Can I vent my bathroom to an interior part of the house?

Code Change Requires Venting Outside

If you're doing a remodel, you probably figured it's no smart move to vent your bathroom fan into the attic or any other interior part of your home. Venting your bathroom fan is not only a bad idea, it's something you can't do anymore due to a building code change. This recent code change requires you to route exhaust from your bathroom outside of the house only. Venting outside will save damage to your home in the long run. You'll prevent moisture from accumulating in your attics, crawlspaces, soffit vents, and ridge vents.
