How Does Roof Ventilation Work?

In the summertime, a properly ventilated roof allows hot air in the attic to escape, reducing the demand on your air conditioning system. In the winter, ventilation and good attic insulation keep the roof surface cold to prevent snow from melting on the roof because it can refreeze to form ice dams along the eaves.

Types of Roof Vents

There are different types of roof vents and different strategies for achieving effective roof ventilation:

Ridge Vents

Ridge vents are exhaust vents that are installed along the roof peak. They’re a passive roof ventilation system, meaning they’re not powered by electricity.

Hot air that accumulates inside the attic rises by convection. The warmest air in the attic rises naturally to the roof peak and escapes outside through the ridge vents.

Ridge vents aren’t always easy to see because the openings for a ridge vent are the continuous space on either side of the ridge cap. On an asphalt shingle roof, they’re usually covered by a layer of shingles.

Soffit Vents

As ridge vents release warm inside air, fresh outside air is simultaneously drawn into the attic through soffit vents.

Soffit vents are passive intake vents that run parallel to the eaves along the soffit. They work with ridge and gable vents to promote good roof ventilation.

Soffit vents are installed along the eaves of the roof and are usually in the form of grilles that run the length of each soffit. Soffit vents may run continuously under eaves. Rectangular or circular vents may be installed in soffits where a continuous strip-type vent was omitted.

Gable Vents

Gable vents are installed near the peak of a gable end. If attic airflow is insufficient, your roofer may recommend a gable vent in addition to ridge and soffit vents. Depending on the breeze and temperature conditions, they can function as exhaust vents that allow hot air to leave the attic or intake vents that allow fresh air to enter, depending on prevailing breezes and temperature conditions.
