How To Install A Duct Free Bathroom Fan

Duct

I just found out that our bathroom exhaust fan has no duct attached to it. Our current fan is Panasonic FV-08VQ2 (90 CFM, 4' duct diameter). The fan just blows the air to the inaccessible attic. There is what looks like an attic exhaust close to the location of the fan but no duct (see white circle in the picture).

Step 1: Check The Duct And Housing Size. Before you even go so far as to purchase a new exhaust fan, you should take off the cover to the old one and measure the housing for the exhaust fan. This will be in between the drywall. This gives you an idea of how big the new fan should be. Learn how to install a bathroom fan with this tutorial. If you think it’s time for a bathroom fan replacement due to age or the level of noise, you'll learn. Frequently Bought Together. Price: Add to cart.
