Have you ever been in your attic and it’s been so hot you can barely stand it? It sounds like your home has inadequate attic ventilation, which is essential for efficient heating and cooling. Surprisingly, most homes are built without proper ventilation. In the attic, air must move at a continuous rate in order to expel hot air on summer days, otherwise ,it’s very difficult to cool your home.
Additionally, improper ventilation results in moisture buildup, which dampens the attic and insulation and creates the perfect conditions for mold growth. Wet insulation also loses its R-value or the thermal resistance value.
As part of our free 12-point home energy analysis, All About Energy Solutions will assess your attic ventilation. If it is not up to our ventilation standards, we’ll recommend adding ridge vents that allow air to flow through the soffits and escape the attic.
