Venting a bathroom exhaust fan
We are remodeling our bathroom, and we are installing an exhaust fan for the first time. The contractor is planning on venting the fan by laying behind the screen for one of the eave vents (we live in northern California, and our home doesnÃ¯Â¿Â½t have soffits). That seems like it may be an issue for moisture even where we live, although he said he does it all the time and has never had a problem. The other alterative he suggested was putting a dryer vent through the 2x4 under the eave. That seems better, but it will still exit under the eave and relatively close to eave vents. The bathroom is approximately 20 feet from the nearest gable wall. It seems like the best alternative is a roof vent, but the contractor says putting more holes in the roof is not a good ideal.
