Bathroom vent through an unvented soffit
I lost the battle. I have been arguing with my husband for months on this. New construction, Climate Zone 5. Bathroom Vents. I thought I had him talked in to exiting out the gable wall. Roof was not an option, as neither of us want to put any holes through the roof, few as possible.
He is planning on exiting the bathroom vents to the soffit. His plan is to use unvented soffits for a certain amount of sq ft, to avoid re-entry into the attic.
I am going to make sure he insulates the ductwork. I have read other posts on the duct tape/duct insulation, and want to make sure he is doing that.
I believe he purchased hard metal ducts, not flex duct, which is a plus.
What other things can we do to help this situation? Is there anything we can do to make sure the moist air being existed doesn’t “hang out” under the eave?
