It’s key that your roof ventilation is working correctly every day with every season. The goal is to create a gentle movement of air inside the attic space replacing the stale humid air with fresh air.
Fall to spring, a poorly ventilated roof will provide the perfect environment for ice dams. The accumulated heat does not escape efficiently which eventually will lead to water leaking into your home.
During the summer, heat accumulates in the attic and if it not vented out properly, your home will struggle to cool off. This heat will continue to radiate into the structure of your home even after the sun goes down.
If you have an excess of humidity in your attic there is a high risk of mold growth. When the attic is properly vented, this removes the humid air which prevents the ability for mold growth.
The solution is to be sure to install and effective ventilation system for your home. The various vents include ridge vents, wind turbines, box vents, power vents, and soffit vents.
