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.
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.

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.
