ATTIC INTAKE VENTS ARE IMPORTANT
Attic intake vents are an important component of proper attic air circulation. Your attic configuration is key to maximizing your home’s overall energy efficiency. A properly configured attic has the following:
1) Attic intake vents at the eave or soffit of the roofline that allows external air to enter the attic space, while shielded from precipitation.
2) Exhaust vents higher in the roof allow air to flow out from your attic space.
3) Circulation of air is necessary to create an attic space that is closely matched to external temperatures. In the Midwest, where it rains, snows, and can get very humid, circulation is often assured by installing a powered attic fan.
