Categories: Roof Maintenance

Your roofing ventilation is no different! Many people don’t know about the incredible benefits roofing ventilation provides when it is done right. Peak Roofing & Construction has helped countless homeowners improve their home’s energy efficiency and property value by simply letting their roof breathe.

Energy Efficiency

Putting more holes in your roof may seem counter-efficient to keeping your home cool or warm. However, roofing ventilation is a careful calculation of allowing the perfect amount of air in and out to keep your attic from stagnating cool or warm air inside. During the summer, you don’t want hot air stuck inside your attic, warming up the rest of your home. This can cause your air conditioning system to work twice as hard as it needs to. By providing the right type of ventilation, the air is continually circulated, keeping your home at a more constant temperature. This can save the average homeowner more than 30% annually.

Less Moisture, Less Mold

When air is circulating, the humidity that stagnates in the air is reduced. This can prevent mold from growing inside your attic and causing serious health problems for your family. By investing in proper ventilation, you are investing in your family’s health and well-being.

How to Know Your Ventilation Needs to Be Improved

If you go up into your attic and notice a dramatic shift in temperature, that is a sure sign you need better ventilation. If you start to see moisture and mold or smell mildew in your attic, you need to call a roofing professional right away. They can help prevent costly damage and reduce health risks caused by improper ventilation.
