Why Should You Worry About The Ventilation in Your Attic?

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 | 11:32 pm

In our ever-strengthening bid to cut down on those things that are damaging our world, one needs not look far to find ways to cut down on energy consumption.

There are a number of roof ventilation methods (natural ones, mechanical ones etc.) but each provide the same benefits that can save you a lot of money in the long run.

046462203801Rudy Esquivel of JB Wholesale Roofing and Building Supplies tells us that homes are now more tightly packed now than they were in times past, and are unable to ‘breathe’ as easily, making ventilation a must-have addition to any new, or near new, house project. He says that attic ventilation systems work by creating an airflow within the attic space. Air comes in through an intake vent and leaves via an exhaust vent.

Rudy says that when the seriously hot months hit, attic ventilation allows the massive heat that build up to escape. If you don’t have a ventilated roof, your attic space will be almost unbearable to enter. The buildup of heat can also damage the roof shingles according to Nizam, landing you with a potentially significant outlay in the future.

Proper ventilation also takes some of the workload away from your air conditioning unit. If your air conditioning is running for less time, your energy bills will automatically begin to drop, and it will help preserve the health of your air conditioning unit making it potentially last much longer than if it is strained all throughout the hot months.

If temperatures drop, moisture can begin to creep its way into your attic. Rudy tells us that this is the point at which molds and mildews develop, leading to the wood inside your attic rotting (and again, another potentially significant outlay).

It’s clear that attic ventilation is a necessity in any home. If you feel like your energy bills are soaring, it’s time to think about how to cut costs. When you decide to put some good ventilation into your home project think of JB Wholesale Roofing and Building Supplies as they have everything you need to get the job done right.
