Attic ventilation isn’t something many of us think about regularly. Insulation keeps your home warm, and in an unfinished space, in generally lays above the finished spaces in your home. This keeps your home warm in the winter, and in the summer, works to keep your living spaces cooler.
It is, however, important to understand for the health of your house.
Above that is generally open space – which works as a holding space for heat between the insulation and the roof.
The issue can be that if it gets too heated up there, the heat can move into your home in the summer, and can melt snow and create ice dams in the winter.
This is where attic vents can help.
Depending on the size of your house, different vents can be used like soffit vents and gable vents. A professional can help you determine what may be best for your particular home.
