Exhaust vents play a valuable role in keeping your attic the right temperature. By letting air flow out of the roof, it allows proper circulation that keeps attics cooler in the summer and winter. This reduces the risk for an overloaded HVAC or ice dams forming in the winter.
Ridge vents are just one of the several types of exhaust vents you can install on your roof to achieve better form and function. At Noble Roofing, we stand by the CertainTeed brand for many of our roofing solutions, including ventilation. Here’s a spotlit on CertainTeed’s RidgeVent, which offers both outstanding function and curb appeal.
CertianTeed Ridgevents are designed to be installed on top of the roof where the two sides meet. Since heat rises, the hottest air naturally rises to the top of the attic and through the ceiling. When you combine this exhaust vent with enough intake vents, then you have an efficient ventilation system. All ventilation systems needs a good balance between intake and exhaust, so ask your roofing specialist about what works best for your home.
CertainTeed’s RidgeVent is made with a subtle, slim-profile that doesn’t interfere with the roof’s overall design. It an be installed with a new roof and customized with the shingles you choose. Even though the vent opening is deftly concealed, it’s equipped with external baffles that maximize airflow across the roof sheathing’s underside. Here are some other benefits of this ventilation:
- There is no electric power or anything necessary to keep this vent working — it functions on the basic science of heat rising, which makes it a low-maintenance ventilation solution.
- This product rises to less than one inch in height to allow just enough of a gap for efficient air flow.
- It’s made from high-impact copolymer that is designed to resist impacts and tough weather.
Need Intake Vents?
If you need to install a full ventilation system, then you should also complete the job with CertainTeed intake vent solutions like vinyl soffits. These vents allow air to come inside the attic through under the eaves to keep the air flowing. It helps your air conditioner not work as hard to cool down the rest of the house and therefore saves you on energy costs.
Need more support? The CertainTeed Intake Vent allows constant intake airflow for homes that need more air flow. It’s also an option for homes with little to no overhang, which can’t get soffits. We can install this on top of the roof to give your roofing system the support it needs to function well.
