Pitch Roof Ventilation occurs by creating air changes in the attic. Ventilation is crucial to attics because it affects the overall health of the home. Proper ventilation will remove excess heat during the summer and moisture during the winter. As a result, extending the life of the roof and the efficiency of the HVAC systems. In addition, having a balance of exhaust and intake air will keep insulation dry. Having proper roof ventilation is beneficial in all climate zones.
Proper Roof Ventilation is when you have equal amounts of air exhaust with air intake. Exhaust vents should be on the upper portion of the roof, meaning no lower than 2 feet from the peak. Air intake must be on the lower end of the roof. For exhaust vents, we recommend the Aura Gravity Vents as they come in an array of sizes. For intake air, we have Pop Vents and Soffit Vents to balance your attic ventilation.
