Optimizing Attic Inlet Performance

Winter ventilation comes with a unique set of challenges. Incoming air is cold and dry, heaters seem like they are always running, and the cost of fuel is only going up.

Attic inlets are sometimes used to minimize the use of heaters. The idea is that the sun would warm the attic air, which would then be pulled into the bird area and used as a heat source in lieu of gas or propane. The theory can work, but careful management must be taken to ensure some of these common problems don’t arise:

To get the best performance from the use of attic inlets, consider the following:
