Question: Why Ventilate?
Answer: To fight the enemies, heat and moisture, you must ventilate year round . Heat in unventilated attics may cause temperatures to exceed 150 degrees causing damage to shingles , roof sheathing and possibly radiate to the living area. Moisture being the #1 enemy, causes rot, mildew, mold, paint blisters, and renders insulation to be ineffective. Proper ventilation reduces energy bills, winter ice build up and eliminates mold/mildew which can lead to major health problems. By ventilating, you are extending the life of other building components, shingles , insulation, etc. Categories: Vents Metal Vents Copper Vents Stainless Steel Vents View All Questions
