Residential Quality Guidelines


There are two options available in the 1200 series. Our RM 1200 is ideal for roof mount applications,and the IM 1200 is great interior mount solution for areas with an existing vent. Represents smaller attic zones (see figure below)Represents larger attic zones (see figure below)
Recommended air intake venting (eaves & soffits) size requirements:
• Attic area (square feet)/2=square inches of inlet vent area
• Attic area (square meter)/0.29=square centimeters of inlet vent area
Typical 3000 SF house divided into attic zones with solar star recommendations. Typical 1200 SF house.
Zone 1: 600 SF | roof pitch: 7/12 Zone 2: 2400 SF | roof pitch: 7/12 Single Zone:1200 SF | roof pitch: 4/12
Suggested options: 1 X RM 1200 or 1 X IM 1200. Suggested options: 2 X RM 1600 Suggested options: 1 X RM 1200
For smaller attic zones with less volume, the RM 1200 is the best option. When a roof mount is not desirable, or for areas with an existing gable vent (or other passive vent) use the the IM 1200. For expansive attic zones with more volume, the RM 1600 provides the most efficient venting solution. For homes with a single smaller attic zone, the RM 1200 is an ideal solution.
