Air Balance is critical to the long life of your roof
At first it may seem odd to add insulation for warmth and then purposely allow cold air to enter the attic through vents, but this combination is the key to a durable and energy-efficient home. Balance is the key: in the winter, allowing a natural flow of outdoor air to ventilate the attic helps keep it cold, which reduces the potential for ice damming.
In the summer, natural air flow in a well-vented attic moves super-heated air out of the attic, protecting roof shingles and removing moisture. Ridge Vents provide essential ventilation for a home’s attic space. Ridge vents can be selected to match or compliment a home’s color and roofing material and this is one of those energy efficient home improvements that saves you money over time, it ends up paying for itself in the end.
Positioned at the peak of your roof, the ridge vent allows for excellent air flow throughout the attic.
