In response to Re: RE: Insulating for Bath Vent Fan?
As there is no heat but the fan motor, I would well insulate it, normal fiberglass will work fine. As to the duct, if you are in a cold climate it should be insulated to reduce the condensation on the inside. Foil covered insulation is available at home centers just for duct work. I would also use the metal flexable duct not plastic.

: Hello, on the advice of this board, I just received and installed a panasonic vent fan for my upstairs bath. The fan is a ceiling mount and thus sits in the attic area. How should I insulate around this thing, the instructions don't say anything unless I missed it, also the duct leaves the fan turns 90 degrees, and 3 feet over to the outside. Do I insulate this pipe? How should I do this, bury the thing or what? Thanks in advance
