Roof Vents or Ventilation Systems
Roof vents are a must for proper air circulation within your roof, particularly if your dwelling is located in a hot climate. Not only can poor ventilation substantially increase your heating bill in the summertime, it can also damage your installation and shingles, shortening the life expectancy of your roof. In wintertime, poor air circulation can lead to moisture being trapped inside the roof, which can cause condensation and eventually mold and rot. The addition of air intake and exhaust vents in your roof will help to improve air circulation, giving you a cooler home with lower heating bills.
The general guideline where roof vents are concerned is that very 300 square feet of attic floor space requires one square foot of ventilation area. If your roof is made of asphalt shingles, you must have ventilation or youre at risk of voiding your warranty, which can set you back potentially thousands of dollars should your roof need repairs or replacement in the future.
