The Home

If you plan to install or replace a bathroom fan or bathroom exhaust heater, there are some things to know about electricity and safety:

  • Find out if you need a permit or certified electrician to do the work.
  • Before working with electricity, turn off the power.
  • Make sure the power is off – test the wires with a voltage meter.
  • To safeguard against accidents, lock the panel box to keep anyone from turning the power on while you work.
  • Wear safety goggles and a dust mask for protection.
  • Follow manufacturer’s installation instructions.
  • Don’t overload the circuit. Size your equipment per circuit amperage limits.
