In this regard, should soffits have vents?
Soffit vents can be used for intake, but they are not the only means of intake. If you have a vented roof and already have adequate intake venting, you don't need to add more. Additionally, not all roofs need to be vented - there are "hot roof" designs where the rafter bays are insulated and sealed up.
Also Know, will soffit vents stop condensation? There are various eaves vents that can be installed to help reduce condensation in the eaves section of the roof. Soffit vents and fascia strips can both be installed to both new and existing roof-line boards. These can be used in conjunction with other types of ventilation or as a stand alone product.
Additionally, what is a continuous soffit vent?
Soffit vents, also referred to as eave vents, are used to allow fresh air into the attic of a building or home. The metal soffit vents can be used with continuous ridge vents, or any other roof vents to assure proper attic ventilation.
How far apart should soffit vents be placed?
The soffit vents should be evenly spaced on both sides of the roof, just under the edge. They must be kept free of obstructions, and roof insulation shouldn't be any closer than 3 inches.
