What is Attic Ventilation?
Attic ventilation is a process that enables your attic system to ventilate air and produce a better quality living environment. Poor ventilation can cost you thousands in heating and air conditioning expenses, but it can also introduce harmful pollutants that can cause serious illness to your family.
Why do I need fresh air in my attic?
There are 3 major reasons for why you want fresh air circulating in your attic:
- To remove moisture and humidity in the attic that can lead to mold problems.
- To remove heat and cool the attic.
- To vent out carbon monoxide and other pollutants.
A proper ventilated house attic should have at least 2.5 air exchanges per hour. Building codes require proper ventilation to help prevent moisture accumulation which will cause mildew, mold and wood rot to happen in your home. This air exchange also removes Carbon Monoxide, Pesticides and other pollutants.
