Attic Intake Vents
As the hot air leaves or diminishes, cool air moves in to replace it, creating a balance. That's ideal ventilation.
A Balancing Act
Intake ventilation is an essential component of a properly designed ridge vent system. To maximize ridge vent performance, air intake vent area should be equal to or exceed the net free area installed at the ridge. Air Vent offers a variety of intake vents to fill this need.
Balancing the Ridge Vent System
Intake vents provide the other half of the balanced air movement equation. To find the required length of ridge vents and intake venting, see Ventilation Requirements and Balancing your Ridge Vent System under Specifications.
