How to find where bathroom fan vents out to?
Recently we were all re-doing our roof shingles and I was paying close attention to what the roofers were doing.
I noticed that on my roof, there are a number of turtle vents, and one cylindrical pipe sticking out.
From what I understand the cylindrical pipe is a sewer exhaust vent, so thats fine.
The turtle vents are vents for my attic to exhaust out air, thats fine too.
But then I realized, I wasnt sure where my bathroom fan vents out to?
I looked over my roof (from the ground) and based on what the roofers had I just saw them have turtle vents and the cylindrical pipe vent cover.
I didnt see any other style of vents. I looked on the side of my town house and I dont see any vents coming out from the second floor either. I have a few vents lower in the house, which I know is for my dryer etc.
I am a bit concerned that my bathroom vents may be venting some how to my attic? Or possibly even to no where?
When it rains though, I do distinctly hear rain drops echoing out from my bathroom fans, so it SOUNDS like they are vented out some where external.
Its weird though, as I dont believe they are vented through the roof, I dont see anything on the side of the building so am a bit confused as to where the bathroom fans vent out to?
I took a look around my attic before as well, and I do see some black pipes running through out where the second floor bathroom fans are generally located.
I didnt see any weird condensation, mold, or pipes that didnt end in my attic. I also had someone install insulation and had a home inspector come in as well, and they never noted anything odd to me within my attic.
Just curious if anyone had any idea?
Could they be vented out through a soffit or something?
