HOW TO INSTALL AN EXHAUST FAN

HOW TO INSTALL AN EXHAUST FAN


Yes is this a recording? Hello my friends
in this video I will show you how to install an exhaust fan in the bathroom.
Nice piece, I picked it up at Home Depot. BY the end of this video you guys be able to have a nice ventilation on your bathroom. let’s work, my friend I just got this out
of the box, this is the exhaust fan, we have those bracket on the side.
Let me grab my hammer and put this guy in. Should be nice and easy. Ho, bracket is a little bit too long
between the joists, I will have to cut it. Okay let me bring it down cut it, just
gonna use this old tin snippers so I just gonna cut a piece in there, well, it
should do it, if you don’t have a tin snippers , can use a rack saw, let,s, put it up, I just gonna use these joist here, this space, yeah this the space ,I think is the best one to go, it just fit good I’m
gonna leave half inch down to allow for the drywall, half below the ceiling for the drywall. I gonna bang the brackets in. It is not very good this way, I banged it with the hammer, but did not go in the wood, so I gonna use something different. I gonna use some screws, first this is one thing that you guys could do, if you’re gonna use the half inch a drywall to get the
right measurement you just can put 1/2 inch right there and just pop few screws
in. If gonna use like five eighths or
double-layers, you just have to get the references from there. When you’re doing the exhaust fan you have to set it up to be flat with the finishing drywall, or whatever finishing you gonna to use, I gonna put it just one eights higher than the drywall and I gonna use self-drilling screws to go through the metal. Now instead of bang with the hammer, i gonna put few screw on the brackets I did not really like the set up very much
the set up of the clamps here. Now we have it on place I’m just gonna make a pilot hole that way
have a reference where I gonna make the four inch of hole on the outside,
I gonna make it from inside. The fan is on place, I just gonna put
that the exhaust pipe. I just gonna run it in here, inside and
it gonna go outside. It’s an exterior wall so it gonna go straight outside. Yes I have my pilot hole, now I gonna go
outside and make the four inch hole. We are outside here here with all this vine,
this is the pilot hole that we drilled from the inside, now I just gonna check how
this vent gonna fit in here. First I gonna use this one to mark the
hole, this is the pilot we drilled from inside, let’s see if we can mark this. There you go looking good. Let me recheck with this one. I don’t
have a hole saw on hand I gonna use this guy just to go around and cut it. This fits on the hole good outside. So I gonna adapt this aluminum piece, the duct piece
on it try to fit it in there but it just see, it just doesn’t fit so we have this pliers
here, all we do is something like that. Now what we do in here? Just put some tape You guys can see, silver tape they are very good, wrap all way around. Silver duct tape good piece to have. Hello hole it’s done, it fits good
I’m just gonna seal it and I put some 100% silicone, good stuff clear. I would put some in there. Usually you don’t need to do all that, but I do just in case. we don’t
want the air coming out on those little hole and humidity go inside wall.
The bottom is very important not to put anything. The bottom side you just
leave it open in case some moisture in. Because I don’t have the space, I just gonna make sure I got this right I’m just gonna put this one before I put
it up I’m just gonna put some silicone in there making sure the water does not go in behind it. This is rust resistant screws. These screws are deck screws it doesn’t go rust, they are good screws to use. Hey, now we have the screws on, I have
already a silicone on top I just put on this sides. The bottom side, we don’t put the silicone because, in case some moisture getting just drip
to the bottom. Okay let’s go inside. We have a four inch flex pipe, that we gonna use in here, to make life easier. Make sure it is not gonna touch any sharp stuff. Yes here i just connect this one to the pipe outside, i just gonna put on some tape and we be good to go. Okay we’re just gonna put the silver tape,
this tape like I say it is good and strong. Just go around with it, pull this part out. In this case here the white pipe went on the outside of the silver pipe. And just to
let you know we not doing it right now because we gonna do all the insulation later on, this we will fill in with spray foam insulation Hey guys so now we just get to cut
this one off, just gonna cut this pipe off, is just just plastic PVC with a wire in there, I just gonna use the snipers to cut it off. I just gonna put it back there not gonna have the whole roll of tape in there, because it will get a tangled up. The good
thing about this tape, you can just wrap it around like that, just to show you guys, then you can go on tight space with it. once you have in there you just
pull on this side, there you go. You guys can see he is very tight to the
choice but you still can make it, nice and tight. You guys wants to see it
again? Just do it like, make sure it a bit lose go tight back there and then you just pull this part out. There you go. Nice and easy to work with
I just gonna put a little bit extra in here to eliminate any escape of air, I
just don’t want the moisture to to escape inside the ceiling so. I know
sometimes you say that it does’t looks pretty, but it does the job. Let me see what
they have in here, so we have this wire coming here for the fan, this one is comes, this one is the one we put in to bring power, this one is the fan, I just
gonna connect them together, just to let you know power is off for now. Don’t do
this if you have the power on. Nice piece can’t complain I’m just gonna put one of this pieces to protect the wires, make sure the wires gonna be on a good
spot. The green wire from the fan goes to the ground who come from the wire that we just installed. Everything should be in good working order. Okay right now guys we just connecting
the switch for the fan and we’re gonna check to see if gonna work, just gonna
connect ground to ground we push it back in, gonna connect neutral to neutral and positive to the switch.
Okay okay guys let’s turn this fan on and let’s see how it works, there you go and
is own running good and i tell you one thing, it is very quiet very quiet, I can say for the many fan that I installed, this is a quite one, okay let’s step
on the side let’s check to see how it is working out there. Hello guys okay that is working good and nice, like I say we can fill in a bag of air. It is working good. We make update video on the progress of
this renovation, we will link them on this video. All the tools that we use in this
video will you link on the description Silver tape, nice one to have, work very good, strong glue just to put around the pipes and run on all the
connections for the vent, we use some of this four inches pipe, just cut a piece
of to connect to the cup, this is the four inches flex pipe for the exhaust
fan easy to work with, have a vet cup for the exterior, you got measuring tape, all
the time we need them, pencil, tin snipers work very good, we use this drill, nice piece working good, I use it to make a pilot hole, we use this drill a Dewalt 18 volt drill we just use the modified
battery, we use some silicon to seal on the exterior, we use this one to cut the
hole because I just don’t have a 4-inch hole saw, yeah a sawzall this works very
good, it is a very good tool to have also Dewalt. If you have any comment post it in there, and if you have any question just let us know and we have some great stuff coming up
