Keeping your house in Phoenix cool without spending a fortune is the #1 concern of most homeowners.
What is venting.. REALLY? Natural ventilation is the process of supplying and removing air through an indoor space by natural means. There are two principles of natural ventilation, first, as air is heated it becomes less dense and rises and second wind moves over and around a structure which creates areas of high and low pressure. If a space has high air outlets in conjunction with low inlets, ventilation occurs as the air within the space is heated. The greater the vertical distance between the outlet and inlet, the greater the ventilation rate will be. Thus, roof outlets should be at or very near the ridge, and inlets should be under the roof overhang or near the ceiling line. A knowledgeable Phoenix roofing contractor can make the correct calcualtions.
