Bathroom Fitting

Extractor fan

Need to fit an extractor fan in a wc currently without any ventilation. Fan would go out into garage and then either through the roof or with a long vent to the front of the garage. Which is the preferable option and asre there any general factors I should take into account?

If it went out the roof it would need a cowl to prevent rain water entering.

The flow rate output of the fan would depend on it's efficiency over a long run, up to 5m should be fine. To run internally in a duct is an easier DIY install than the roof which will require a weathering sleeve and cowl and of cousre a climb on the roof!
