HOUSTON ATTIC VENTS INSTALLATION
Solar Vents are our most in-demand attic ventilation product. Solar fans are very helpful in drawing hot air out of the attic in the summer months and moisture out of the attic in winter months. Solar vents are so popular here in Texas because they run on sunlight, unlike the power vents which run on electricity and increase your energy bill. It keeps the attic cool in the summer and dry in the winter. Proper ventilation enhances the performance of your insulation, extends the life of your HVAC unit and saves you, even more, money on energy bills. Many people think that if the attic is sealed tightly from outside air, this would create the most energy-efficient attic, however, exactly the opposite is true. In order to meet building codes, and to ensure that you have an Energy Saving Attic® — proper airing is essential.
Our team uses soffit vents and ridge vents to pull air through the attic. This creates natural convection pulling air out of the attic via the ridge vents and solar fans, which in turn brings in fresh air from the outside through the soffits. This continuous movement of air requires no moving parts or energy.
- During the hot summer months, proper airing prevents heat build-up in the attic, thus reducing the stress on air conditioners.
- During the winter months, it’s important to remove the warm, moist air generated by laundry shoots, showers and cooking vents, etc… And recycle the air.
If this system is not working or is not properly installed, it can cause the air to stop, potentially trapping poor quality air in the attic and causing extensive damage to the roof and insulation over time.
Proper attic ventilation in Houston contributes to the performance of attic insulation, radiant barrier spray, and radiant barrier foil. The results are added comfort in all seasons, reduced energy consumption throughout the year, and the prevention of damage to your home.

Benefits of solar powered vents:
By installing a solar ventilation fan you are reducing your energy usage, cooling your home and saving money!
Although the most popular choice for most of our customers is Solar Vents, we do offer power vents as well.
Power vents are attic fans that are installed on the roof to help draw hot air out of the attic and further cool your house on hot days. Power vents have built in thermostats that automatically turn the fan on when the temperature gets too hot.
Soffits are installed under the eaves of the house and let cool air into the attic. The force of air into the attic allows the hot air in the attic to be drawn out by attic vents (i.e. power vents, solar vents, attic fans ridge vents,) therefore you have consistent air circulation in the attic.
