    The Inside Outside Guys: Sound advice

    Years ago, the Inside Guy received a call from a custom home builder seeking some advice. It seems a customer was having humidity related issues in a laundry room and master bathroom.

    The builder had done as she should have by installing larger capacity exhaust fans in both spaces.

    The problem we discovered was that the fans were so noisy, the homeowner did not like using them.

    Our solution? Install low sone fans and wire them to the main light switch in each space. The occupant will turn them on without knowing and the quiet fan will not bother them. Problem solved!

    A sone rating is a linear index of “noise” with 1 sone roughly equal to the sound of a quiet refrigerator.

    You can purchase bath fans today with ratings as low as .3 – three times more quiet than that appliance!
