YOUR ATTIC NEEDS TO BREATHE FRESH AIR!
Attic ventilation plays an important role in keeping your home comfortable and reducing your summer cooling costs.
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 the desired temperature. This adds unnecessary wear and tear to your cooling system and reduces the life of your air conditioner.
AIR CIRCULATION WILL KEEP YOU COOL
Properly configured attic ventilation pulls fresh air into your attic via intake vents and expels stagnant hot air through exhaust vents. This prevents hot air from building up in the attic and radiating down into the living spaces below.
Air from outside should enter the attic thru intake vents placed low on the roofline (at the soffit or eave). This fresh air pushes hot air out thru exhaust vents placed high on the roofline. Combining sufficient intake and exhaust vents will allow continuous air circulation – much like a human lung, it allows your attic to breathe. 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, leading to structural damage and mold problems.
ATTIC VENTILATION IS AN AFFORDABLE HOME IMPROVEMENT
Good attic ventilation is an affordable upgrade that pays for itself often within a year or so, depending on your lifestyle. Ventilation can be installed in a day with minimal disruption to your home, allowing you to reap the benefits rapidly.
