Need less fan than fantech?
We have a pretty standard-sized bathroom (~5x9 including tub/shower alcove), and I'm not persuaded that we need a fan as powerful or expensive as the much-vaunted fantech. The bathroom ceiling where the exhaust fan would mount is directly below the very shallow attic eaves, so the motor in the attic cannot be any real distance from the bathroom. Given that, would we be missing out on the major benefit of the fantech?
We have no fan in the bathroom now, and the walls rain every time we shower. So we know we need a good exhaust fan! I'm prepared to be talked into or out of a fantech, but I don't want to be spending extra money on benefits (like super-quiet) that we wouldn't get no matter what.
