sharing exhaust (dryer/fan) possible?


Our existing bathroom vent fans we're "rigged" to exhaust through an attic vent. I need to redo the dryer vent as well and I'm wondering if I can combine 2 bathroom fans and the dryer into one 4" exhaust.

If not, can I at least combine the 2 bathroom vents into one exit from the house?

I'm trying to limit the amount penetrations through the sheathing/siding...plus less work!

Thanks in advance!

Dryer & bath fan can not be combined
With 2 baths its better to put an inline fan in the duct & pull air from both bathrooms
Instead of pushing air from each (2 fans)
