Attic Ventilation in Burlington

In any home, attic ventilation is part of an interconnected system that regulates temperature to facilitate energy efficiency and maintain home comfort. As it is, attic insulation, ventilation, and air sealing work together. Without proper attic ventilation, insulation does not perform at peak.

Ensuring proper attic ventilation in Burlington

In a typical residential home, warm air rises and collects in the attic. The attic vents are designed to allow warm air to leave through the vents. With sufficient air vents installed, optimal ventilation is ensured throughout the attic and roof. Air ventilation is especially important for managing the humidity that collects and minimizing moisture in the attic. As such, a well-ventilated attic does not allow excessive air moisture to accumulate, therefore avoiding problems associated with high levels of humidity.

Problems with Poor Attic Ventilation

  • Rotting Materials & Roof Damage
  • Ineffective Insulation 
  • Mold Infestations 
  • Temperature Fluctuations 
  • Rising Energy Bills 
  • Ice Dams

Poor ventilation in the attic can lead to other more severe problems. Heat Retention and moisture build-up can cause homeowners to need a full range of attic services from insulation removal, mold remediation, and insulation upgrades. 

Signs that attic ventilation requires upgrading

When a home's attic ventilation is insufficient, the heating and cooling system (HVAC) must work harder to provide optimal indoor comfort from season to season. Poorly performing ventilation will also allow moisture to accumulate in the attic and may even allow mold to grow. More than that, poor ventilation allows ice to form along the roofline in winter. For professional attic ventilation in Burlington, the best option is to work with professionals who have the expertise.
