I have an ancient old exhaust fan, no longer working, that is an eyesore and mouse freeway into my house. It's on an exterior wall and covered over by siding that needs to be redone/replaced anyway...How do I take this out to the inside and cover the hole w/ metal until the kitchen redo?
TYVM for any help...And the electrical has already been disconnected and capped to/from the unit.
If you plan on refinishing the interior and exterior later then a temp patch will be ok. Depending on how long it will sit like that will determine how good the patch should be. If it's a couple of weeks, leave the vent until the other guys work on it. If it's longer then you could cover both sides with some light plywood and fill the cavity with insulation or spray foam.
Don't leave it too long if it's not properly water sealed on the outside.
