August 15, 2010

Jalal, one of the main reasons that builders install soffit and ridge vents in a home is to keep a continuous airflow over the ceiling(or attic) insulation, which in turn can ensure that moisture and hot air don't collect on the underside of the roof sheathing.

Does an electric wall oven require exterior venting?

January 24, 2011
