Mechanical Ventilation Hoods and Shutters


Recommended Posts

Here's another first - The photos below are of the vent hoods for the half bathroom and microwave exhaust fan, both of which vent through the soffit. Obviously, these flapper style vent covers aren't going to function as intended when installed at the underside of a soffit.

I'm really not crazy about the kitchen exhaust fan venting this way because it's difficult to confirm that the junctions are airtight. In fact it's doubtful that they are.

While I toy with the wording of the deficiency, I am wondering if anyone is aware of a similar self-closing vent cover that is well suited for this location? I suppose one could always turn them out ninety degrees and keep the current vents, but is would be ugly. Any thoughts?
