The holiday season is among us and we’ve creating some roof ventilation tips to help you stay safe and warm this holiday season.
With the holiday season, it also means winter for those of us that live in the Midwest. Homes can struggle to keep warm and utility costs tend to go up. One of the ways to help your home stay warm during these cold months is to make sure that your home is properly ventilated.
Proper roof ventilation manages the temperature and airflow within your attic and ensures that your conditioned air isn’t losing its stability when it comes into contact with your cold or hot roof. If your roof is properly ventilated a roof will have a constant temperature throughout.
When your roof is properly ventilated the air will circulate and save you money on utility expenses and extend the life of your roof. When your roof is not properly ventilated, your attic can become a storage container for hot air. This hot air can create less than ideal temperatures throughout the home.
Also, when air is static moisture related problems can threaten your home. If the air has no where to go it can become attached to your insulation, walls and structure leading to rot, termites and other damage.
To keep your home protected this holiday season (and every season), get your roof and ventilation system inspected so you can prevent any unwanted problems this holiday season.
