How Much Does It Cost To Install A Bathroom Fan?

Mar 14, 2024

Have you ever gotten out of a hot shower, just to have the room veiled in a mist so thick you can’t even see yourself in the mirror since it’s covered in steam? This is a sign that your bathroom exhaust fan is not properly functioning. Excess steam build-up can lead to mould forming, interior paint deterioration and unpleasant odours lingering in your home. 

Many factors can contribute to an inefficient bathroom fan, with the two most common being: 

  1. Too small of a fan for the size of your bathroom
  2. Old age of the fan (bathroom fans are built to last an average of 10 years)

But how much does it cost to install a new bathroom fan? We’ve broken down the costs to have an installation performed by one of AJ’s Electrical’s expert electricians. 

While the total cost of a bathroom fan installation is fully dependent on the work required, average quotes usually sit between the price range of $520 to $645 plus GST for basic replacements. This quote includes 2-3 hours of labour and the cost of your new Panasonic bathroom fan. However, if any venting work is necessary, then additional labour and material charges may be required.

Here at AJ’s Electrical, we supply and install the Panasonic WhisperFit Bathroom Fan. This fan is rated for 50 CFM, 80 CFM and 110 CFM – with the latter being ideal for most bathroom sizes. It is also one of the quietest fans on the market at as low as 0.3 sones.  While the average bathroom fan has a lifespan of 10 years, Panasonic fans are renowned for their long life span. According to Panasonic, their fans are designed to provide continuous operation for a minimum of 30,000 hours and have a typical life of 100,00 hours. In other words, that equates to close to 11 and a half years of function without ever shutting it off.

This fan is designed for retrofit applications, which means that during most installations there will be no damage to the ceiling. The fan’s design allows the installer to avoid drywall repairs.  And like all services provided by AJ’s, we guarantee that all materials provided and installed by us will come with a 1-year parts and labour warranty.
