Attic ventilationConsidering your attic, when making your home efficient for heating and cooling, is crucial. Your attic is a major player in how your home collects air and where it circulates it. Consider these facts when you think about attic ventilation for your home.

Prevent Problems

You need attic ventilation to prevent problems from occurring in your home and on your roof. For example, there’s this weird thing that happens during the winter time where – if you don’t have attic ventilation – when snow falls on your roof. The snow falls on the roof, then melts when your attic is too warm, and then refreezes as it falls down your gutters. Think of this as a frozen pipe – the gutters get filled with water that freezes and expands.

Ventilation As a Solution

With ventilation though, cold air is allowed to constantly circulate in your attic. This allows the roof to stay relatively cold. Note too that quality insulation in your attic’s floor should prevent the cold air from coming down into your home. With the roof cold, the snow doesn’t melt into water that refreezes, but instead it stays in that heavy precipitous form that it first landed in.

In the summertime, there’s not so much a costly problem – like the ice water – but there is a certain temperature rising thing that happens. And with warmer weather, venitilation can help circulate the air that comes in and push it back. This process keeps an even flow going on, meaning your attic won’t become a hotbox.

Knowing This…

By knowing that ventilation keeps snow-turned-water from freezing in your gutters, you’re effectively saving yourself a lot of money. By knowing that ventilation circulates hot summer air out, you’re keeping your home and attic significantly cooler. Make sure you have ventilation that does these jobs and does them right.

Easton was very personable and very knowledgable. He walked us through the whole process as he made the repair. He also diagnosed some other issues that were going on and offered some potential solutions. He came out on a Saturday and his rates were the same as Monday thru Friday, and his service call rate was very reasonable. I would not hesitate to use his services again.

Western Heating and Air has always taken great care of me as a customer. Spencer recently came with another technician he was training and they were super professional and did a great job looking over my HVAC system. Also did a minor repair.
