I'm finishing off the basement in my new house and putting in a small
bathroom with shower stall.
Will I have to vent the room? If so, how? I suspect that since the
room is so small, the humidity will be a problem when the shower is in
use. especially by a teenager. I could vent it into a large storage
area behind the bath, but don't know if that would do or even be code.
I suppose I could put in a fan and run a flex drier hose through the
outside wall, but that would be a LOT of work.
This if further complicated by how to heat the room. The basement will
probably remain at a constant 55-60 degrees. I'll be putting in a gas
fireplace in the main area, but that will only be used only
Now the kicker: if I put in a small baseboard electric heater in the
bath, won't the vent just pull the heated air out and waste the
energy? Remember, this is a very small room, 7' X 7'.
And, if I put in a vent, will I have to put a grill in the door for
