Published by Andrew Schmidt

Exhaust Vents

Most homes have at least one type of exhaust fan that exits into the attic. The most popular is the bathroom fan, but others include kitchen exhaust and dryer vents. If the fan exit through the attic it is important that it also is vented to the outside of the roof. If not this hot moist air will cause severe condensation in the attic and even mold growth. Here are some examples of what a fan looks like in the attic unvented and then vented to the outside:
