What You Should Know About Roofing Ventilation
Roof ventilation brings a flow of fresh air into your attic. Almost all homes have passive ventilation that is built into the ridgeline, but you can also install additional vents that continuously remove hot air and moisture from your attic. Intake and exhaust vents pull in and expel air to help regulate your home’s temperature. Finding the right contractor to guide you through the process facilitates the decision-making process.
If you’re already planning to replace your roof, it’s the perfect time to add vents to improve airflow. This article covers the benefits of proper ventilation in your NJ home.
Can Your Home Benefit from Improved Ventilation?
Do you know the signs that your home needs more ventilation? Roof leaks and poor temperature control may indicate it’s time to invest in vent installation services. Here are some of the top reasons homeowners add more ventilation:
- Attic temperatures, roof vents help regulate temperature in the entire house.
- Reducing attic moisture can prevent ice dams from forming during the winter.
- Preventing moisture buildup may also prolong the life of your insulation.
- Eliminating condensation can prevent damage to roofing materials, including asphalt shingles.
- Improving attic ventilation facilitates compliance with building codes.
You may also save money on your energy bills because better ventilation means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to get the home to the right temperature.
