Importance of Soffit Vents With Chutes

Soffit vents are used in many homes to allow air into the attic.  This air is controlled and shouldn’t be confused with air leakage.  Controlled air flow into the attic allows a way to remove moisture and control temperature.    The challenge is to make sure that the insulation installed in the attic does not stop airflow.  The way to combat this is to install a vent chute that allows air to flow up and over the insulation.    Service Partners carries a variety of vents and baffles that you can install for your customers to help with airflow in the attic.
