Can You Install Air Conditioning in Your Bathroom?

Air conditioning systems are often installed in homes during remodels to add an extra touch of comfort. Or your house might have been built with an AC system that doesn’t go all the way to the bathroom. While every bathroom should have a source of ventilation, home builders often use other methods, such as windows or vent fans, to meet this requirement. 

As you may already know, simply opening a window isn’t always the best way to cool down a steamy bathroom. You can put air conditioning in a bathroom, and it’s worth exploring the benefits of choosing to do so during your upcoming home remodeling project. Keep reading as the professionals from Forever Builders, the experts in every aspect of home renovation San Diego homeowners have trusted for more than 20 years, discuss the advantages of having AC in your bathroom.

Prevent Moisture Damage

Mold and mildew can begin to grow within less than a day in areas that are constantly wet. Unfortunately, this growth can often occur in areas of your bathroom that aren’t so visible. Over time, you might find evidence of mold growth through health symptoms that begin to arise. Coughing, sniffling, and other annoying symptoms are possible signs a poorly ventilated bathroom could be contributing to your distress. During your bathroom remodel, the contractor will alert you to signs of moisture damage. If the issue is extensive, cooling the bathroom can help you protect the new materials and your health.

Care for Nearby Fabrics & Upholstery

Many bathrooms today connect to closets and dressing areas where you might hang your favorite clothing or keep a comfy chair for changing your shoes. If the steam from your bathroom vents to this area, you could start to see damage to your wardrobe. Air conditioning provides climate control that prevents so much steam from occurring, which can save nearby carpets, clothing, and other fabric items from deteriorating.

Reduce Foul Odors

Mold and mildew create a musty odor that’s noticeable to many people from the moment they step into a room. Bathroom odors can also arise from other causes that all improve with better circulation. While the bathroom AC vent can also be closed during times when you don’t want the extra air, it’s worth leaving it open to bring fresh air into the smaller space to prevent unsavory odors.

Increase Your Comfort 

At the end of the day, your home should be your oasis. The same is also true about the bathroom, where you may spend a large portion of your day getting ready for going out into the world and preparing for bed. During the summer, bathrooms tend to get hot. Sweating while you apply makeup deters you from feeling your best. You may also resist taking the hot shower you need after a workout if the bathroom is already sweltering. 

While you may leave your bathroom door open to allow air from the other rooms to enter, this isn’t always enough to keep you cool when you’re using heated appliances or running hot water. If you dread getting ready for the day due to discomfort in the bathroom, air conditioning may be all you need to change your mood.
