    Question

    We are remodeling our house and main upstairs bathroom is no longer surrounded by any external walls. Because of this our HVAC contractor says we don't need a supply vent in the bathroom. We think that having fresh air/heat in the bathroom is imperative and there is now a skylight in the bathroom so the room will still be exposed to some external sunlight/cold. We live in Minnesota so there are many cold mornings where you would want to have plenty of heat in a bathroom. What should we do? Thanks so much!

    Have them put supply. You can always shut it off.

    Say, "I want a heater in my bathroom, and I am willing to pay for it."

    One thing I should add is that there used to be a supply vent in this room, but it was removed by the HVAC contractor. Don't we need a supply vent in this room?

    Should have a supply... Who wants to wake up to a cold bathroom?
    It should also have an exhaust fan that vents to the outside.

    Thanks for the advice. Both my the general contractor and HVAC sub-contractor are telling me that we will be fine, but your advice confirms my doubts. Thanks again

    Get a supply register installed! No brainer.

    Hmm Diffuser In Question

    Actually, a re-evaluation of the contractor may be the Real Question.
