Proper ventilation is important to the durability and health of your home. The Hayes Company will help you balance the need for fresh air against the need to prevent uncomfortable and inefficient drafts.

Home Ventilation

    • Obviously, there is a certain amount of air that needs to circulate throughout the home. Air in homes carries moisture, dust, combustion gases from furnaces, stoves, fireplaces, and water heaters, and sometimes VOC’s from household products.  To keep your home healthy, we follow industry standards for fresh air requirements.  We can help determine levels of air turnover and address these concerns.  We can help you balance the need for energy efficiency while maintaing enough fresh air for a healthy home.

Attic Ventilation

    • Attics can be correctly vented or correctly unvented.  Most attics are ventilated and meant to circulate outside air. If there aren’t enough intake or exhaust vents you’ll have issues like ice damming in the winter and intolerable upper floors in the summer.  The Hayes Company can help you improve this ventilation using these products:
      • Solar Turbines
      • Wind Turbines
      • Passive Roof Vents
      • Gable Vents
      • Soffit Vents

Crawl Space Ventilation

    • Just like an attic, a crawl space can be vented or unvented.  An “unvented” crawl space should be vented using inside air instead of outside air.  A crawl space that is not properly vented can cause major problems from moisture issues such as mold and rot.
