central exhaust system

Washburn's picture

I would like to provide a central exhaust system for two adjacent bathrooms. Are there opinions as to the best units in the $200 to $300 range?

Fantech is what we use for (post #209911, reply #1 of 2)

Fantech is what we use for bathrooms that are close to each other.  The Fantech motor mounts in the attic or ceiling space and has one outlet that vents to the outdside.  The inboard side of the motor had a "y" to connect the duct work for each bath.  The fan-only ceiling grill is nice and clean looking like a recessed light trim.  Wiring a single fantech motor for 2 baths is simple too.  Bring the feed to the motor and drop a switch loop down to each bathroom's switch location.

Is it Fantech that has the nice light-ex. grill combo's?  Used a couple in a remodel a few yrs ago and they look nice-saves the penetrations too.

I'd also recommend a backdraft damper to the exit side of the fan box (of which I think Fantech both reommends and supplies.
