Install the exhaust bathroom fan.


I am not sure this thread should be under construction or here.

Anyway, we have three bathrooms. Each has light on the mirror wall and one ceiling light which we never used. We are thinking it will be the perfect place to install the exhaust fans because the wires are already there.

I think I can install the fans but running the vents are the problem. Where should I run the vents to? How?

Out a wall or through the roof. Insulate the lines so there's no condinsation.
Your going to need three differant vents not all tied into one.

Vents need to go up and OUT of the attic - Out being the most important part. Don't vent into the attic, or into a soffit area - It will cause mold and other problems.

Venting through the roof is ideal. There are a variety of roof vents you can buy that will allow a tube to attach and keep rain and birds out. You will attach the vent tube (it wont come with the fan) to the fan, then run it up to the weather resistant vent opening you installed on the roof.

Go through the roof that means I have to cut the holes on the roof?

The house was built in 1998. I really have no idea why the builder didn't not put the fans there.
