Create Natural Ventilation With A Louvered Ceiling Vent Create Natural Ventilation With A Louvered Ceiling Vent

Natural ventilation can be achieved by using louvered ceiling vents. You may need to have a contractor install these for you, unless you already have the space available to install them yourself.  Here is what you need to know about how they work and why you should use them.

What Is a Louvered Ceiling Vent?


A louvered ceiling vent works to allow air to flow naturally in any space. The slats, or louvers, are designed to be spaced perfectly to allow for natural circulation throughout your home. They are not only beautiful while available in many finishes, they are a great way to increase the air circulation through your home.

Why Use Louvered Vents?


Increasing the natural air flow through your home will help to cut back on your energy costs. Louvered vents can be placed in ceilings or walls, and can be purchased in metal or wood finishes. You can generally find them ranging in price from $5-$50 depending on the size, shape, and finish you choose. It’s an affordable way to make your home more energy efficient. Louvered vents are also usually reversible. This means you can change the direction the air flows in and out to create maximum ventilation efficiency. You don’t need a lot of building supplies, and don’t need to worry about other methods of circulation and ventilation.
