How Much Does a Bathroom Fan Cost?

Bathroom Fan Prices


An exhaust fan is a very useful device in a bathroom. Itís something you shouldnít do without. It will help clear away excess moisture from a hot shower or an unpleasant smell. The moisture from a shower can damage paint, add unwanted humidity to your home, and fog up our mirror so you canít get ready. Thereís no need for me to explain why you want to get rid of a bad smell. Thatís an obvious one. A bathroom fan will take care of both of these problems and make your bathroom a better place.

Bathroom Fan Cost

You can buy a bathroom exhaust fan for $25 to $60. This will buy you a ceiling fan with about 100 CFM. This Broan 671 Ceiling and Wall Mount Ventilation Fan will adequately ventilate a bathroom. It wonít look fancy or provide light but it will certainly move the air up and out like you want it to.

It will cost $200 to $400 for an electrician/handyman to install a bathroom fan. Where you fall on the cost spectrum will depend mostly on location of the fan in the home and how difficult it will be to set up exhaust vent. The more complicated that is the more it will cost.
