Fundamental Necessity Of The Soffit Vent
How the Soffit Vent Works
The Soffit Vent by Moisture Flow ® is the termination of bathroom exhaust fan ductwork, using the soffit as the passageway to the exterior required by the International building Code and the International Residential Code.
The Moisture Flow Soffit Vent delivers the moist air extracted from the bathroom exhaust fan, outside the passive airflow of the soffit, which is used for the intake of the cool air supply of the attic’s circulation.
This illustration explains Tom Silva’s video of the dangers of using improper vents in the soffit. The only soffit vent that solves the problem is the Soffit Vent by Moisture Flow ®. This Soffit Vent is new the Gold Standard of venting a bathroom fan to the exterior using the soffit as the termination of the exhaust fan’s ductwork. The Soffit Vent releases the extracted moist air outside of the soffit’s passive airflow and not into the soffit allowing it to be drawn back into the attic.
Because as a result, of improper venting, the moist air is causing mold, moisture damage in the attic and more importantly contamination to one of four occupants. The effects of these improper venting systems are costing homeowners billions of dollars annually in the USA.
In October of 2018 the Soffit Vent was tested by ReVireo, an industry recognized firm for energy efficiency and green building services. Their analysis and verification services found that ridge vents combined with the Soffit Vent by Moisture Flow ® installed in undereave venting known as the soffit, is the most efficient system for venting a bathroom exhaust fan to the exterior.
The Gold Standard of Venting A Bathroom Exhaust Fan
The Soffit Vent is a revolutionary alternative to vent the roof. Cutting holes in the roof’s sheathing can, and often does create roof leaks a catastrophic water damage in the attic. Venting through the roof can also void a roof warranty in certain cases.
The Soffit Vent now offers builders and homeowners the ability to vent bathroom exhaust fans through the soffit safely and effectively
The Soffit Vent uses the exact same concept of the exhaust system of a vehicle for Clear Air Quality.
