Venting Bathroom Fan through Attic to soffit vent, vancouver island


Vancouver Island location - fairly wet mild winters. Is it okay to vent a bathroom fan through an unheated attic space to a soffit vent at the side of the house. Soffit vent would be about 15 feet from the fan - will be using metal ducting to get air from fan to soffit vent.

No can do; You're going to have to go through the roof. And don't forget to insulate the pipe.

Is it a vented soffit or solid soffit ?

Solid soffit OK
Vented soffit not OK as the moisture can re-enter
