    If you knew what you were doing, and there’s a closet ceiling light with an opening to the attic, you could temporarily remove the light assembly (might as well use that circuit for your power,) and exhaust through your attics vents. Might be able to suck enough air in from under the door it there’s a large gap…add a separate intake fan if necessary. If you just leave the closet door open, you can’t just leave an open window in the room, lot of moisture and heat to move, plan on a window fan at least…Peace, John

    If you would like to experiment snaking through the house for a more direct connection to the outside, vinyl vent duct is cheap and readily available at home improvement stores: http://www.amazon.com/Lambro-219L-4-Inch-50-Foot-Flexible/dp/B000KKKJHE/ref=pd_cp_hi_1 Use the high temp dryer vent version for up near the lamp…Peace, John
