We recommend vents along the eaves and rooftop of your home to create a continual flow of cool dry air for protection of your home. These vents are standard on most new homes, but are often too few and a necessary assessment will conclude how many are needed. To allow cool, dry air to enter the attic at the lowest point, intake vents or soffit vents are installed along the eaves of the house. The air is then pulled out at the highest point of the roof by exhaust vents. Wind turbines function by using the natural force of the slightest wind and/or air pressure from inside the attic to spin the air turbine, thus creating a chimney effect venting out the stale, hot, humid air. A low-cost, effective option are turbine vents. Turbine vents very effective in removing heat from an attic. Solar fans and electric fans are also extremely effective.
