Exhaust Vents through Walls and Soffits

Materials/Tools Needed

  • Spray foam (spray can or two-part) and/or polyurethane sealant
  • New ducts and foil tape (if required)

Homeowner Tips

Keep the exhaust fan clean to ensure adequate ventilation. Use a vacuum or duster to regularly clean the fan and inside the housing.

Consider replacing an old and noisy bathroom fan with a new quieter and more energy efficient model at the time of this work. Look for a fan that is Energy Star® qualified with a noise level of less than 1.0 sone.
