To improve comfort and lower your energy costs, proper insulation is essential. Due to building practices in the area over the years, many homes have minimal insulation. Currently the EPA recommends a minimum of an R49 rating for Midwest Region 5 which includes Illinois. But high efficiency homes are insulated to an R60 rating.
Air intake and exhaust vents are used in ventilating steep-slope roof assemblies to provide a means of allowing outside air to enter and exit attics and ventilation spaces. Air intake vents are used to allow outside air to enter into attics and ventilation spaces. Intake vents should be located at or near soffits or eaves. Intake vents are best used with exhaust vents that are located higher up near the roof peak. This configuration of ventilation air intake along low points and exhaust at high points takes advantage of natural convection.
There are a variety of attic exhaust options, the most common include roof vents and attic fans or a combination of both depending on the size of the attic space.
Robert knows his trade as well as anyone I’ve met, and I always felt completely satisfied with his suggested approach. He and his crew are fast, hard workers and extremely professional. They make sure things are done properly and completely. As an example of the quality standards they set:
They spent a couple of hours on a day where they ended up not doing the work and rescheduling after traveling all the way out to the house and setting up, just to make sure it was done correctly (we had another contractor that needed to fix some previous work, to avoid negatively impacting the quality of the insulation job). Robert would take pictures of things that weren’t correct, take the time to carefully explain why – and whether or not they could correct it themselves. I have no negatives to report at all, I wish all experiences with home contractors were like this.
Installed a new bathroom fan, and vented the fan and another existing fan outside. Very quick, very professional, and a job well done.
From the start of the process to the completion, I couldn’t be happier with service I received from Robert Carroll and his Attic-Air crew. It impressed me that not only did Robert bid the project, he also showed up with the crew and worked right along with them until completion of the job. As a not very handy senior citizen, I appreciated that Robert at no extra cost to me, took the time to wrap my water heater pipes and repair some foil wrap on my HVAC unit located in the attic. He is honest, straightforward, no hard sell, no frills guy. The crew arrived on time and completed the job efficiently in 3 1/2 hours. They left the place cleaner than when they arrived. I highly recommend this company for any attic needs. They do outstanding work.
All of my soffit vents on the second story (colonial home) were completely covered with insulation. The bathroom exhausts were vented into the attic. After using another company for mold remediation, Attic-Air then correctly vented the bathroom exhaust fans through the attic to the outside. Next, they added additional soffit vents, cut the existing wood soffit vents to make them larger and installed baffles in the attic to prevent the insulation from covering the vents again. We also had an attic fan added to help remove the heat in the attic during the hot summer months. Last, they added new insulation and it was brought up 24″ from the original 8″ of insulation. The team did an excellent job. They were winder time, all the bedrooms are now warmer as a result of the added insulation. I don’t remember the exact date we hired them of the amount we paid. I think it has been 2 years.

Proper insulation and ventilation of your home plays a critical role in its comfort, economy and safety. Even seemingly minor breaches in your homes insulation and ventilation can have a dramatic impact - you may notice drafts in the winter, heat and humidity in the summer, escalating energy bills, and potentially even harmful effects such as mold, moisture damage and rot.
We are a leading provider of high quality attic fans in Chicago and Suburbs. Our attic fan installation is done by experienced technicians that have done thousands of attic fan installations for satisfied homeowners through Chicagoland. A powered attic ventilator, or attic fan, is a ventilation fan which regulates the heat level of an attic by exhausting hot air. A thermostat is used to automatically turn the fan off and on. An attic fan can be gable mounted or roof mounted. Additional vents are required to draw in fresh air as the hot air is exhausted.
Roof vents are installed to allow air to circulate in your attic space. Good air circulation will minimize moisture build up in your attic during winter and prevent heat build up in summer. The number of roof vents needed will vary depending on the size of your attic. Air can leak from your house into the attic, and can bring water vapor with it. If your roof deck is cool enough to be at or below dew point, then condensation will form on the underside of the roof. Air movement from outside through the attic, helps remove moisture by diverting it out of the attic before it condenses.
