BENEFITS AND USES OF TURBINE VENTS
Turbine ventilators are the preferred choice by homeowners to ventilate attic space in their homes and businesses.
Why Adequate Roof Ventilation is So Important
Your roof ventilation plays an important role in many aspects of day-to-day life in your home. Having the right amount of ventilation in your attic can have a positive effect on the lifespan of your roof system, the comfort and well-being of your family, your future costs for home repairs and how much you pay for heating and cooling.
Proper ventilation in your attic combats excess heat and moisture that wreaks havoc on your home. Heat and moisture buildup in an attic cause different problems
Combats Excess Heat - Cools and - Saves Energy and Protects
When it’s hot outside, the sun beating down on the roof can increase the temperature in the attic. Exposure to this excessive heat can warp the roof sheathing and distort and prematurely age the shingles and roof materials. The heat will radiate down into the living areas and make it more difficult and costly to keep the living space comfortable.
Installing roof ventilation helps regulate the living space temperature, improving the indoor air quality for the life of the occupants
Combats Excess Moisture - Stops Mold and Protects
During the colder months condensation can occur which which can damage insulation, wooden supports and the overall roof structure. It can also lead to the growth of mold and mildew in your attic and in your insulation where it can harm your family’s health, leading to allergies and negative health effects.
Proper ventilation keeps the air moving all year long, which moves the moisture out of the attic before it has a chance to condense.
