"My range hood is vented to the soffit on my roof eave, is this acceptable?" --------- Possibly....
Needs to terminate outside, 3' minimum away
from any openings into house (doors, windows, air supply, etc.) and property line. Requires a backdraft damper
, very hard to do in a soffit application.
A good idea? NO- the soffit intake vents will bring the greasy/moist air into the attic to settle on the insulation. Check with your LOCAL B.D.
Be safe, Gary
Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
