Even though you don’t live in your attic, proper ventilation is important to the health of your roof. This ventilation system will be installed with any new roofing shingles to ensure your roof doesn’t develop ice dams during the cold weather or moisture problems and to protect it from the high heat of the summer months. No matter what time of year, proper air flow is essential.
Purposes of Attic Ventilation
There are several purposes to proper attic ventilation, including additional comfort in your home, protection from damage to the structure of your home and roofing materials due to the weather and reduce energy consumption. Attic ventilation can provide:
- Reduce moisture to prevent mold, mildew and rotting
- Prevent moisture that can affect the effectiveness of insulation
- Prevent ice dams and ice buildup
- Extend the life of your roof and home
Air Vent Ridge Vents
The Air Vent ridge vents are one of the best designs to protect your roof from the effects of the weather and provide proper ventilation for your roof. The external baffle deflects the wind and weather elements over the top of the roof, which creates negative pressure that draws the air out of your attic, increasing the air flow within the attic. Air Vent also uses a patented weather filter to further keep out the elements.
Cold Weather Heat Transfer
One of the biggest concerns during the cold weather is moisture buildup due to heat transfer. During the colder months, the heat inside your living area will transfer to your attic, bringing the moisture with it. While proper ventilation can’t stop this transfer, it can minimize the impact it has on your roof. The proper ventilation can provide an adequate flow of cool air to keep moisture to a minimum, stopping the warm air at the attic floor.
