Top Exhaust Fan Installation related questions

There are many benefits to hiring a Tasker to do this for you. For one, you don’t have to worry about unpleasant smells or foul air permeating your kitchen or bathroom after your exhaust fan goes on the fritz. You don’t have to worry about finding a local handyman and adjust your schedule to have them install the new fan once they're available.  

No, you have no obligation to supply these to your exhaust fan installers. They come prepared with the right tools, equipment, and the requisite skills and experience to do your exhaust fan fitting. You need only provide the raw materials for cutting or widening holes for the exhaust fan if required. But if you have tools that can help your installers work faster or make it easier, feel free to lend these to them.

The time it takes to complete this service depends on the complexity of the installation. If it’s to replace an old kitchen exhaust fan or replace a bathroom exhaust fan, then this can take less than an hour. But if a new hole must be cut into a wall or ceiling for the exhaust fan fitting and attach it to a duct and external vent, this can take at least 2 hours.

Yes! If you offer this as service in your business and provide other services like electrical work, kitchen renovation or bathroom renovation, you can hire Taskers to assist you. Taskers can boost your workforce when your business is short-handed, and there are more jobs than you can handle. Remember to mention the reasons why you want to hire Taskers for the job, as this can help set expectations and avoid potential misunderstandings or confusion as to your hired Taskers’ roles.  

It’s entirely possible to install an exhaust fan even if you can’t access your attic. Whether it’s a bathroom fan installation or kitchen fan installation, the process is similar and not that difficult. When installing a new fan, follow the instructions but take care not to saw through any wires, pipes or ceiling rafters. If replacing an old fan, take care not to make the hole wider or damage the wiring.

Installing a bathroom vent through a wall isn’t a one-way-fits-all procedure. You first find the right spot, so the fan effectively expels air from the bathroom and out through an exterior wall. Then cut a right-sized hole for the fan, so there are no gaps that let insects or drafts to enter. After cutting a hole, install the fan and connect the wiring. While you can do this yourself, it’s better to hire an installation expert to get it right.  

What do Exhaust Fan Installation services include?

Exhaust fan installation services include all the activities necessary for proper fitting onto a wall or ceiling. Whether it’s to replace an exhaust fan, perform a bathroom fan installation or kitchen fan installation, your installers can cut a hole onto your wall or ceiling for mounting. If none exists, they can install the fan and do the wiring.

Some installers can connect the exhaust fan to a duct and connect it to a vent to expel the air outdoors. You may also request installers to do the wiring so that the fan activates whenever the bathroom or kitchen light is turned on (or have the fan wired to a separate switch).

Creating a mounting hole

If your bathroom exhaust fan installation or kitchen exhaust fan installation is new, for first-time fittings, installers will have to find a right spot on your wall or ceiling. They will, of course, consider where you’d like them installed, then use stud finders or similar tools to check if the spot is safe to cut into. There may be rafters, pipes or wires in the way, so installers will first check if the area is clear, then proceed to cut the right-sized hole for the exhaust fan fitting.

Replacing an existing exhaust fan

If your exhaust fan fitting is to replace an exhaust fan or replace a bathroom exhaust fan, your installers first remove the old exhaust fan. They can take the old fan off its mounts and detach it from its wiring, taking care not to damage the wall, ceiling or damaged wiring. They proceed to install the replacement fan, following the manufacturer's instructions. Some exhaust fan installers can make adjustments to the hole if the replacement fan is too large or small.

Installing the exhaust fan

Once the hole on your ceiling or wall has been made or adjusted, installers proceed with placing the exhaust fan. They can ensure that the fitting makes a perfect seal, so no drafts or insects enter the space and no moisture or condensation forms around the fan. 

Connecting the wiring

Next, your exhaust fan installers do the wiring. Your handyman can splice the installation of the new fan to the bathroom light switch or kitchen light switch. Or if you prefer, they can install a separate switch to allow independent activation of the exhaust fan. This option may involve more complicated wiring work and some carpentry to make a hole in the wall for another switch. 

Connecting the air duct and vent

Your handyman should be able to connect the fan to an air duct and vent to expel the air from your kitchen or bathroom out through the roof or exterior wall. To do this, they can cut out a hole on your wall or ceiling of the appropriate size, then attach the fan to the duct leading to the vent.
