    I moved into brand new place 8-9 months ago. A couple of months ago, the bathroom fan started making a terribly loud rattly noise just sometimes. Not on and off, but either it runs (relatively) quiet for the duration. Or it runs disfunctionally loud for the duration. I can't figure out any...

    I am installing an exhaust fan in a 1st floor bathroom and I am trying to decide on the exterior vent to use. Based on where the bathroom is and what it would take to vent through the roof, that route is not feasible due to its location. As a result, I plant to run the 4 in vent pipe parallel in...

    Hey There, I'm spray painting with cans of paint in a 12' by 20' one car garage with a 7.5' high ceiling. The fumes are quite toxic and need to be removed! I've read that you take your all 3 measurements and multiple them together to get your cfm for the room. Then buy a fan according to the...

    Hello, I just had a new propane boiler installed which is working well, but I have one question/concern about the install. Attached is a photo of the exhaust vent. It is oriented horizontally, so the warm air blows out sideways. I have two concerns about this. One, it is somewhat noisy (like...

    Hello folks, the previous owner used single-wall exhaust pipe for the furnace and it went up the chimney out the top of the house. What can I use to replace it? I've got 2x90 bends to make and about 16 foot upwards? Can I bore a hole in the side of the house that the furnace is near and...

    I'm replacing a non-functioning exhaust fan and light with a new unit and I wasn't smart enough to make note of how it was wired before removing the old unit. Unfortunately, the instructions that came with the unit are for a dual switch (?) and I'm having a helluva time trying to get both the...

    I read in Don Geary's article on extremehowto.com that Rinnai indoor gas heaters cannot be exhaust vented into another appliance's exhaust pipes since the Rinnai has a forced air exhaust, and presumably it would backflow fumes out of the other appliance (furnace, etc..). I am looking to...
