Hi all. Has anyone seen an windproufe, snowproufe bathroom exhaust fan that
vents through the roof? I have an roof vent that uses an polysteyrene ball
but it sometimes freezes or bounces around in high winds. Would like to
find something more reliable.
I sincerly hope your joking the excess moisture can cause mold and rot
troubles. never vent a bath fan into a attic
We never use the shower in that br.I looked up there. seems fine. The
inspector didn't say anything about it.
It would be easy to vent but since I don't use the shower in there I'm not
going to worry about it. My other br has vaulted ceilings and doesn't seem
to need a fan.
Do you know if the inspector actually saw it? If he did, he's an
obvious hack because as others have pointed out, this not only is a
code violation, it's a very bad idea.
since we really don't use the br i'm not worried about it. you're right he
probably is a hack. i can easily run a vent to the side of the house. if i
ever sell i'll take care of it. i looked around the vent and couldn't see
question. how do you know it's a code violation if you don't know the state
i'm in? TX is pretty relaxed with building codes from what i've seen.

bathroom fans and good-quality roof vents (avoid the cheap aluminum
ones) that are fairly wind-proof and snow-proof.
For higher quality we installed a Fantech DLX-150 (Fantech Inc.) in
the attic which vents two bathrooms to the outside simultaneously.
Fantech also carries an excellent heavy duty vent that goes through
Do NOT vent into the attic; that's asking for future problems
regardless of your climate. In most places it's not even legal.
And ignore the small town Americans who know only one language
(bastardized English) and think the entire rest of the world should
communicate in their local dialect. Those guys need to stop living

Mine vents in the attic, but I ran 4" rigid duct from the bath fan up
close to an existing power attic fan so at least the air is guided
out of the vent. I could not see putting another hole in the roof. Its
been like that for years, so far no problems.
