Air in your attic can reach 150°F during the summer, warming your home, increasing the load on your air conditioner, and adding to your energy bill. In winter, ice dams can result from poor ventilation, and moist air in the home can condense on attic surfaces causing mildew, rotting wood and wet insulation. BROAN has the solution!
It’s quite simple. You may use some rooms only briefly, such as the bathroom, as you get ready for work in the morning. Heating the entire home for this purpose is pointless. Instead, opt for spot heating, which will effectively heat the area you need – when you need it.
Replacement air is drawn through vents in your soffit. To determine the minimum soffit vent area required (in square inches) multiply the total CFM of your powered ventilator(s) by 0.48. This number is the total square inches of soffit venting required by your powered ventilator(s).
Example: 1,029 CFM x 0.48 = 494 Square Inches of soffit vent area recommended.
If you have eve vents or gable vents multiply the length by width of each one. This will give you the square inches (if the opening is covered with screen divide by 2). The net free area may be stamped in the frame on the vent. Add up all the totals from all of the vents to get your total existing free air area.
We recommend adding additional free air area to insure that your Attic Ventilator works at optimal efficiency.
This varies depending on the climate of your home and the sun exposure of your roof. A starting point to determine an on/off temperature is to measure the summertime temperature of the attic in the evening, when there is no sun. Use this temperature as a baseline; when the temperature gets warmer, the ventilator should operate.
