Bathroom ventilation and cooling

4637 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Thurman
I have a full bath off of the master bedroom that is on the east side of the house. It has an HVAC vent, but vent to remove moisture. There is a small window as well. The problem is the room gets too hot in the mornings and the better half says she can not do her hair and what not.

The two ideas I have are to add a vent and fan for the humidity and change the lighting to some bulbs that put out less heat. Are there any other ideas on ways to keep the room cooler?

We keep the AC running pretty cool thru the night, that room just seems to warm up quickly.

A high quality bath fan that moves plenty of CFM's could be installed in the ceiling or wall and vented to the outdoors. A good fan will suck the heat out of a small room like that in no time.
Thanks. I figured the lack of a fan was the main culprit. The two bathrooms share a wall so my plan was to install a vent and join it with the main bathrooms vent through the roof. I have found some DIY examples on how to do this with an inline fan between the Y and the roof vent. This seems easier for me than cutting through my wall and installing a seperate fan for the master bath. We typically keep both bathroom doors closed so I would imagine the right fan would create enough suction for both bathrooms.
