How Does Ventilation Work?
Roof vents use the wind, solar, electrical energy or natural convection to move air out of the attic area. In the cold, ventilation can vent moisture from a home and prevent ice dams. In the heat, ventilation can remove hot air, keeping energy costs down and both your home and attic at a comfortable temperature.
During the summer months, heat on your roof can get trapped inside your attic, making extremely hot conditions throughout your home. Attic heat can seep into your home, making your rooms less comfortable and causing your air conditioning system to run non-stop. Proper ventilation can help break the cycle, remove the excess heat and work towards making every room evenly comfortable.
BENEFITS OF ROOF VENTILATION
INCREASED ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Energy efficiency is increased because the temperature of the attic is lower, and therefore hot air isn’t permeating into you home. Proper ventilation keeps your air conditioner from having to work as hard, as long and as often. This not only reduces energy costs, but also means your heating and cooling system will last longer.
EVEN TEMPERATURE THROUGHOUT YOUR HOME
Ventilation can help to keep every room in your home at the same, even temperature so that you don’t have to turn up the air conditioner to keep particular rooms comfortable. Having the proper ventilation in place saves your shingles and extends the life of your original roof, or roof replacement.
PROPER VENTILATION PRESERVES INSULATION
Proper ventilation also preserves your insulation by preventing the appearance of droplets from condensation caused by trapped vapors from home appliances. Well-placed ventilation in your home prevents trapped moisture, which can come into contact with, and damage, your home’s wood framing.
ROOF VENTILATION OPTIONS
- Power vents -These vents use solar or electric power to run motors to drive the air out of the attic. Some have adjustable thermostats to trigger them to run when the attic reaches a particular temperature or humidity.
- Static vents and soffit vents – Static vents use the wind or natural convection to transfer cooler air into the attic and hotter air out. They work in conjunction with soffit vents which are positioned under the eaves of the house in the soffits. They come in a wide variety of styles including ridge vents, air hawks, turtle vents, or mushroom vents.
- Turtle vents, Air Hawks, and Mushroom Vents – These vents are placed along the ridge of the roof with even spacing, and allow air to come out. These are primarily used when there is not enough ridge to support adequate ventilation with ridge vents.
