Bathroom exhaust fan question.


Let's see if I can explain this properly. We have had a downstairs bathroom for over 25 years. We just recently had to remove our shower, which led to the tile being removed etc. Any way we are now doing a complete remodel. We have never had a problem with mold or mildew on the ceilings and we have never had an exhaust fan either. I would like to put one in but can't find any way of doing it. Let me try to explain why starting from the far side of the room and working my way across.
Beings this is the basement, in this room there are ducts. The heating duct takes up the first two options for placing any exhaust fan ducting. The next set of joists are taken up by the ducts for the furnace to the outside air. The next joists have a 5" duct for our tankless water heater vent. This is probably our only option for our fan ducting so it would have to be a narrow fan that would take up only 8" and is also a low profile. It would also have to attach on the lower two inches of the joist because there is the pipe there. I will send an attachment if I can to show you what I mean. The next joist would work but our bathtub drain is right in the way of the outlet to outside. The final one would work but it would have to go in the shower because the return vent takes up the space where it could go. I just may not be able to get one in unless someone knows where to find a small one some place. If it does not have a big CFM then it would be worthless anyway so I hope someone knows what I can do.

Well, I found something that will work. The fantech PBW110. It is an exterior fan that is outside. Is anyone even on here?

You can also use an in-line fan, and install the intake grille high on on a wall instead of a ceiling.

I just have no where for it to go on any wall. The only, and I mean only way for it to work was to go this route.

D you have a window in the room? If so, you don't need an exhaust fan. If that is the only way to go, go with it!
