Answer: 
This item only provides clear channel/pathway for air to flow from soffit vent to roof vents, so that attic insulation will not block that pathway. You would need soffit vents for this Accuvent to function.

Actually, a fully insulated home does NOT necessarily need soffit vents. Latest building code is moving away from ventilated attics. It's up to you.
To avoid things like ice dams, the first thing is to fully FULLY insulate the home, including ceiling and top of walls... and protect the insulation.

Answer: 
For proper airflow, an attic requires soffit vents at the eaves. If the soffits are blocked with insulation, airflow is blocked. Accuvents help to ensure proper attic ventilation by keeping the soffits clear of insulation. We would recommend using this product in addition to installing soffit vents.

You would need just one that would fasten to the top plate and then wrap up the inside of the roof sheeting. Depending on roof pitch as to how high up above ceiling joist it would cover, but will prevent insulation from blocking soffit vent and channel air toward ridge vent.

Answer: 
If you have a ridge vent, or plan on installing one in the near future, it is better to have it installed the entire span to allow for maximum ventilation. However, if you do not, then you are better off (cost vs. ROI) just installing it over the soffit vents to allow the air to flow over the insulation.

Answer: 
Thanks for your question. The AccuVent soffit insulation baffler should be placed between the rafters all along the eave of the house or garage to allow for proper airflow.

Wall Top Insulation

Asked by
Tempe, AZ

November 30, 2015
I am building a new 2x6 frame and stucco house. Can these be installed from the outside/soffit side of the wall prior to styrofoam. Stapled from the outside and formed up and under the roof sheeting. I am looking for a way to insulate the top of the wall and still allow for air flow. If they are installed from the inside and wrapped out up and along the roof sheeting how do you recommend insulating the top of the wall?

The base of this is specifically designed to go on the top of the wall. That's one of its benefits. Look again at the photo.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 107 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice and easy install I was surprised how easy and quickly these were to install. Only took about an hour. Working as advertised. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to install Seven staples and they were in. Installed about thirty of these and I'm not worried about airflow to my ridge vent now. A simple idea that works, I highly recommend these. Only takes a minute to install one. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smart product Nice design and easy to install, not sure if that would be the case as a retro fit. My installation was right after rough in of garage/shop prior to ceiling and insulation. Sturdy material and did not snag on roofing nails. I like the designation of where to staple which made for consistent placement with staple gun. The tear away tabs allowed easy fit on the gable ends with smaller spacing between rafters. The design looks like it will permit plenty of air flow, time will tell as I finish the interior. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soffit vents Very happy with this product Licensed builder for 30 years Won't build another home without using this product May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Accuvent attic vent Accuvent attic vent is thin, probably subject to deformation with heat. Reinforce staple areas to prevent pull through later on. 41" is too short for my lower pitch roof and desired depth of insulation. Home Depot doesn't appear to carry the longer model. Adjustable panels to fit a variety of top plate configurations. Used the styrofoam ADO vents on one section. Both are similar in quality, mounting, dependability. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality product Installation was challenging because the roof rafters and floor joists in my 80 yr old home are spaced unevenly. At first glance the baffles seem thin and flimsy, but they are actually very rugged and held up well as I carved out openings to accommodate my floor joists. I used these baffles to replace make-shift cardboard baffles I had installed about 20 years ago. They had warped from attic heat, and had separated from the duct tape I had used to secure them. The instructions that came with the accuvents were very basic. I found an installation video on youtube that helped me figure out how to adapt the product to work in my situation. Strongly recommend searching youtube web site for search term "accuvent". I was unable to use a staple gun to secure the ends of the baffle to the top wall plate due to tight quarters, so I used tacks to secure them. I plan to use foam sealant to prevent air leakage between the baffles and structural members. For my application these baffles were head and shoulders superior to anything I could find on the shelves at my local big box stores. Wish Home Depot would consider making them available in stores rather than just online. May 18, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good enough.... This product is MUCH better than the pink Styrofoam ones you can purchase, and the price is right. I was working in a very tight 4/12 pitch attic. This was the best product I could find for the price. NOTE: If you do not have a top plate from the wall below to staple the bottom of the baffle, you will need to be carefully place the baffle so that the air will flow as intended. This can be tough to do, especially in a tight space. April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 22" AccuVent Vinyl Attic Soffit Block This is a really great invention! Inexpensive. Fast and easy to install. Creates a pocket that allows attic insulation to cover the top wall plate, while keeping the airway open to the soffit vents. I've looked at several different types of vents like this - most were made of a very thin styrofoam material that would easily tear, even if handled gently. The AccuVent is a plastic type of material and pretty thin. Feels a bit flimsy until after it is stapled in place. Once installed, it's plenty strong enough to do the job it was intended for. I recommend the AccuVent. March 15, 2016
