Bathroom Ventilation Ducts and Fans

by Nick Gromicko, CMI® and Kenton Shepard 


Bathroom ventilation systems are designed to exhaust odors and moist air to the home’s exterior. Typical systems consist of a ceiling fan unit connected to a duct that terminates at the roof.

Fan Function  

 The fan may be controlled in one of several ways:
