location of ac vent in bath


renovating full bath, with stall shower. does it matter if ac vent is above shower? i remember my last house the metal vent always seemed to have some condensation on it from bathroom steam. would it be bad/good idea to put it above shower , or better away from shower. obviously the whole ceiling gets steamy, i figure if it dripped it would just be into shower, thanks

That depends. Do you like cold air blowing on you while you're in the shower, or when you've turned off the water and have yet to towel off?

I usually install them in the middle of the room, dunno exactly why, but that's the way I was taught/told to do it.

wasnt talking about cold air blowing down, was asking about steam condensing on cold metal grill,(which usually directs air across ceiling- not straight down) and dripping onto bath floor. thought maybe would be better to drip in shower, never had central air in a bath before in my last houses,wasnt sure if condensation would be a factor. . and yes i know about proper bath venting, but still the room will get steamed up a little
