How to determine whether you need better attic ventilation
- Look at your eaves and roof.
- Touch your ceiling on a warm, sunny day.
- Thick ridges of ice on your eaves in winter are a sign of poor attic ventilation.
- Warm air that escapes living space also carries moisture that will condense on rafters or roof sheathing.
Additionally, how far apart should Roof vents be placed? For Flat roof Intake, install the Pop Vent on the lower portion of the roof, no less than 3 feet from the edge. All vents, Exhaust as well as Intake, are to be spaced evenly between each other and by both ends of the roof.
Also to know, where do you put roof vents?
To install a roof vent, start by installing air vents along the edges of your attic, which will allow the moisture to escape from your home. Next, find a spot on the roof for your exhaust vent, draw a square outline the same size as your vent, and remove the shingles from that area.
Should I vent my attic?
Static, roof-line, vents are effective for ventilation but generally aren't recommended due to issues with leaks. Soffit vents may leave air trapped at the top of your attic. Most effective ventilation uses a ridge-and-soffit continuous ventilation system, but even these designs can vary from roof to roof.
