Possible to wire a bathroom exhaust fan to a ceiling light?

Need some advice from all you handy Planeteers. Let me start off by saying Im not very handy at all when it comes to shit like this but I'm going to try it anyway.

What I'm wanting to do is install a bathroom exhaust fan in a big walk-in closet. I'd like to install it right next to the ceiling light, would it be possible to wire it to the light so when I turn my light on the exhaust fan turns on too? If so any tips/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

First off, the exhaust fan needs to be vented properly so the exhaust is sent outside.

Secondly, your best bet is to purchase an exhaust fan with a light. Wiring a light fixture in series to a light sounds like a recipe for a fire.

Absolutely, and no need to turn the breaker off while tying it in.

Yes, it's not only possible, but pretty easy.

Turn the breaker off.

For the fan to come on when you turn on the light, just grab a piece of romex (that's the standard home wiring, with a black, white and green wire inside a white sheath), open up the light fixture and match the wires color for color. Take the other end of the romex and tie it into your fan, matching the wires color for color.

Turn the breaker back on.

Done.

If you have some monster attic fan or something, you need to check amperage. If it's just a bathroom fart fan, go wild.

And of course you have to cut the fan into the ceiling.

Romex doesn't have a green wire.

Yeah, You're right. It's just bare copper for the ground, not insulated in residential romex. Should have just said ground wire, not green wire.

Thanks. Everything is ready to go, just have to cut the hole, mount the fan, and wire.

Put some dryer sheets in the exit duct. That way it won't smell like marijuana...
