Ventilation is the act of moving air. Out with the hot, in with the cool. However, we're not talking about creating a breeze. Instead, we're talking about ventilation that creates year-round benefits.

ShingleVent® II

ShingleVent II ridge vent installs on the peak of the roof allowing exhaust ventilation all along the roofline -- end-to-end.

This product proves that outstanding beauty and performance can be combined. Design features include an external baffle and internal weather filter for optimum airflow and weather protection. Less than an inch in height, this molded, high-impact copolymer shingle-over ridge vent permits capping of the ridge with shingles like the rest of the roof.

ShingleVent® II Class A

There's two great things about Air Vent's 7-inch and 9-inch ShingleVent II Class A shingle-over ridge vents: they're fire rated for Class A roof decks and they still have the advanced design of other Air Vent ridge vents including the external baffle and internal weather filter for superior airflow performance and weather protection.

ShingleVent II Class A ridge vent installs on the peak of the roof allowing exhaust ventilation all along the roofline -- end-to-end.

Multi-Pitch FilterVent®

Multi-Pitch FilterVent ridge vent installs on the peak of the roof allowing exhaust ventilation all along the roofline -- end-to-end.

Versatile and flexible one-piece aluminum design enables Multi-Pitch FilterVent to fit roofs with 3/12 to 12/12 pitches. This ridge vent combines advanced design with simple, secure installation to provide outstanding performance.

VenturiVent Plus™

The low-profile, shingle-over look of VenturiVent Plus creates a clean, uncluttered roofline. It installs on the peak of the roof allowing exhaust ventilation along the entire ridge -- end-to-end.

With a 12" width, matching shingles can be installed over the vent, allowing the vent to appear almost invisible from the ground.

FilterVent Specialty Vents

For special applications Air Vent makes specialty ridge vents: Flash FilterVent, Peak FilterVent, and Utility FilterVent. All FilterVent specialty style vents offer the same features as Multi-Pitch FilterVent, including an external baffle and our internal weather filter -- the keys to delivering exceptional performance.

Specialty vents provide 9 square inches of net free area per linear foot and are available in a variety of colors.

Roof-Mounted Power Attic Vent

Electric-powered attic vents use a thermostat and humidistat control to monitor heat and moisture buildup inside the attic.

Featuring a low-profile dome, the power attic vent is unobtrusive when installed on the roof slanting away from the front of your home. It's an efficient option to replace wind turbines or roof pots already in place.

Solar Powered Roof-Mounted Attic Vent

A smart alternative to conventional roof vents, the Solar Powered Attic Vent operates during the day and collects power from the sun to convert into electricity. In turn, this energy operates a high efficiency motor inside the power vent, so there's no added cost for electricity. That saves energy, which is better for the environment.

Solar Powered Gable-Mounted Attic Vent

The Solar Powered Gable-Mounted Attic Vent operates during the day and collects power from the sun to convert into electricity. There's no electrical hookup or electrical costs ever. It's easy to install and easy on your wallet! And that means environmentally friendly, budget conscious operation for year-round comfort.

Gable-Mounted Power Attic Vent

It's electric powered and uses a thermostat and humidistat control to help prevent heat and moisture buildup inside the attic.

Installed in the gable end of the house, the Gable-Mount Ventilator operates 30% more quietly than comparable units and with 35% greater efficiency. What's more, since many homes already feature a gable or vent, it may not be necessary to cut a hole to install the gable-mount ventilator.

Roof Louvers

These covered openings allow air to escape the attic. Several of these vents are usually required to properly ventilate the attic. They should be placed evenly across the roof. Choose from metal or plastic in round, square or slant-back designs.

Wall Louvers

Wall louvers are installed in the gable end of the attic. The higher they are placed, the more effective they become as exhaust vents. Wall louvers are not preferred for ventilating an attic, because they provide limited airflow under the roof deck, resulting in "hot spots."

Wind Turbines

A non-electric alternative to ventilation, these vents use the natural force of wind and air pressure to spin and vent out stale attic air. They do it with a series of specially shaped vanes that catch the wind and provide rotary motion. This pulls hot, humid air from the attic. Turbine vents provide a low-cost ventilation alternative in areas where wind speeds of at least 5 mph are typical.

Continuous Soffit Vents

For intake venting, made in plastic or aluminum, these vents install in your soffit or eave areas.

Available in aluminum or PVC, these vents are 2" by 96" long and provide 9 square inches of net free area per linear foot.

Undereave Vents

These screened aluminum vents are available in three sizes: 16" x 4" provides 28 square inches of net free area per piece; 16" x 6" provides 42 square inches of net free area per piece; and 16" x 8" provides 56 square inches of net free area per piece.

Vented Drip Edge

Air Vent's Pro Flow™ Vented Drip Edge combines venting with a drip edge and is used to provide intake ventilation on homes with little or no soffit area. The vent provides 9 square inches of net free area per linear foot.

The Edge™ Vent

Air Vent’s new The Edge™ Vent provides proper intake ventilation for homes with little or no overhang. It’s a roof-top installed, shingle-over intake vent designed based on roofing contractor feedback from our Ask the Expert™ seminars. It can be used to supplement existing soffit or undereave vents as well. The vent provides 9 square inches of net free area per linear foot.

Belt-Drive Whole-House Fans

Whole-house fans are installed in a central hallway inside the house and pull fresh outdoor air through open windows. They are often used to augment air conditioning or instead of air conditioning in mild summertime climates.

Because of an integrated pulley system, a belt-drive whole-house fan provides for smooth, quiet operation.

Direct-Drive Whole-House Fans

Whole-house fans are installed in a central hallway inside the house and pull fresh outdoor air through open windows. They are often used to augment air conditioning or instead of air conditioning in mild summertime climates.
