Seeking Exhaust Fan Recommendations
I am needing to install exhaust fans in my bathrooms. (I have halogen lighting and underfloor heating, so am not interested in any of the IXL range).
I'd appreciate it…
I assume with that large a floor tile you are using some type of slot drain system to allow drainage.
