Can exhaust fan/heat lamp combination unit be installed above shower?

+1 vote
I'm building a larger shower in a bathroom and existing exhaust fan/heat lamp combo happens to be within new shower perimeter on the ceiling. Should I move it away or it's fine the way it is now? Thanks

Hi Darek,

Only if this particular fixture is listed / approved for such location. You'd have to look for a label affixed to the fixture that states that it is approved for it, just like one on the picture below.

Bathroom exhaust fan listed for over the shower stall installaions
