Okay I actually do understand the purpose of the bathroom fan; it gets the steam out of the bathroom after a super hot shower, right? Well turns out I NEVER turn it on. I suppose I don't shower in sauna temperatures. Also we tend to shower with the door open.
Or, the point being it rids the room of odors? Thus the nickname 'fart fan'
The hose from the fan from the bathroom simply terminates in the attic space. I've been reading the threads explaining the reasons to vent it to the outdoors, but I don't want to. I have a beautiful house with new Cedar siding and I don't want to ugly it up with a big vent sitting in the middle of the gable. yuck.
So here's the question; why? Can't I simply keep from using the fan? No bother to me a little steam or stink. Do I need to put an end on the vent I don't use?
