It's that time of year again. You're sitting in the bathroom, reading your favorite magazine, happily "taking care of business," when all of a sudden you feel an icy drop of water hit the back of your neck.
In northern climates, when it gets cold outside, your bathroom exhaust fan can start dripping water inside your bathroom. While this doesn't indicate that your roof is leaking, it does potentially indicate that your exhaust fan isn't vented correctly.
If your bath exhaust fan vents into your attic and not through your roof, it could be building up condensation which then follows the vent pipe back down into your bathroom ceiling.
The solution for this is to install an insulated duct pipe and extend it to the roof deck and exhaust it out of the roof.
In this video, I'll show you another example of an improperly vented bathroom exhaust fan and explain how it needs to be corrected.
