Attic Air Leak vs. Attic Ventilation

Published on September 19, 2022

Both attic leaks and attic ventilation factor into the health of your attic and indoor quality. When your attic insulation performance drops unexpectedly, the issue could be with your attic ventilation or hidden air leaks. Attic insulation in Toronto is key to a healthy and energy-efficient household. Get to the bottom of your attic insulation trouble in the Greater Toronto Area with attic inspections from the experts at EcoComfort. Our trained team of professionals will carefully assess the condition of your attic, identifying vulnerabilities with attic ventilation and air leaks. 

Here’s what you need to know about attic air leaks and ventilation.

What Causes Air Leaks

attic insulation torontoMany people often confuse ventilation and air leaks as the same issue. Although they both affect the status of your attic insulation, attic air leaks and ventilation are separate problems. Air leaks occur when openings in the attic and roof cavity allow air to escape. Air leaks reduce energy efficiency by minimizing the ease with which attic insulation can retain heat. Air leaks can wreak havoc on attic insulation in Toronto, leading to water damage, excess humidity, pest intrusions, and other contaminants. 

Air leaks allow valuable energy to escape rather than be retained by your attic insulation, causing your heating and cooling systems to work harder and utility bills to increase. Before upgrading or topping up your blown-in cellulose insulation, schedule an attic inspection from the EcoComfort Insulation team. 

Why Proper Attic Ventilation Matters

Adequate attic ventilation is key to a comfortable and healthy home. Proper ventilation in your attic prevents a buildup of excess moisture and heat that interferes with the effectiveness of your attic insulation. 

Without sufficient attic ventilation, the air in your home will become stagnant, causing contaminants to settle mold, high moisture levels, and ice damming in the winter. Unfortunately, many homeowners have no idea their attic insulation in Toronto is affected by a lack of ventilation or blocked roof vents. Blocked vents prevent hot air and humidity from escaping, resulting in an overly heated attic. It also prevents air from circulating, trapping mold spores in stagnant air. Together the heat, humidity, and stale air are a recipe for attic mold, which, if not intercepted quickly, can destroy attic insulation. 

The team at EcoComfort Insulation will help you upgrade your attic ventilation system to enable better airflow and energy efficiency in your home. If you need attic mold remediation, you can replace your old insulation with high-quality blown-in cellulose insulation. We use sustainable insulation materials designed to prevent mold infestations.
