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.

VenturiVent

 

 

The low-profile, shingle-over look of VenturiVent Plus creates a clean, uncluttered roofline; and the vent performs better than other types of exhaust vents which are a lot more noticeable on the roof.

Features

Product Features

  • Exceptional airflow. An external baffle creates low pressure over the vent openings to "pull" air from the attic. VenturiVent Plus provides 18 square inches of net free area per linear foot.

  • Advanced weather protection. The external baffle deflects wind and weather over the vent to help protect the attic from rain and snow infiltration.

  • Easy Installation. VenturiVent Plus has pre-printed slot guides for truss or ridge pole construction. Pre-drilled nailing holes are designed to assure proper nailing. The vent is pre-formed to a 4/12 pitch, and fits pitches from 3/12 to 16/12.

  • Limited Lifetime Warranty and 5-year Replacement Plus™ Protection. Provides peace of mind for the homeowner and installer.

  • Available with and without nails. VenturiVent Plus with nails has 30 3-inch ring shank, galvanized roofing nails bagged and taped to each 4-foot piece inside the carton. Installers will not have to hassle with removing nails that are snapped along the side of the vent prior to fastening.

THE SIMPLE MATHEMATICS OF A BALANCED RIDGE VENTILATION SYSTEM

 

  • According to most building codes, you need 1 square foot of ventilation for every 150 square feet of attic floor space.
  • For new home construction that includes a vapor retarder, the minimum is 1 square foot of ventilation for every 300 square feet of attic floor space.
  • If your vents are split between ridge vents and intake vents, the minimum requirement is also 1 square foot of ventilation for every 300 square feet of attic floor space.

 

To determine how many feet of net free area you need, use this formula:

Square feet of attic floor space

300
= Square feet of net free area needed
For example:    
1500 square feet of attic floor space

300
= 5 square feet of free are a needed

 

To determine how many feet of ShingleVent® II, Multi-Pitch FilterVent® or VenturiVent Plus™ you need, use this formula:
1/2 net free area x 144 ÷ 18 = feet of ridge vent needed
For example: 2.5 (based on net free area of 5 square feet) x 144 ÷ 18 = 20 feet of ridge vent needed
To determine how many feet of Air Vent soffit vents you need, use this formula:
1/2 net free area x 144 ÷ 9 = feet of soffit vent needed
For example: 2.5 (based on net free area of 5 square feet) x 144 ÷ 9 = 40 feet of soffit vent needed
The following charts may be used to:
1. Determine how much net free area is needed to satisfy FHA requirements.
2. Balance your ridge vent system.

INSTALLING A BALANCED RIDGE VENT SYSTEM

 

  • Measure the square footage of the attic (length x width).
  • Measure the length of the ridge.
  • Refer to the chart above for required net free area and minimum length of ridge for attic square footage.
  • Note: In most cases, the length of the ridge balanced with the same net free area of intake vents will satisfy FHA minimum standards and most building codes.
  • Use the chart below to calculate the amount of intake vents that should be installed to balance your ridge vent system.
  • Always install ridge vents from end to end across the entire ridge for best appearance and to provide maximum ventilation area.
  • Hip roofs, dormers and T- or L-shaped roofs may require a specially designed ventilation system. For information, request a copy of Air Vent's Principles of Attic Ventilation.See Contact Us.
