You’ve probably been told before that all attics need ventilation and that proper ventilation has many benefits for your home. Here is a brief breakdown of exactly how ventilating your attic benefits the overall health and wellbeing of your home and family.
Benefits of Attic Ventilation
Attic ventilation helps maintain a healthy, energy-efficient home. It extends the life of your roofing shingles and underlayment and reduces moisture build-up that can cause rot and mold. The amount of ventilation an attic needs is determined by many factors, but in general, the more ventilation your attic has, the better off you will be. As attic air turnover is increased, the attic temperature will begin to approach that of the ambient outside air temperature, which in turn minimizes heat transfer into your home. Attic venting can also reduce the load on your AC in the summer, which can save you money. In colder climates, it can help in preventing damaging ice damming. In addition to the reduction in your utility bill, a typical installation will usually pay for itself in savings within 1-3 summers of use.
