The Under Eave Soffit Vent is an air intake roof vent. To clarify, Soffit Vents are roof vents installed underneath the eaves of a roof that extend past the warm wall line. When properly combined with other roof ventilation devices, soffit vents allow fresh air to enter into an attic to create proper air flow. This model is the SV-W10-L10 which is 10 inches long with 40 inches of Net Free Area (NFA).
Soffit vents are essential for completing proper attic ventilation. At first, it may seem odd to add insulation for warmth then purposely allow cold air to enter the attic through soffit vents. On the contrary, attic ventilation is the key to a durable and energy-efficient home. Allowing a natural flow of outdoor air to ventilate the attic helps the attic properly ventilated. As a result, this prevents mold from growing and keeps the insulation dry. In addition to intake air, you will also need to exhaust out the stale air from the attic. See our Exhaust Vents to complete your attic ventilation.
This attic vent is ideal for obtaining proper attic ventilation. Under eave vents allow fresh outside air into the attic or plenum. The 1/8 inch opening between the horizontal louvers blades will keep out precipitation and wildlife while allowing air to move freely. In addition to its functionality, the horizontal louvers will keep out rain and snow. We also offer powder coating in order for your vents to match the color of your roof.
There are numerous benefits to having soffit vents installed on your home.
