Ventilation

The Importance of Proper Ventilation

Ventilation is the process of supplying a continuous supply of air through the attic space. "Proper ventilation " consists of 50% intake, under the eaves, and 50% exhaust near or at the roof peak.

WHY SHOULD YOU VENTILATE?

To fight heat and moisture, you must ventilate year round. Heat in unventilated attics may cause temperatures to exceed 150 degrees causing damage to shingles , roof sheathing and possibly radiate to the living area. Moisture being the #1 enemy, causes rot, mildew, mold, paint blisters, and renders insulation to be ineffective.

Proper ventilation reduces energy bills, winter ice build up and eliminates mold/mildew which can lead to major health problems. By ventilating, you are extending the life of other building components, shingles , insulation, etc.

Ventilation Tips

Lack of Under Eave Soffit Ventilation.

This is the #1 reason for weather infiltration. There should be an equal or slightly greater amount of free area in the soffit regardless of the type of exhaust system used. Make sure that the soffit vents are not covered by insulation, light should be visible in the soffit area.

Mixing Exhaust Products

Do not mix different exhaust products on a single attic, i.e., do not use roof vents with ridge vents, ridge vents with power vents, turbines with roof vents, etc… Avoid using ridge vents or roof vents near gable vents. Depending on wind direction, the gable vents can act as exhaust vents and cause the ridge or roof vents to act as intake vents. If problems occur, make the gable vents non-functional.

Roof Vent Location

Keep roof vents on the same side of the ridge. Do not place them across the ridge from one another. Depending on the wind conditions, one roof vent may try to feed from the other roof vent.
 
Do not use ridge vents on rakes or hips of hip roof designs. Ridge vents are designed to be exhaust vents. When installed on the rakes, the exhaust / intake systems are indefinable.
