Bathroom fan soffit vent

Bonusroom1 | Posted in General Questions on

Hello im in north Carolina climate zone 7b my bathroom fans are unfortunately vented out soffits, and I have vented soffits and ridge vent. Would it help to extend soffit vents further down so they would stick down out of soffit.
