Canadians find calm and serenity in "Home Spa" bathrooms

Provided By:

(NC)-For many Canadians the bathroom has taken on a whole new role. It has gone from a functional sanitary place to a spa-like sanctuary. It is now the room of choice in which to relax, rejuvenate and recharge from our frenetic daily lives.

The new trend is to establish a wellness room in the master bathroom where innovative spa-like tools such as air jet baths and therapeutic shower units deliver short and long-term health benefits.

One can now spend hours on end soaking in the luxury of an air jet bath filled with essential oils, mud or salts. This therapeutic refuge may be doing wonders for your body and soul but it may be creating long-term problems for your home's indoor air quality.

Unless your bathroom is properly ventilated your steamy mirrors, damp walls and fogged windows are more than just annoying, they could indicate developing problems like mold and mildew, ruined insulation, and wood rot. Spot ventilation solutions from manufacturers like Broan can clear the air quickly and efficiently, removing potential problems before they invite themselves into your home.

According to Matthew Cripps, Product Manager Bath Fans for Broan-NuTone Canada, reducing mold, mildew and other pollutants in the bathroom is a top priority, but it won't happen unless the fan is quiet.

"The number one complaint we hear from customers is that they hate their conventional noisy bathroom fans. Because they don't like the noise, these fans go unused and moisture, steam, and odours are not exhausted out of the house," Cripps explained. "This can lead to the growth of mold and mildew."

Conventional fans are noisier and less appealing visually than newer products like the Broan and Nu-Tone Quiet Series of Fans, he added. The Quiet Series Fans offer extremely quiet operation while also providing the most energy efficient operation. In fact, Broan and NuTone's latest series of bath fans are now ENERGY STAR certified, so they consume less energy and ultimately cost you less over time.

Speaking of energy, Cripps says customers are often confused by what they need in order to adequately ventilate the bathroom," explained Cripps. "Using a simple rule of thumb, 1 sq. ft. equals a need of 1 CFM, therefore an average bathroom of 100 sq. ft. would require a minimum of 100 CFM to get proper ventilation." And this is important if you're going to spend all your time reconnecting in your new bathroom spa. More information on bath fans can be found at
