A Quick Look At Rafter Vents

A Quick Look At Rafter Vents

Attic vents facilitate air movement through attics—that is, fresh air enters the space as stale air exits. If air is allowed to stagnate in your attic, moisture in that air can create an ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow. That is why it is extremely important to install rafter vents, which permit air to move freely between your attic’s rafters. If you are planning an attic insulation project, you will also have to install baffles. Baffles are specialized plates that help to channel air from along your home’s soffit and in your gable, and they protect rafter vents from becoming clogged with insulation.
