THE IMPORTANCE OF A PROPERLY VENTILATED ATTIC

 

Ventilation is the airflow throughout your attic space.  Soffit vents provide an inflow of cool outside air, while turbine vents are responsible for the removal of hot attic air.  Proper ventilation is having a balance between the inflow of cool air and the outflow of hot air.  When in balance, the efficiency of your attic insulation is maximized.  Our ventilation expert is trained to spot the key indicators of inadequate ventilation.   Recommendations are then formed to remedy your ventilation issues.  It is our goal to provide ventilation equilibrium.

 

TYPES OF VENTILATION

 

SOFFIT VENTS are air intake vents along the eaves of your home.  They provide an inflow of outside air throughout your attic space.

 

BAFFLES, or insulation “stops” are installed wherever daylight is seen at the soffit edge.  Baffles prevent the insulation from blocking the soffit vents.

 

STANDARD ROOF VENTS are cool air intake vents that can be installed almost anywhere on your roof.  They are designed to provide an inflow of air.

 

WIND TURBINE VENTILATORS (WHIRLYBIRDS™) are free spinning vents which can be installed almost anywhere on your roof.  They draw out the humid, hot air from your attic space.
