Universal Dormer roof exhaust vent, and as a soffit/eave intake vent
Universal Dormer Vent exhaust and roof top intake
Hot air rises. By working with this fundamental physical principle, there are several ways to ensure that your roof is well ventilated all year round. In the summer, attic ventilation will keep the attic space cooler, which will save energy and cool off the whole house. In the winter, moisture will rise into the attic with warm and moist air from the building, and condense when that air is cooled through contact with the cold air in the unheated attic. This moisture if not vented will linger, collect into water which can rot wood, insulation, or other building materials it comes in contact with. In any season, venting requires an intake of air from as low as is practical in the attic space, so that as exhaust roof vent high in the attic space will have a flow of air to allow warmer moist air to escape easily and quickly, before it has an opportunity to condense.
Active Ventilation Products’ off ridge vent product line, the Universal Vent, is a multi-purposed vent that can be used as an air exhaust or intake vent when installed on a sloped roof. This off ridge roof vent or dormer vent has a low profile design that looks pleasing on shingled roofs and parapet walls. Its hooded vent design and horizontal louvers will keep out rain and snow. The 1/8 in. opening between the horizontal louvers blades will keep out insects, birds, and animals. When used as an exhaust vent, it is engineered to allow heat and moisture to escape. When placed on the roof but at the low end of a pitched roof, it can be used as an air intake vent like a soffit vent. This off ridge roof vent is also excellent for parapet walls. It will allow the heat and moisture that can build up within the parapet wall to escape preserving the longevity of the building structure. Made of rust free aluminum, the Universal Vent is durable and can withstand harsh weather. The Universal Vent is an excellent choice to serve your ventilation needs.
