Protecting Your Home from Mold Growth & Foul Odors

growth and rust from occurring, especially in the bathroom. Additionally,

to peeling, water stains will occur, and your
smoke alarm may be activated more often.

- The vent pipe is plugged, pinched, or damaged
- The fan housing is dirty

costly repairs or sudden replacements, we recommend getting routine maintenance

When to Replace Your Exhaust Fan
Much like all of our other appliances, nothing lasts forever and there
will come a time where you will need to replace your exhaust fans.
At Centennial Plumbing, Heating & Electrical, we recommend replacing your exhaust fan when:
It is slow to power up: If you have an older unit, it may begin to appear sluggish at the start.
This is a sign that it is on the brink of failure and we recommend replacing
it right away.
It fails to turn on: First, we will check the switch to ensure there are no problems with that.
Next, we will see whether there’s an issue with the circuit breaker.
If we can’t find anything to repair, we will suggest replacing your unit.
It makes unusual noises: Any loud clanking noises are not normal and need to be checked out by an
experienced Saskatoon exhaust fan replacement specialist. These noises
typically indicate issues with bearings, signal failure, or unaligned blades.
When you work with us, you can rest assured we will uphold our values of
honesty and integrity. We will never suggest a replacement if a repair
is possible. Customer satisfaction is at the core of what we do, and we
won’t leave until we’re sure you’re happy.
