How many times in the last year have you thought about your attic or your Roof Ridge Vents? If you are like most people, you probably did not think about proper attic insulation! The attic is a place in your home that is most left untouched and if the attic is properly insulated, you can save money on your heating and cooling bill. Most people ignore their attic until they hear a critter crawling around in there or they see water leaks coming through your ceilings. It may be too late and it will mean you need to call an experienced roofing contactor Charlotte Ace Roofing
Not only does your attic need to be properly insulated, your attic also needs to be properly ventilated. The truth is, we may think that everything is fine in our attic. But an improperly ventilated or insulated attic will slowly cause damage to your shingles and increase your home heating and cooling energy costs.
Having a proper attic ventilation system in your attic will drastically reduce the amount of moisture. It will also help to increase the lifespan of your roof. Too much moisture and trapped heat inside of your attic can cause your shingles to blister. The whole idea behind roof ventilation is to ensure a good and constant stream of air circulation in the attic. It will help reduce the moisture.
Ridge vents are a different type of ventilation system in your attic, and usually they are installed on the peaks of roofs. The purpose of the ridge vent is to allow warm, humid air to slip out from your attic. The ridge vent works with the soffit vents to ensure that the attic gets the best ventilation. In other words, this is what happens when a proper ventilation system is installed. Cold air is introduced through the soffit vents. Once the cold air is in, the heated air accelerates the cold air and it is lifted to the top of the attic. Then, it gets out of the ridge vents, providing a cold roof affect.
