Why do homes need to be ventilated?
Last Updated 5 years ago
Ventilation is needed year round to fight the enemies of heat and moisture. Heat in attics without ventilation may cause temperatures to exceed 150 degrees and cause damage to shingles, roof sheathing, and possible radiate into the living area. Moisture is a home's #1 enemy and can cause rot, mildew, mold, paint blisters, and renders the insulation to be ineffective.
Proper Ventilation reduces energy bills, winter ice build up, and eliminates mold / mildew which can lead to major health problems. By ventilating, you are extending the life of shingles, insulation, and other building components.
