Title: Exhaust fan in steambath area
Post by: monty13 on September 26, 2012, 04:08:09 PM
I am remodeling a work out area in my home and I would like to have exhaust fans in 3 areas; bath, toilet and steam room. My issue is that I have another floor above me so there is a limited amount of space available above the ceiling. Can you recommend something for me?

I think we can help you with this issue but a have a few questions.
I'm thinking about one of our remote motor, silent exhaust fans with 3 vent grills. Like the SSL-T102 on our web site only with 3 vent grills.

 Do you have a place in the ceiling or wall where we can mount the remote motor?

I spoke to my electrician and after checking around he found on a couple of vent ducts but no space large enough to contain the fan motor so everything we do must be in between the ceiling and floor above.

Okay Jeanne, I have a plan B.
This is not my favorite choice but we could consider a individual fan grill with integral motor in each room. Then we can run the vent ducts to a central location and vent outside.
What are your thought on that?

Hey Alex, sorry it took so long to get back to you. Some of our construction plans have changed. My electrician decided he didn't need anything special in the toilet so he purchased a Nu-Tone self contained fan for that area.
Regarding the steam and shower area my electrician has found a crawl space above the bathroom that he feels will accommodate whatever you want to put in there. He said we could then run the flex ducts from the ceiling grills to the remote motor and then he needs to vent everything outside.
Thank you for your efforts and patience. What to I do now.
