Venting Systems

Why Ventilate your Attic?

Attic ventilation is an important element of a home’s design and construction. Without effective attic ventilation, excess heat and humidity can cause serious problems with costly consequences. Summer and winter, your home will benefit from attic ventilation.

Reduces heat build-up in summer, making living areas more comfortable and reducing air conditioning usage.

Helps eliminate trapped moisture that can cause mold, mildew and wood rot.

Extends roof system life.

The Ideal Solution
A balanced ventilation system
Years of research has proven that Air Vent ridge vents, combined with under eave venting are the most efficient and effective systems you can install. This balanced system of intake and exhaust through the attics provides greater airflow than any other fixed vent. Compare ridge vents with other options and you’ll agree ridge venting is the ideal solution

vent-01Ridge Vents
Located precisely where they do the most good at the peak of the roof, ridge vents are virtually invisible from ground level, and they provide greater airflow than other vents.

 

vent-02Roof Vents
In order to provide the same ventilation, 11 convectional roof vents would be necessary, creating quite an eyesore.

 

vent-03Turbine Vents
To Ventilate the same area, five turbine vents would be necessary, resulting in an unattractive roof line.

vent-05Ridge Vent
Ridge vents are installed along the entire ridge to provide continuous air circulation across the entire underside of the roof deck. When combined with intake vents, Ridge Vent provides the most efficient and effective ventilation system available. Ridge Vent had unique shingle-over design that makes it virtually invisible.

VENTING SYSTEMS

Before the mid ’70’s and ’80’s, few people thought about establishing precise requirements for attic ventilation. Homes weren’t built. as airtight as they are today. Current minimum requirements for ventilation comes from the “2000 International Building Code (lBC), Section 1202.2. Attics can heat lip to 1650 F or more. An overheated attic means an overheated house. Overheating can cost thousands of dollars in air conditioning bills. Excess atlic heat can damage wood frames, peal exterior paint and reduce the life of the roof system. Moisture trapped in the attic can damage wood, reduce the efficiency of insulation (R value), ca use mold and mildew and moisten insulation. Ridge vents stabilize the attic temperature, relieves moisture, preserves insulation, wood a nd paint while reducing your air conditioning bills. You will also be able to efficiently cool the same house with a smaller air conditioning unit.
