In the condo (2 story semi-detached townhouse built in 2004) I rent, the main bathroom has an interesting vent system.
When turned on, 2 fans are activated. One is a booster of some type and increases the air flow from the floor HVAC register. The second one acts as exhaust, pulling air out through a similar register mounted up on the wall. This second register is connected to a rectangular sheet metal duct that goes straight down from the register and appears to actually be an air return.
Is this sort of arrangement actually allowed by code (specifically, NBC Canada 1995 would have been current when the place was built.)? What are the potential problems (mold?) with such an arrangement beyond code compliance?
