How to vent exhaust fan through attic gable vent
Our house for sale is under contract (yay!!) and the inspector noted that the bath fans exhaust....nowhere. :) The master has flexi-tubing that ends in the attic. The gable vent is about 2' away from the terminus. I believe that I just need 3 more feet of tubing and some silver tape. The vent has no screening on it, so I was going to staple some screening up to the interior to keep the birds and beasts out and butt the tubing up to the gable vent.
Please correct if this is delusional or unsafe or if I need a flippy directional thing like a dryer vent has. I cannot download any NC building codes and most how-tos are for roof vents. Thanks!
