Does your home need roof ventilation

Does your home need roof ventilation?

Inadequate roof ventilation can  result in your home being both uncomfortable and unhealthy . Poorly ventilated attics don’t have an escape route for the heat that builds up. When the weather is hot, the moist air will condense on the underside of the sheathing in  a poorly ventilated attic. An evenly vented roof will allow the hot air to  circulate freely in the attic.

When the temperature increases outside, we all want to stay cool inside. A properly vented roof allows heat to escape, thereby reducing the workload on your air conditioner.

If your home is too hot during the summer, you will definitely make your ac cooler,  and therefore, use more energy. But when your home stays cooler during summer because of proper ventilation and warm during the winter, you won’t have to rely on your AC or your heat as much and you’ll be able to save money on your energy bills each month.

The  types of roof ventilation: Exhaust vents and Intake vents . A  solar exhaust  vent contains a small solar panels which powers an exhaust fan inside the frame. … Although they don’t work at night due to the lack of sunlight, this is typically a non-issue because they’re most needed during the day when the sun rays are heating up your roof and attic.

Exhaust vents can include either be a roof turbine or ridge vent. A turbine is located on the top of a roof and uses wind to spin around and pull hot air out of the attic. Ridge vents extend the length of the top of the roof. These roof vents draw hot air out of the attic.

It’s important not to cover any attic vents with insulation because this will prevent outside air from coming in and attic air from’s also important to have plenty of intake vents above the  soffit.

Does Your Home Need Roof ventilation? – keep on reading 

“Proper insulation on the attic floor will keep the attic cooler because it blocks heat from below. The most common mistake homeowners make when installing insulation is to block the flow of air at the eaves. NEVER COVER ATTIC SOFFIT VENTS WITH INSULATION — use rafter vents and soffit vents to maintain airflow.” Quoted from Energy Star

My Florida Roofing was phenomenal, always on time and detail oriented. Very knowledgeable on the different types of roofs and options. Felix and Maria, picked up the phone immediately and always answered my questions. The owner Rene was on site frequently looking over the job. They were also the best priced and were even recommended by other roofing companies. Very happy with the outcome.

Having my roof done by My Florida Roofing has been nothing less than an excellent experience. The entire team has been super professional and attentive from the beginning. From the office team who handles the paperwork/permits and customer service and quickly sets up appointments; to Felix, our very knowledgeable and courteous sales rep, who was in constant contact throughout the project time, to give us updates and check up on us; to the installers who did an amazing job; to the owner who made sure to personally come and inspect before, during and after the roof was installed. Everyone did an outstanding job. Now let's talk about GOING ABOVE & BEYOND: Maria - the project manager. She was absolutely the person that made the entire process smooth and easy. She was always available to answer any questions and to give me updates (Maria - you are amazing- thank you!) We love our new roof. I am thrilled we decided to use My Florida Roofing. Thank you! I totally recommend this company and to anyone who needs to come by and see our roof we are at Lindsey Lanes - Vero Beach (house will be painted off-white soon, but for now is Yellow) - See photo for reference.
