Why Ventilation Matters
Ventilation allows stale air to leave your home and allows fresh air to come in. Keeping stale air in your home can lower your indoor air quality and cause you and your loved ones to feel unwell.
Proper ventilation is especially important in your attic. The warm air in your home rises upward, so any indoor air—including conditioned air from your heater—will eventually rise all the way up to the attic. If this air gets trapped in your attic during the winter, then it can melt the snow and ice on your roof. Not only does this result in water and moisture damage on your roof and eventually lead to mold and mildew growths, but the melted snow can trickle down into your gutters and refreeze, which can clog your gutters and create a bigger mess. During the summer, the warm air in your attic will eventually trickle down into the lower levels of your home if there’s no proper ventilation, forcing you to use more power through your cooling system to stay comfortable.
Ventilation is just as important as insulation when keeping you comfortable and protecting your home. Lotze Insulation Design can inspect your attic for proper ventilation. We can recommend products including soffit vents, roof vents, gable end vents and ridge venting, to improve your air flow so the warm air doesn’t build up inside the attic. In more severe cases, we may recommend a thermostat/humidistat controlled attic ventilator fan.
