fan For Your Space
The proper bathroom exhaust fan should be selected on the basis of performance, style and features.
The correct air movement capacity is an important consideration. Air movement is typically measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). Ventilation rates based upon eight air changes per hour are generally suggested. For most bathrooms this works out to one CFM per square foot of bathroom area. For example, a 7' x 10' bathroom would require a 70 CFM fan. A 50 CFM rating is recommended as a minimum for bathrooms 50 sq. ft. and smaller. Larger bathrooms require additional ventilation capacity. The following chart can be used as a guide for proper bathroom ventilation.
How To Locate Your Model Name
There is a product label on and or inside of every Zonex fan. On this label is the certification info, performance data and warning information. Most importantly is the model name. You will need this information when requesting for replacement parts or servicing.
What Are Sones?
A sone is an internationally recognized measurement for loudness. One sone is equal to the soft hum of a refrigerator in a noiseless kitchen.
