I'm putting in new 3" round soffit vents. Does it matter what
direction the slanted louvers face, whether towards or away from the
building. I was just thinking that facing outward may allow better
exposure to the wind resulting in better air circulation. Or, not?
Thanks for the help guys. Regarding the insulation, I was surprised
that none came drifting out when the soffit was removed because the
crawlspace is filled with blown in insulation that is quite deep and
appears to uniformly cover the enitre area. I'd been expecting to
have to contrive something to put up between the rafters to keep it
away from the vents. I *think* I'm glad there was none.
I used a product with an inaccurate name: hardware cloth. It's not cloth,
but a mesh with holes bigger than window screen.
Easy to find at hardware or home improvement stores. It's quite stiff, so
it'll stay in whatever shape/position/angle you need.
Inaccurate name? Been that way for some time Joe. Was called hardware
cloth 35 yrs ago when I worked in a real old fashoned hardware store. A
rose is a rose...
