Home Ventilation Contractors Serving Haltom City, TX and the Surrounding Areas
Why should you ventilate your home?
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; the light should be visible in the soffit area.
Mixing Exhaust Products – Do not mix different exhaust products in a single attic, meaning 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. 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.
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.
