Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Install and repair your bathroom exhaust fan with these how-to projects.

  1. Use an In-Line Fan to Vent Two Bathrooms

    Venting two bathroom exhaust fans through one roof duct won’t work, sorry to say. But you can install one fan in your attic for both bathrooms, and make your bathroom quieter, too.
