Ridge Vents & Roof Ventilation
Proper roof and attic ventilation is essential for your home
It’s understandable that roof ventilation is often overlooked, as most people are simply worried about their roof keeping their home dry. However, a well-ventilated roof can make life easier and better for those living beneath it. Proper roof and attic ventilation can lower heating and cooling costs, improve interior comfort, and grant a longer life to roof shingles. In the summertime, a properly ventilated roof allows hot air in the attic to escape, reducing the demand on your air conditioning system. In the winter, ventilation combines with good attic insulation to keep the roof surface cold, so that snow won’t melt on the roof surface and then freeze to form ice dams along the eaves.
Types of roof vents
There are different types of roof vents and different strategies for achieving effective roof ventilation. Here’s a brief list:
- Ridge Vents
- Soffit Vents
- Gable-End Vents
- Powered Attic Ventilators (PAVs)
- Box Vents
- Wind Turbines
