Whether you are building a barn for your livestock or want to store large equipment or machinery, maintaining proper ventilation inside your barn is crucial. There are various ways through which you can ensure proper airflow or the exchange of air in your barn. Your choice of the ventilation mechanism depends on the usage of your barn. In this writing, we have covered some ways of ventilating your post-frame barn along with their application.
This type of ventilation system is installed on the top side of your barn roof. In summers, the hot air rises above the ground, going all the way to the upper space of your barn. Having ventilated ridges can provide this hot air a passage to the outside environment.
A vented overhang improves the ventilation of your pole barn by drawing cooler air from the outside. The cool air provides your barn with good airflow hence maintaining a pleasant temperature in your barn.
If you are looking for another passive form of barn ventilation, a gable vent is a choice to go for. These are installed on the exteriors of the barns towards the top of the roof.
