Properly installing a quality attic ventilation system can save significant energy dollars while extending the lifetime of an existing roof. Calling a home renovator like Smallwood can guarantee quality!
Hot air trapped in a poorly ventilated attic eventually penetrates ceiling linings and affects the temperature below, giving air-conditioning systems more work to do. Installing proper a attic ventilation system will move air out of the attic before it gets near that critical point, preventing your energy costs from spiking each summer.
Protection from Structural Damage
Excess heat can cause roof singles to crack and warp, aging the roof prematurely and compromising its ability to protect the home below it. Likewise, wood framing and siding can also bear the brunt of the burden in improperly ventilated attics, eventually splitting or cracking from the super-heated air. In the winter, condensation from showers and appliances can build up in the attic, soaking the insulation and diminishing its effectiveness.
