Adding a ridge vent to a new roof installation in Delaware can be an excellent choice for additional home cooling. After the initial installation expense, a ridge vent is a no-cost, environmentally friendly way to add additional cooling to a home.
To ensure the effectiveness of a ridge vent, it is important to confirm adequate soffit ventilation. The ridge vent and soffit work together to provide proper air flow, which allows hot air to move up and out through the ridge vent. If the home does not have adequate soffit ventilation, installing an attic fan would be a better cooling alternative to a ridge vent.
