Box Vents

October 19, 2022

Although there are plenty of different ways to keep your home airy and fresh, if you want to keep your home ventilated, you need to install a proper ventilation system in your attic. 

What are Box Vents?

As the name implies, they are square-shaped exhaust vents that pull out the hot air from your house, making it cooler. They provide an opening in the attic for the release of hot air and moisture from your house. They are static as they don’t have any moving parts, thus relying on the natural airflow to keep your interior cool.

But why are they so important?

We often overlook the importance of a proper ventilation system when building a house. Our everyday chores build up hot air and moisture inside our home that need to be let out; otherwise, it can cause mold buildup, peeling paint, and put an extra burden on the air conditioning resulting in increased energy bills. 

A box vent is the solution to all these issues! It helps release the hot and humid air from the house and makes way for cool and fresh air. This improves the air quality inside your home and minimizes mold and bacteria build-up, promoting a healthy lifestyle. 

Plastic or Metal?

They come in plastic and metal, and many people find it difficult to decide which one to go for. Although plastic is cheaper and doesn’t dent easily, they are not as durable and long-lasting as metal. Our team will often see plastic box vents that are cracked and broken on roofs we work on. That’s why we always suggest going for metal box vents if you want to save costs in the long run.

What to Know About Box Vents

Box vents are quite common for a number of reasons:

  • They are affordable.
  • They are easy to install.
  • They get the job done!
  • They can be installed anywhere on the roof, making them an excellent option for homes with complicated roof structures. 

However, we always want our customers to know what to expect. Because box vents are non-mechanical (static), they don’t have any moving parts. As a result. here are some things to consider:

  • They are reliant on natural airflow.
  • Their effectiveness reduces significantly.
  • You need to install numerous box vents for adequate airflow.
