    Default bathroom exhaust fan vent

    i have installed a bathroom exhaust fan which will vent through a side outside wall.is there another way to connect the vent pipe to the outside other than a clothes dryer vent connector, the type with the three flaps,or is this the only way. i will be using 4" galvanized vent pipe....thanks

    They have venting kits just for this and you should be aware that you could get discoloration on your siding, the roof would be a better choice. Follow the links for more Info

    I disagree with roof venting being the better option --- it lends itself to other issues -- besides if you get discoloration on the siding you will also get it on the roof.

    I'm not sure what the concern is with the exterior hood --- if it has to do with not using the louver type there are typical sloped hoods available. Whichever type you choose make sure it as a backdraft damper to prevent outside air getting into the ducting.
