Attic ventilation is the flow of air through your attic system.
Install Intake Vents – Soffit vents or Under-eave vents should be installed to home specifications to provide fresh outdoor air intake to move throughout your attic system.
Install Exhaust Vents – Ridge vents or Static vents should be installed to home specifications to allow air to recycle out of your attic.
Install Vents Chutes – Vent chutes should be installed inside your attic before insulation is added. Vent chutes prevent your intake vents from getting clogged with installation, keeping your ventilation system in working order.
What does a well ventilated attic offer?
Reduced Energy Bills – Lower your heating & cooling costs by making sure your attic is ventilated properly.
Ice Dam Prevention – Mitigate ice dams by having your attic ventilation installed to specifications.
Mold & Mildew Prevention – Breathe clean air and remove mold and mildew from your home by having the proper ventilation in your home.
Extend Shingle Life – Avoid premature aging of your roofing system when your attic is ventilated according to recommendations.
Heat Build Up – During the warm summer months, excess heat that builds up in the attic during the day results in increased energy costs for cooling your home.
Moisture Build Up – Moisture produced within the home (bathrooms, kitchens etc…) will accumulate inside your attic. If this moist air is not exhausted from your attic, it will condense on your interior roof deck harming your roof’s structure.
Upon warmer temperatures, the frost will melt and drip onto your attic insulation. Wet insulation decreases its insulating value, can lead to mildew and mold, and eventually lead to rotting wood.
