Any home or commercial property needs the right kind of ventilation for optimal air passage and temperature regulation. Yet, many homes with functioning vents do not experience the full range of benefits. Poor ventilation can lead to several issues including mould, rotting wood, and excess moisture. The right type of ventilation is also needed to keep away ice dam formations. But how do you know what vent type you need? Read on to find out about different types.
The two broad classifications of vents are –
* Intake vent – As the name suggests, intake vents suck in air to either a roof or attic.
