Vacuum Those Stinkies!

efiswitchOur house is so old-school, that rather than having a vent fan in each bathroom, we actually have electrical heaters. Sadly they look and sound just like a normal vent fan, so our guests often just run the heater thinking they are vacuuming the “stinkies” outside. In reality, they are just heating things up. Nice!!! If we actually had vent fans, this product from EFI might really grab my attention.

The clever folks over at EFI have developed a sneaky solution to moist and/or smelly bathrooms. It’s a light switch that when turned on turns on the fan and the light. When the switch is flipped off, the light turns off and the fan runs for a pre-set adjustable time. Of course, if your guests don’t know how this subtle device works, they might spend hours in your bathroom trying to turn off the fan. This minor drawback aside, this sounds like a great way to eliminate fans left on indefinitely, or ones that are turned off too soon.
Available from EFI’s Website, for about $40.

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.
