YES!!!! all a window does is change the vapor into liquid. What is needed is to get the moisture OUT OF THE building. I prefer Neutone 200 CFM unit, for get specs, they are all way too low. You are combating health issues if you allow moisture to remain....mold...

Also, the exhaust ducting needs to run downhill as it exits the building, or you risk moisture dripping from the fan...

Futher, put a 60 minute timer on the fan, and run 45 minutes (at least) for every shower....

Can I connect two bathroom fan ducts to a single roof vent?


No, both cannot be connected to same vent.
Or vent exhause from 1 fan will vent into other bathroom.
All house vents require separate duct.

When I'm in my bathroom and showering the light turns red- what does this mean- Mold?. moisture?


The simple answer is moisture. If you have a bathroom exhaust fan, be sure to run it during and after you're showering. Typically, for a bathroom exhaust fan to reduce the moisture properly, it should remain ON for at least 15 minutes after your showering is complete,

Hope this helped to answer your question.

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.

My Bathroom Extractor Fan does not work properly and for some reason the bathroom smells of cigarette smoke when the upstairs neighbours are at home!! Our landlord say's this is not possible!!!


Yes, very possible!. The bathroom fan is connected together, and the upstairs one is down-drafting to you. Have the exhaust checked for blockage, or buy a fan that has a built-in damper that closes the exit when not in use.

I recently had a fan installed in a small bathroom (5x8). The mirror and windows still fog up even when I take a brief shower. A few minutes after the water stops running, the moisture does seem to clear...


On the assumption that your bathroom is 8 ft high, then the volume of air in the bathroom is 5x8x8 or 320 cu ft. Even if your fan is 80 cfm it would take 4 minutes to completely exchange the air. Leaving the door slightly ajar would assist.
To overcome a similar problem, I installed a second fan with a push button 10 minute timer so the fan runs for a few minutes after I leave the bathroom.

Bathroom exhaust fan 16 years old and noisy. How to fix?


One drop of 30 wt oil at each bearing will quiet the thing for a while, but you will eventually want to replace it. Also consider the whole fan is about the same cost as the motor, and easier to find.

New bathroom venting in basement bathroom.


Install a window mounted exhaust fan if you can discharge to the outside of the house surrounding atmosphere.But undercut the door of the batroom to allow air coming in into the room.Alternatively firt a door grill 600 x 150 mm size which is more expensive.THe size of the fan should be 50 to 100 l/s of air flow.

Moisture on bathroom exhause vent


the fan is pulling too many cfm (cubic feet per minute).you can replace the switch of the fan with a potentiometer type switch (this works like a light dimmer)you can reduce the speed of the fan,or you can use a couple of synthetic fiber filters to trap the condensation.good luck
