Why Is Proper Attic Ventilation Important?

The many benefits of attic insulation are well known, but the equally important benefits of attic ventilation are often disregarded. In fact, many VA homeowners are convinced that their attic should be completely sealed to cut energy costs, and it takes home improvement contractors in Virginia to tell them that good attic ventilation is just as important as good insulation.

Summer Problems

Without proper attic ventilation in summer, the sun-heated attic air becomes extremely hot and can damage the underlining of the roof as well as the insulation. What’s more, the hot air spreads through the attic floor into the rest of the home, making living conditions for those inside unpleasant, and sometimes also causing damage to objects. Virginia licensed contractors know the value of good attic ventilation and can prevent the scenario described above.

Winter Problems

Without proper attic ventilation in winter, moisture is much more likely to build up in your attic and from there to spread to the rest of the home, causing mold, and possibly damaging your electronics and furniture. Home improvement services can help you better ventilate your attic, preventing moisture from damaging your home during cold weather.
