Attic Ventilation: Venting Hot Air

Posted by Admin on February, 13, 2012

Whether it is to wear off the hot air, lessening the load on the air conditioner or reducing the electricity bills, one straight answer is Attic Ventilation. Attic Ventilation or simply the ventilation can be done easily with fans and roof vents. The ventilators come in various sizes as well as kinds. Some of the widely installed ventilators are Industrial Air Ventilators, Eco Air Ventilator, Energy Saving Air Ventilator, FRP Based Turbo Air Ventilator, Powerless Air Ventilator, Rooftop Air Ventilator, Turbine Air Ventilator, Turbo Air Ventilator, Wind Driven Turbo Ventilator, etc. Though all these ventilators serve the same propose, they differ in their make and somewhere in the application too. Let’s know more about them!

The Venting Of Air And The Air Flow Components:
The air flow components are required to expel hot air in the atmosphere by balancing two components – air exhaust component and air inflow component. These components help in reducing heat which positively results in low-energy consumption and thus, diminishing the hefty summer electricity bills. In addition to this, it results in less moisture build-up as well as less humidity reducing the chances of toxic mold and mildew. Let’s now talk about the functioning of these air flow components in detail!

Air Inflow Components: Soffit Vents
Soffit vents, the rectangular rigid-louver vents, are used to provide an entry point for external air into the roof space. The soffit vents are quite easy to install. These vents come with a fiberglass screen and are connected between the horizontal rafters of homes. For the best flow of air, they should be placed uniformly between each pair of rafters. While installing these kinds of vents one must keep in mind that the opening isn't obstructed by attic insulation.

The Air Exhaust Components Mainly Comprise Of:
Turbine Vents

The Turbine Air Ventilators, also called whirlybird fans, are a traditional way to drive out hot air from the attic. They function in a simple spinning manner and are very easy to install. The metal body of Turbine Air Ventilator makes it strong and durable for a long term service.

Power Roof Ventilator
Power Roof Vent is somewhat similar to the Turbine Air Ventilator. But like the Turbine Vents, the Power Roof Ventilators don’t depend on the inconsistent wind to power it. This type of ventilator is motorized by electrical circuits.

The ventilators are available according to the needs of varied ventilation requirements. Make sure that whichever ventilator you invest into should fulfill the respective application.
