Best Bathroom Ceiling Fans – A Complete Buyer’s Guide

Considering a bathroom ceiling fan? Well, to shower or to bath, that is the question. Everyone has a preference, personally I love the shower. If I could I would live there under the running water for all eternity or maybe live submerged in water for all eternity as a mermaid (now there is a thought). Mermaids are awesome…I could even marry Aqua man and have lots of mer-babies (hehe shhh do not tell my hubby). 

Okay, I am regressing, where was I? Ah yes, for me it is showers: yes, bath: no. However, one thing always gets me when I am in the shower though, it is the fogging up and trust me, when you have an imagination like mine then fog is a BIG problem.

Best Bathroom Ceiling Fans

In a hurry and need a quick reference list?

I watched enough horror movies to know that nothing good ever comes from fog, well except Mr. Darcy as he walked towards Lizzie Bennet in all his handsome glory (whimsical sigh) okay technically that was mist. Regressing again, okay mist or fog, same difference. Usually never a good outcome so picture me showering while having one of my ‘concerts’ and as I spin dance to the groovy beat I’m singing I notice the fogged up shower doors. 

Immediately I envision hundreds of shadow hands trying to get at me or zombies yeah do not forget the zombies. As I scramble with my towel to fight my imaginings, I open the shower doors and out of the mist/fog floats a red balloon (yip, I watch way too many movies), I squeaky whisper, ‘Pennywise…’ as I lunge out the bathroom door screaming my naked tushy off. 

Soooooooo, ya we had to get us one of these best bathroom ceiling fans below before I gave myself a heart attack.

Pros

Cons

Broan-NuTone 765H80LB Bathroom Exhaust Heater and Light

Broan-NuTone 765H80LB has been rated as the number one Amazon’s Choice for bathroom exhaust fan with heater for a reason: it is small, effective, gets the job done and comes in two distinct sizes.

If you are a minimalistic person that needs to get their house integrated with electronics and products that can do multiple things at a time, the 765H80LB is an instant buy for your bathroom.

It has 3 circuits, one for the fan, heater and the light respectively.

Pros

Cons

Homewerks 7141-110 Bathroom Exhaust Fan with LED

Homewerk has worked really hard and created an extremely minimalistic bathroom ceiling fan that takes next to no space at all. If you have a small bathroom but prefer looks, the Homewerks 7141-110 is a great option that will blow your world.

Homewerks 7140-110-bathroom fan is easy to install with no-cut design and ceiling mount ventilation.

Pros

Cons

Delta Electronics BreezSlim SLM70H Exhaust Bath Fan

The Delta Electronics BreezSlim SLM70H is a considerably effective bathroom ceiling fan that is able to pump out all the heat and moisture out of the room automatically.
It is perhaps the first rendition on this list that actually comes with a humidity sensor. 

With its affordable price and a shape that actually looks like someone spent a lot of effort trying to figure out how to make an exhaust bath fan, you should definitely consider this product.

Pros

Cons

BV Ultra-Quiet Bathroom Ventilation & Exhaust Fan

BV Ultra-Quiet 150 CFM is what many people would call as the go-to option if they want a big bathroom ceiling fan that just works out of the box. Do note that this Ultra-Quiet 150 CFM fan needs enough space to ensure that it does not start rattling about, so think about the space you will need to fill before installing one.

We found this fan to be incredibly quiet, as it uses Silent-Clever technology, and most reviewers have a high-quality experience.

Pros

Cons

Panasonic FV-0511VQ1 DC Ventilation Fan

Panasonic is one brand that you will find in all household products: whether they be fans, ACs, TVs, refrigerators and even bathroom sink fans. Their brand name is more than enough for most people to buy them.

The WhisperCeiling DC fan is an exceptional product that you can confidently call the plug-and-play bathroom fan of your dreams. It even takes a pledge to be climate-friendly. The fan comes in three speeds: 50, 80 and 110 CFMs.

Pros

Cons

Broan-NuTone 9093WH Exhaust Fan with Heater and Light

Broan NuTone 9093WH is another Broan-NuTone addition to this list, effectively the fourth one. This one comes equipped with the most features of any fan in this list: it is an exhaust fan, heater, and light combo, effectively becoming a great deal for people who want multi-purpose exhaust fans in their bathrooms.

The shape and design of the 9093WH is a refreshingly good pro.

Pros

Cons

Broan-NuTone AE110 Single-Speed Ventilation Fan

The NuTone AE110 is branded as one of the most effective best bathroom ceiling fans in this list for a reason: it has over 460 5-star ratings on Amazon and is rated as the Amazon’s choice for quiet bathroom exhaust fans.

The design may look a tad old and outdated as compared to the other best bathroom ceiling fans on this list, but it certainly gets the job done and is available in both 110 and 80 CFM versions with or without a switch.

Pros

Cons

Panasonic FV-0511VQC1 DC Ventilation Fan

The WhisperSense FV-0511VQC1 is perhaps one of the best creations Panasonic has done in the last couple of years. It has been rated as a high star product on Amazon, which is considerably higher than most of bathroom ceiling fans on the platform.

There is a lot to like about the WhisperSense, ranging from its beautiful design to the ability to add a bulb inside the fan and so on.

Pros

Cons

Broan-NuTone AER110RGBL Ventilation Fan

The NuTone AER110RGBL has one thing that we really appreciate in its name: RGB. It is the ultimate product for gamers who want an RGB oriented bathroom as well. 

Nonetheless, even if you don’t appreciate the lighting, the NuTone ChromaComfort is a good buy: relatively less noisy and packed with 110 CFM of power. 

Uses Bluetooth technology for user-friendly mobile application features, giving your bathroom a touch of class.

Pros

Cons

Conclusion

Bathroom Ventilation is an under-rated prerequisite especially if you are paranoid like me. Make sure to empower yourself with one of these best bathroom ceiling fans for your own piece of mind and as an added bonus, for the reduction of mildew caused as a result of excessive moisture buildup. 

In my mind the first point is the priority because ‘I’ll feast on your flesh as I feed on your fear’ is something I don’t want to imagine being whispered to me from a fog filled bathroom …
