Attic Ventilation

Pull the heat out of your attic.

Put money back in your wallet.
In summer, attics can reach 150°F or more, warming your living area, increasing the air-conditioning load, and adding to your energy bill. In winter, ice dams can result, and moist air can condense causing mildew, rotting wood and wet insulation. Year-round attic ventilation ensures a cooler, drier attic that can extend roof life by preventing rot, premature aging and shingle distortion. A cooler attic extends the life of your air conditioner and lowers air conditioning expense.

How Much Ventilation Do You Need?

Effective ventilation requires air to exit at or near the peak of the roof with replacement air drawn through soffit venting and louvers. The Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) recommends at least 10 air changes hourly to equalize temperature. Determine your attic ventilation needs with our online calculator.
