    Default Laundry Room Exhaust Fans

    Exhaust fans terminating at an exterior location are required in bathrooms lacking a window. Does any one know if laundry rooms equipped with a laundry tub require exhaust fans as well. I was unable to find mention of it in the IRC.

    Not required. I wouldn't bother putting one in my house, but I do see them on newer houses. The dryer alone pulls out plenty of air, plus we're trying to keep humidity inside in our climate.

    Someone mentioned that they were required on some of the former codes, but not in IRC as far as I know.
    But if they are there, they do need to be vented directly to outdoors just like bath vents.
