1. Code compliance problems. Study shows 48 percent of bathroom exhaust fans evaluated failed to meet ASHRAE 62.2 required airflow, according to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. 

2. Warranty issues. If a new house isn't properly ventilated, it could experience mold and mildew or be damaged by moisture over time, triggering the warranty. 

3. Increased callbacks. If ventilation fans are not moving air effectively, you could receive complaints about moisture in the bathroom that causes foggy mirrors, odors, mold, and mildew. 

4. Liability concerns. Poor ventilation can lead to structural problems throughout the home and can have a devastating impact to the occupants' health. 

5. Reputation. If a new home's indoor air quality does not meet their expectations, homebuyers are quick to report through social media.
