Bathroom Exhaust Fan / Heat Lamp wiring question


Timer Switch # 1 (to heat lamp) / Timer Switch # 2 (to exhaust fan)
Both timers are 5 amps and have Black, White, and Ground wires.

I want to wire both timers to work a Bathroom vent fan / heat lamp separately.

White / Black / Green wires come from Fan side

White / Blue comes from heat lamp side.

Can anyone tell me how to wire this correctly?

Three-wire from your supply source to the fan assembly. I normally use the red for lighting (heat lamp) and the black for the fan (exhaust). Check the wattage of the lamps you're going to use because you may need a dedicated circuit for this as to not overload the existing circuitry. If you're installing this in attic space and you should vent to the outside, use a minimum 4" flexible insulated venting kit.
