    Default Exhaust fan

    I'm putting an exhaust fan in by bathroom and the directions say it needs to be protected by a GFCI which makes sense. Can i just put it in down line of a GFCI outlet or do i need to use a GFCI breaker? is there pros/cons to either method? Thanks.

    Either way will work. The advantage of going off a local GFCI outlet is the you can reset it locally rather than going to the service panel in your bath towel.

    I agree with JL - Down line of a GFCI will work the best for the reasons stated.

    And probably a lot cheaper than a GFI breaker.
