A ridge vent is a type of vent installed at the peak of a sloped roof which allows warm, humid air to escape a building's attic. Ridge vents are most common on shingled residential buildings.
How Ridge Vent Works?
Ridge Vent works on the basis of several principles. Adequate soffit ventilation coupled
with ridge ventilation produces a pathway for a continuous airflow along the entire
underside of the roof deck. Airflow is maintained two ways. First, hot air naturally rises
and exits out the ridge vent, pulling in cool air from below. Second, positive airflow
across the ridge of the house creates a "venturi effect", or a negative pressure, which
pulls air out of the ridge vent and brings in cool air from the soffits below. In calm or
windy weather, the entire attic is vented by a constant flow of cooler, dryer outside air.
Installing Ridge Vent At The
When building or remodelling a house, it's common practice to provide some ventilation in the attic. Attic venting reduces the amount of heat that enters the house during hot weather, and keeps the roof shingles cooler which prolongs their life.
Older homes often have nothing more than a louvered vent near the top of each gable wall. In the last 3 or 4 decades there has been increased attention to providing the right amount of venting that will function even when the wind isn't blowing. This often means using perforated soffit material at the eaves and some type of ridge vent at the peak of the roof, plus careful construction methods to ensure at least an inch of clear space below the roof sheathing to allow for air flow.
This method works. Even with no wind, the hot air inside the attic will rise up and escape from the ridge vent, and cooler air will be drawn into the soffit vents. There are many roof ridge venting products available today. This article shows how one typical product is installed.
