Bathroom venting near gable vent?
Our bathroom has a ventilation fan, but it vents into the attic, so I want to run a vent out through the side of the house. The gable end of the attic is less than 3 feet away.
If I head straight out, I will come out less than a foot below the gable vent.
My question is:
Should I be concerned about the wet air working its way back into the attic through the gable vent, or will this be OK?
The alternative would be to mount a vent fan in a bathroom wall, and run the ducting through an adjacent closet. This would make the outlet several feet away from the gable vent.
Hope all this makes sense.
