Replace a Bathroom Vent Fan

Filed Under: Kitchen & Bath

Does the vent fan in your bathroom makes a mysterious clicking sound? Has it stopped working entirely? No need to hire an expensive contractor -- you can replace it yourself.

A broken bathroom vent fan can cause all sorts of problems in a house -- beyond fogged up mirrors and windows. Trapped moisture in the bathroom can cause mold and mildew and ruin the walls. So it's important to keep your fan in good working order.

Installing a new vent fan is not difficult but, as with any project involving electricity, you have to be extra careful. Shut off power to the bathroom circuit at your electrical panel before you get started. And remember, it's always good if you can repair your old fan. Go online and order replacement parts from the manufacturer. You can also download the manual from most manufacturer's sites should you need it. If you want to replace an older vent fan with one that includes heat and light, or if you want separate fan and light controls, call an electrician.
