Bathroom exhaust vent

Posted by jim on January 6th, 2001 09:50 PM

I recently installed an bathroom exhaust vent.
I seldome use it in the summer months because
I have an glass block window,with an vent,in my shower
that I just open to let out the steam/moister. In the winter
months I seldom use the fan and just leave the door
open so that the moister goes out of the bathroom and into the
hallway. The reason being is that my house is very dry
during these months and I just let the moister filter through the
hallway and into the house to provide some relief to my family and I,
(although temporary).
I have yet to install the venting on the fan that goes into the attic
because I'm not quite sure which type of venting is best for moister.
(i.e. flexible stainless, or plastic etc etc.)
I would like to know your thoughts on which type of venting to choose/use
and when installing the vent how exactly to vent it through the attic ceiling.
To better explain it I have a ridge vent along my roof and was thinking
of having the vent just come right up to it
and out of the attic.
I would rather do this than cut a hole in my roof
to vent the tubing from the fan.
