YOUR ATTIC NEEDS TO BREATH FRESH AIR!
Your attic plays an important role in keeping your home comfortable and cooling costs in check, but only if configured properly.
Your attic needs to “breath” fresh air to prevent heat build-up. If your attic has poor air circulation, heat from the sun will build up in your attic space. This heat will eventually penetrate living spaces below causing you to run your air conditioner longer to achieve a desire temperature. This adds unnecessary wear and tear on your cooling system and reduces the life of your air conditioner.
AIR CIRCULATION WILL KEEP YOU COOL
Proper attic ventilation pulls fresh air into your attic and expels stagnant hot air, preventing it from building up and impacting living spaces.
Air from outside should enter the attic thru intake vents placed low on the roof line (at the soffit or eave). This fresh air pushes hot air out thru exhaust vents placed high on the roof line. The combination of sufficient intake and exhaust vents will allow continuous air circulation – much like a human lung, it allows your attic to breath. Click here to learn more.
PROPER VENTILATION SAVES YOU MONEY
Attic ventilation is a smart and affordable way to reduce energy use, increase living space comfort while protecting your home investment. In summer it can cut your cooling cost and extend the life of your air conditioner. In winter it can help minimize moisture build-up which can lead to structural damage and mold problems.
