The Importance of Attic Ventilation
One of the most important – and most ignored – topics when focusing on roofing maintenance is proper attic ventilation. As we prepare for the warm temperatures that the spring and summer months, it’s essential to have a well-ventilated attic in order to keep the temperatures in the attic low.
The low attic temperatures will help decrease cooling costs. Your air conditioner will not have to work as hard to cool the attic. Some tend to confuse proper ventilation with proper insulation. While the two work together, if you don’t have proper ventilation, the insulation could even cause temperatures to rise, as it retains solar heat.
Our qualified attic ventilation experts at Paradigm Roofing fully understand the importance of having proper ventilation. It is estimated that roughly nine out of 10 homes nationwide currently have inadequate ventilation, primarily because homeowners are unaware of the potential issues that could be caused. Improper ventilation throughout the home can lead to siding, paint and wallpaper damage, warping and cracking of shingles and, of course, higher energy costs.
