venting fan

thank you for the info the hole in the ceiling is connected to a 4 inch vent pipe that is round and vents right on top of the roof beside the chimney this should be ok right i sure you have come across them in older houses the hole is shape like a cone also we do not use a blow dryer in the bathroom the only thing the gfi plugs for is for a night light and for a vaccume thanks tony
