Default Re: Bathroom Ceiling Fan

if you are asking for the National Electrical Code reference for having a ceiling fan installed in the shower/bathtub zone as defined in the NEC without getting CODIE on you...its 8' vert. from the threshold of shower shall or rim of bathtub up and 3' horiz. out. This zone does not allow ceiling fans in that specific zone and is all emcompasing.

Well I cant resist....the NEC section is 410.10(D) (2011 NEC)
