Water Leaking From Bathroom Exhaust Fan
Hello! We just had a new ductless mini-split installed on an interior wall. We have been using it for heating for about a month now. There is a small bathroom with an exhaust fan in the room directly behind the unit.
The other day, my husband and I noticed water leaking from our exhaust fan in the bathroom following a shower. Then this morning, my husband came and woke me up after his shower to see the ceiling. It is absolutely drenched, not just near the exhaust fan, but throughout the bathroom.
What could be causing this? And how do we fix it, quickly? I put the dry setting on the unit and left the exhaust fan on when I left for work, but clearly this is a major problem with the potential to cause irreparable damage.
I’ve perused the internet and all I could find are answers about the unit itself leaking or the area immediately around the unit having excessive condensation.
