Some codes require this, kind of obnoxious, I think. If your local codes dicate 24/7 fan operation, install a high quality fan with LOW SONES, (sones is measurement of sound). I prefer 200 CFM or better.

My bathroom Broan exhast w/light makes a constant clicking / tick tock sort of noise when the fan is not running. as soon as I turn the fan on the noise stops and then stops after I turn the fan off, only...


remove the cover and clean anything in the vent , check the fan for anything that could be touching it, as the back draft comes through the vent, something could just be touching the fan blade as this draft makes the blade turn slowly, which would create a ticking noise

Is there a way to vent a basement bathroom without cutting into the cement foundation


What is in the room above the basement bathroom?
And how large is the diameter of the vent pipe you need to run?
Do you have a maximum number of elbows, and runs of feet maximum you can't exceed?

Is the Frame wall above the foundation, accessible by going up thru the ceiling of the bathroom, and the elbowing over and into the outrside frame wall at that point?-- and then up a ways, and then out thru the outside wall?

Another possibility would be: How far to a window, or vent already in the basement?-- Could you run the piping there, and then out?

How thick is the concrete wall?-- Is it reinforced Concrete-- or just Masonry Block wall? A block wall is not as hard to get thru--

I know I asked a lot of questions-- but maybe it helps you think thru your options?

Le4t me know if I can help further.

I have two bathrooms directly under each other. The hinges on both cabinets (under the sink) are rusted and the pipes going from the wall to under the sink are also rusted. There are NO LEAKS ANYWHERE in...


You can't stop condensation or humidity in the house, especially in the bathrooms. A few choices: replace the hinges, or oil the hinges with WD-40. Install a vent fan (even though you have a window) and replace the pipes with PVC pipes. Metal drain pipes will always rust, because they drain water. Replace all under sink drain pipes with PVC

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.

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
