Exhaust Fan Repair and Replacement

Saskatoon Exhaust Fan Repair & Replacement

Protecting Your Home from Mold Growth & Foul Odors

Although we tend to not think of all they do, exhaust fans are vitally important devices in our homes. They help eradicate smoke and cooking odors in the kitchen; they also help reduce moisture and prevent mold growth and rust from occurring, especially in the bathroom. Additionally, without a properly functioning exhaust fan, your paint is more susceptible to peeling, water stains will occur, and your smoke alarm may be activated more often.

At Centennial Plumbing, Heating & Electrical, our experienced electricians can assist with exhaust fan repair and replacement in Saskatoon. When you work with us, we will arrive at your property equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment to get the job done right. We won’t rest until we’re sure you’re truly satisfied.

How Long Do Exhaust Fans Last

If you own an exhaust fan, you can expect it to last around 10 years with regular maintenance. Regular maintenance will help it last longer and run effectively throughout the year. Shall your exhaust fan be nearing its lifespan and constantly needing it may be time to consider exhaust fan replacement.

How Long Do Kitchen Exhaust Fan Hoods Last

Many people have exhaust fan hoods in their kitchen, and while they don't last forever - they last a bit longer than bathroom exhaust fans. Generally, these kitchen hoods last roughly 15 years with routine care and maintenance. Again, routine cleaning can extend the life of the fan, but they do need to eventually be replaced.

Should you Repair or Replace Your Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Determining whether to repair or replace your bathroom fan depends on several factors. If your bathroom exhaust fan is approaching its expected lifespan, which is typically around ten years, it may be time for a replacement. Additionally, if you find yourself frequently requiring repairs for the fan, it might be more practical to opt for a replacement. If you're uncertain, consulting with a local electrician is advisable.

Common Exhaust Fan Problems

Although they tend to be ignored, exhaust fans receive frequent use which will lead to inevitable breakdowns. Fortunately, there are common symptoms that something is wrong.

We recommend calling our Saskatoon exhaust fan repair specialists if:

  • Your kitchen gets unusually smoky or hot
  • The vent pipe is plugged, pinched, or damaged
  • The fan housing is dirty
  • The blower wheel fails to operate
  • The switch or motor is dead
  • It is extremely noisy when operating

When we arrive at your property, we will perform a thorough inspection and assessment of your exhaust fan to expertly diagnose the issue at hand. From there, we will discuss your options for repair and whether we think a repair or a replacement would be most cost-effective. In order to prevent costly repairs or sudden replacements, we recommend getting routine maintenance at least twice a year to ensure everything is functioning as it should.

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.

We offer upfront, honest pricing every time. To schedule service, call (306) 500-7392 or send us a message online
