Our 15 Point Ventilation Audit

Our ventilation audit has you covered. A 15 point thorough check list that covers all the specific ventilation must-haves.

  • Match the roof design to the best attic-ventilation option possible.
  • How many attics are there? Are they common to each other or separate?
  • Identify physical obstructions (firewalls, knee walls, etc.) that would impact airflow, and make appropriate recommendations.
  • Check that the amount of intake and exhaust ventilation (including spacing and positioning of the vents) has been correctly sized based on the attic square footage.
  • Check the attic temperature compared to the outdoor ambient temperature. If the attic ventilation system is working properly, the attic temperature should be no more than 15- 20 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the temperature outdoors.
  • Is anything obstructing the intake vents such as insulation, debris or paint?
  • Is the exhaust vent operating properly (examples: power fan motor, spinning wind turbines, etc.)?
  • Are attic-insulation baffles being used to help keep the intake vents clear and free?
  • Is the system being short-circuited due to a mixture of two or more different types of exhaust vents?
  • Is the attic insulation the correct R-value for the geographic location? Has the insulation become compacted and thus lost some of its R-value?
  • Are the bathroom fans correctly vented to the outdoors through the roof or sidewall (not ducted to terminate inside the attic or near soffit/intake vents)?
  • Are there signs of rust or discoloration on the nails that penetrate the underside of the roof deck?
  • Is the roof deck warped? What does the underside of the deck look like? Are there any signs of delamination?
  • During winter months, look for signs of frost or snow including the framing members, underside of the deck and attic insulation.
  • Are there any signs of mold or mildew inside the attic? What does the attic smell like? What does it feel like

DID YOU KNOW?


Proper attic ventilation helps remove moisture in your home

The Average family produces 2 to 4 gallons of water vapor a day through activities such as cooking, cleaning, showering, laundry and breathing.  Some of this water vapor rises into your attic.  Proper attic ventilation helps remove it before it causes problems such as wood rot, wet insulation, mold and mildew.
