Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Dwelling unit bathroom exhaust fan has the exhaust duct run pretty far and it's not pulling any air.

Is the typical solution to this a booster fan or something else?

RE: Bathroom Exhaust Fan

New bathroom exhaust fan, with correct static pressure rating. Is there a reason why you'd install a second fan when you can just replace the original?

RE: Bathroom Exhaust Fan

How far?

Either make the duct bigger or install a more powerful fan. Read the t echo details on the fan units as to maximum length of duct.

Is the duct blocked or restricted somewhere.

No air movement or not much? Use a piece of tissue to see

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: Bathroom Exhaust Fan

If the ESP doesn't match the one that's already there, measure it and change the fan instead of putting in a new fan with its ducting

The problem with the world is that intelligent people are full of doubts, while stupid ones are full of confidence.

RE: Bathroom Exhaust Fan

What length, size, desired flowrate and the actual flowrate?
