Perhaps it's a regional thing as i can assure you most fans aren't designed to be deliberately noisy, at least here in the UK, the trend is towards whisper quiet fans that operate at around 26d B which is barely audible in most bathrooms.Another thing to keep in mind is that the fan itself may not be fitted properly, e.g.In fact they ended up helping us out on our do it ourself backsplash work that we probably should have been charged.Just a real good company and a real good experience for myself and my family.
The crew made sure our little dog was safe and away from the bathroom when we weren't home.We are very pleased and now have an amazing kitchen. He kept his equipment area tidy and did a thorough job of keeping on…ve with his ideas, communicated to me throughout the project, AND WORKED DILIGENTLY (and long hours) to stay on schedule. He was friendly, hard-working and had great advice on the bathroom install that he did for our home.
However, my friend in the USA insists her fan is much louder and that she can barely hear herself think whilst it's running.
So perhaps there are regional differences at play here too.
