Replace the duct hose for bathroom exhaust fan, what kind to use?
I am going to replace the exhaust fan in my bathroom (it is located in the side of the soffit that is above my tub, and was wondering what type of duct work is best to use to connect the fan to the opening in the wall to the outside?
Right now, there is about a 3-foot piece of ridged flexible hosing, that kind of resembles a vacuum hose, only 3" wide. It was actually disconnect from the fan when I looked inside. It must have worked it's way loose over the years.
I was wondering if this is the best type of hose to use? Or maybe a rigid type of smooth duct work would be better?
I took a quick look on the Home Depot website, and they don't seem to have any specific type of duct work or hosing for bathroom exhaust fans that I could find.
The do have some flexible hosing (some that are insulated too).
What would be best?
