What are your thoughts about this wall mounted exhaust fan in shower stall.
[FONT=Comic Sans MS]It’s not GFCI or identified as protected. I understand that the NEC does not require exhaust fans to be GFCI protected. While most fans for this type of application doin the manufacturer instructions require GFCI protection, I would recommend a GFCI is required especially since this is a damp or wet location. Fan is also not clearly marked “Suitable for Damp Locations”
And what about the fan location, does it seem a little close to the shower head, I know for a light fixture the NEC, article 410.4 (D) basically states that no light fixture other than a recessed-type can be mounted within 3’ horizontally and 8’ vertically from the top of the bathtub rim or shower stall threshold and of course this is not.
