How Installing an Exhaust Fan Timer Saves Money

Exhaust fan timers provide many benefits for your home. Exhaust fans can be installed in basements, attics, bathrooms, and even kitchens. A timer will let the fan run for a certain amount of time, then automatically shut-off.

Unattended Bathrooms

It’s a habit for many people to leave the fan on as a convenience to the next user, but the constantly running fan can wreak havoc on your electric bills. A timer will eliminate that worry. You can install a timer that will automatically shut the fan off after a designated amount of time. Doing so will allow your fan to consume far less energy than letting it run for hours at a time.

Attics and Basements

Many people use exhaust fans in their basements and attics to prevent problems which are caused by humidity, such as mold and rot. While this is a great way to save your home's structure, it also increases your energy bills. A timer that allows the fan to run for only 10 minutes every hour will save a lot of energy, but still allow the fan serve its purpose.
