How big is the gap under your bathroom door?

It recommended to have at least a 1.5 to a 2 inch gap to provide enough air to replace what the fan is pulling out.

Ah, I went through this about one year ago.
My wife complained that her bathroom had too much moisture on the walls after her shower. This house was built in 1975, so I figured the exhaust fans in the three bathrooms were the originals. I purchased two "highly rated" exhaust fans. I forgot the brand, but they were each $130.
They were horrible. A little quieter, yes, but who really gives a damn when the shower is on? They worked so poorly, that I removed both and returned them to Menards the next day.

I cleaned up the old fans (blades/housing) and made sure the duct work heading to the roof was clear and the flappers were working properly (not sticking). The condensation problems my wife had in her bathroom were gone. And I can easily promise that if I held a tissue square up to the grate, it would be torn from my hands and blown out to the roof.

Hopefully these fans will last another 37 years. If not, I will make my own exhaust fans rather than buy the overpriced inferior bullshit available today.

I posted that I shower with the door fully open (I live alone) and I still have these symptoms.
