Ventilation & Insulation
Ventilation should never be an afterthought in constructing a home. Without proper ventilation, needless heat and humidity can cause serious problems.
In Connecticut, ventilation and insulation in a roofing system is critical. Proper ventilation allows air to flow—out with the hot air and in with the cool air. When stale, overheated air in your home or attic is vented out and fresh air is pulled in, you have an “air exchange.” And Connecticut Roofcrafters has 15 years of experience in matching the right ventilation in a roofing system.
Effective ventilation requires a balancing act. You want to “wash” the entire attic by pulling air from the intake vents low on the roof’s edge, or in the soffit, to the vents at the ridge in the high areas.
Ventilation should never be an afterthought in constructing a home. Without proper ventilation, needless heat and humidity can cause serious problems, such as:
- premature deterioration in attic and roof structures or shingles and paint
- air conditioners being overworked, consuming more energy and costing you more money
- lowering the R-value (heat resistance) of some insulation
- enabling mold, mildew and wood rot
In addition, in many circumstances, proper ventilation is required to validate warranty coverage for most roofing shingles.
Related, an effective roofing solution requires the right type and amount of insulation. Proper insulation makes your home more comfortable by enabling a more consistent and uniform temperature, keeps your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, and it will save you money and use less energy for heating and cooling.
