Not sure if this is the correct place for this topic, but here it goes: I'm in a new construction phase as a owner/builder and need to vent two bath/ceiling fans from the master bath. Can I share the ducting to vent and exit to an outside wall for two fans? The problem is that I have long runs (about 10-12 feet) to an exterior wall due to the configuration of the joists.

Thank you ahead of time for your help!

Check out single & multi port in-line ventilators: http://www.broan.com/product-category.asp?CategoryID=573

Additional thought: The multi port in line ventilators allow up to 4 intakes and combine into one output. Also, consider installing one intake in the wall at the toilet level to remove odors. The ones in the ceiling work good for steam but not too well for smells.

Doyle, thanks for the help. I'm wondering though (and I checked your link out) will that unit as best you can tell fit between and "in" joists? My joists are 16" on center and 2 X 12's. Thank you...

Yes, those in-line units will fit in the joist space but not wall spaces. They are designed to be placed in the basement or attic spaces and will fit. May want to request more info from company. Usually can order through one of the local home Depots or L-O-W-E-S.

Try a remote fan made by Fantech or another supplier. I used one to ventilate two baths. The fan is in the attic, and there is almost no fan noise in the bathrooms.
