Wiring – Why are the bathroom light and fan wired to the same switch?


In my apartment my bathroom light and fan comes on at the same time. Is that standard for an apartment?

Best Answer

Many apartment owners wire the fan and light to a single switch. The reason I have done it is to limit moisture build up. Not all renters are responsible enough to turn on the fan while using the shower. Failing to do so can cause moisture to build up and allow mold to form.
