Why Proper Heat Ventilation in Summer Matters
With winter only just ending, it might seem a bit premature to start thinking about feeling too warm. But now is just the right time to begin thinking about preparing your home for summer – that’s why everyone has such long spring cleaning lists this time of year! It’s also why we think now is the best time to get some of RoofPRO’s expert roofing contractors into your home to make sure your heat is properly ventilating.
When the summer sun hits the roof of your house, it heats up your attic. The heat then expands, spreading this extra warmth throughout your house. When you’re dealing with summer heat – and potentially increasing air conditioning costs – you definitely don’t want hot air taking up residence in your home. And the big issue here is that you might not even know that it is happening! If your house feels warm, you might just turn on some extra fans or more A/C. By the end of the summer, however, your electric bills will certainly tell a different story. A little work in the spring can save you a lot of money at the end of the summer!
Attic Ventilation Problems
If you are experiencing poor attic ventilation, not only will you see the problems outlined above, but you could also potentially see structural house damage. Hot air can cause condensation to form, which can lead to water in places it should not be. Extra water, combined with the heat, can cause damage to your roofing materials. If the attic is well-ventilated, however, not only will this help protect your roof, but it can also keep your home cooler.
Roof Ventilation Systems
The professional roofers at RoofPRO can help make sure that your roof is providing the best protection for your home. By completing a thorough roof inspection, our roofers will determine whether or not you need any additional roof vents to help solve potential problems. The main goal is to have any air with extra moisture in it safely leave through your home’s exhaust system. This will keep your home cooler and safer.
