Advantages of Roofing Ventilation

Proper airflow in your attic comes with a number of advantages. It can help protect against wood rotting, which may result in expensive repairs. Roofing materials may also become damaged. Ice dams may also form during winter.

Here are some of the ways roof vents help protect your home against these issues:

  • Prevents moisture buildup in the attic, which helps stop condensation during winter
  • Moderates the temperature in the attic while maintaining comfort levels in other parts of the home
  • Protects roofing materials, such as shingles, from warping and other damage
  • Prevents excess heat buildup, which may impact energy efficiency and costs
  • Keeps your home compliant with local building codes, which now require proper ventilation of attics

Do you have reason to be worried about any of the above? Give us a call and one of our crew members will come over to assess the condition of your attic and roof ventilation system.

Different Types of Roofing Ventilation

There are several different types of roofing ventilation systems available, but two of the most popular are as follows:

Benefits of Soffit Vents

These vents are installed on the underside of a home’s eaves (called soffits) and allow outdoor air to flow up into the attic. Soffit vents are remarkably efficient as they draw up cool air into the attic while pushing warmer air out through topside vents. Below are 3 benefits we found with soffit vents.

3 Benefits for Soffit Vents:

  • Keeps Attic cooler -
    Installing Soffit vents allows the outdoor air to flow through the attic. This allows the attic to be much cooler in the summer and can help reduce summer energy costs by not having your air conditioner work so hard in order to keep your attic cool. In turn, this helps keep the whole home cooler.

  • Reduces Getting Mildew or Mold -
    In the winter months, having Soffit vents will also help dramatically decrease the moisture in your attic. By not having moisture sit in your attic, which is a breeding ground for mold and mildew, it won't allow funguses to live or thrive.

  • Helps your Roof -
    Soffit vents help improve your roofing, if your attic is too hot for too long, the extreme temperatures in your attic can cause damage to the roofing tiles or prematurely age them.

There are two types of soffit vents: individual and continuous. Individual vents are most common and are fitted in between soffit joists. Continuous vents are long, narrow and run the length of your soffit; these work best when eaves are narrow but can be used in most any home.

Benefits of Gable Vents

Gable vents are installed on the exterior wall of an attic to allow airflow inside. Unlike soffit vents, gable vents are meant to be seen. They provide the benefits of attic ventilation while adding a touch of style to your home. Most of the time these vents are installed at the apex just under the roof.

These types of vents are one way to ensure that your attic does not ever become overheated. These vents allow cold air to move through into the attic and will help cool the whole house down. Below are 3 benefits to getting gable vents.

3 Benefits of Using Gable Vents:

  • Cost -
    The price point of gable vent fans what draw people to it. They are generally much more affordable than other types of roof ventilation. Gable vent fans also only cost you about 4 cents per hour to run.
  • Venting Ability -
    Gable vent fans can help cool a large space and provide a little less than 1,300 cubic feet of air every minute or so. If you have a smaller attic, you will only need one, but if you have a larger attic you may need more than that.
  • Convenience -
    Often times a gable vent fan can be operated by a simple thermostat.

Gable vents work very well with other ventilation systems, such as soffit vents. If you’re worried that a gable vent isn’t enough to ensure proper circulation in your attic, you can also install a ventilator. This small fan will manufacture airflow by pushing air in and out through the gable vent.
