What Are the Benefits of Roof Ventilation?, Fairfield, Ohio

One aspect of a home that is often overlooked is the ventilation in the roof and attic. Even though most people don’t include it in their regular home maintenance, it’s a crucial aspect of keeping your house protected both inside and out. Here are a few benefits of roof ventilation to help you understand why it should be addressed during your next checkup.

4 Benefits of a Home’s Ventilation

1. Better Health

Even if you have properly installed attic insulation, the air inside the entire house can eventually become contaminated with pollutants, bacteria, and moisture. If it isn’t circulated out of the home, this poor indoor air quality leads to issues such as a runny nose, itchy eyes, or respiratory problems, which is why it’s important to ensure the ventilation system is installed correctly.

2. Decreased Humidity

When the home lacks the right amount of ventilation, the moisture in the air begins to build up in the attic. If left unaddressed, this can cause mold to grow, which can lead to costly property damage and dangerous health concerns, such as skin and throat irritation.

3. Temperature Regulation

ventilationEspecially helpful in the summer, the right system expels the hot air that builds up in the attic and keeps the entire home cooler. Not only does this make for a more comfortable home, but it will also save money on utility bills, as the HVAC system won’t have to work as hard.

4. Longer Life Span

Without proper ventilation, the hot air accumulating in the attic puts pressure on the shingles as it tries to find a way to escape, causing them to come dislodged. When the air can flow freely, however, this problem is easily avoidable.
