Many people just use large black trash bags secured with duct tape or bungi cords. Black bags won't deteriorate as fast as the white ones with the UV rays of the sun and should last one full winter.

If you're concerned about the neighbors complaining about the lack of asthetics....I can't help you.

I never cover attic vents nor recommend them to be covered, because a properly vented attic all year long ensures moisture removal from the attic area and from the insulation. Also if you have shingled roofing, each nail point extending through the sheeting will condense moisture and drip into the insulation in a non vented attic space. This happens many times each winter when the air temp and the moisture content collide on the dew point scale. It does NOT happen daily.

The nails conduct the warmth to the outside, cool down and attract the moisture from the non vented air on their exposed length and slide down to the tip dripping into the insulation. Moisture detracts from the insulations ability to do its job, and that's to insulate the living space from abnormally cold or hot temperatures.

The bathroom exhaust fan in our bungalow is leaking this past week every few days , we are not handy folks and so we are wondering what type of professional do we call in to deal with this leak and...


Sounds like the issue is simply condensation inside the exhaust pipe where it passes through the un-heated attic space. If you use the shower and the exhaust fan, lots of humid air is passing over the inside surface of a very cold duct, then running back down to your bathroom ceiling. You could get any non-specialist handyman to wrap insulation around that duct in the attic. But you can mitigate the problem by running the fan for a few minutes before you start the shower (thereby pre-heating the duct before you give it a blast of moist air) , and leaving it run for 20 minutes afterwards (thereby drying out the duct after use). Regarding the discolored ceiling, the handyman can apply some stain-covering white primer too.

Combo lite/vent fan/nite light affected by heat?


There's probably a thermal switch in the fixture which turns the fan on when the lights are on for a period of time and heat accumulates in the fixture. It sound like the heat from the attic is setting off the thermal switch. When the attic heat drops, the fixture works correctly.

This is a catch 22 situation, because if the upper housing in the attic is insulated from the attic heat, the insulation will prevent heat dissipation from the heat generated by the fixture's light bulbs. So, for safety reasons, the upper housing should not be insulated.
I'll need to work on this to come up with a fix.

Dayton Attic fan running backwards


First see if the switch has a reverse position. Sometimes you turn the fan assembly in the frame, sometimes you turn the whole frame around. Take the cover off the wiring compartment to see if there are instructions there. Also check on the name plate on the motor, there may be instructions there. Attic fans are usually engineered to blow out.

Attic fans


I just fixed a Broan-353 with a similar problem - the fan was short-cycling, turning on and off within a minute or less.

These fans have a thermostat which is designed to turn off 10 degrees below where it's set to turn on. Apparently, one failure mode is this temperature delta stops working I've had this happen twice, each time after about 3 years.

Replacement thermostats are available from Broan for about $30 http://parts.broan-nutone.com/broan/Shop It's a 10 minute repair if you have easy access to the fan.
