Why Ventilate?

You may be curious as to why ventilation is important – ventilation is very important for many reasons.

In order to fight heat and moisture, homes in all climates must be ventilated year-round. 

Heat in unventilated attics may cause temperatures to exceed 150 degrees. This can cause damage to shingles, roof sheathing, and also radiate down into the living area.

Moisture is a home's #1 enemy, and can cause rot, mildew, mold, paint blister and ineffective insulation. 

It is estimated that over 50% of homes show visible signs of improper ventilation.

Proper ventilation reduces energy bills, winter ice build up, and eliminates mold and mildew, which can lead to major health problems. Ventilating the attic space extends the life of shingles, insulation, and other building components.
