Proper Attic Ventilation – Summer Heat

Heat Rises. Rising heat will get trapped in the attic if proper ventilation is not in place. Attic ventilation includes:

  • Fans (Roof, Peak, Whole House)
  • Vents (Soffit, Peak, Roof or Ridge)
  • Windows

Excessive heat, without ventilation, can lead to mold or delaminated sheathing.attic

SOLUTIONS:

Manual Solutions – Open the windows periodically for ventilation. Clear clutter or blockage from vents.

Unassisted Solutions – Add vent or fan. Attic fans with a thermostat & humidistat help eliminate damaging moisture & heat.
