So my wife called my attention the fact that the kids bathroom has some grunge on the ceiling and tends to have lots of water drops when in use.
First issue - at some point the vent motor was replaced with one that is too small for the housing, they had some foil tape on there to try to seal it...
Today, I got up into the attic and it turns out that the fan isn't vented anywhere...it's just buried under the insulation.
Surprisingly, I didn't see any mold/mildew in the insulation...perhaps because we live in Salt Lake City, Utah...things don't stay wet around here.
Long term, I'll see about finding somebody to put in some actual venting through the roof. Although, the one bath will be tough, as the fan is close to the wall.
I'd prefer to go out the wall, but there's no exterior wall above the bathroom ceiling...just the soffit.
As an alternative to the roof, I could go out the gable end, but that's 20ft or so..
So my question, what should I do today? Should I just put every back? Or is there anything I can do today that would help and not hurt?
