Attic ventilation and insulation are the most important, yet often neglected, issues affecting our homes’ wellbeing. It is estimated that 9 out of 10 homes in North America lack proper attic ventilation.
The quality of a home’s insulation is measured by its R-value. The R-value is a rating that indicates the insulation capacity. The higher the R-value, the less air will be transferred between the interior and exterior of your home. Reducing air flow traps heat inside your home and prevents cold air from entering, which limits energy loss and reduces energy costs.
Most homes in Michigan, both new and old, fall short on the Department of Energy’s minimum insulation recommendations of R49 for attic application. Renaissance Roofing, Inc. will assist homeowners with their options to correct attic ventilation and insulation issues.
Homes with a lot of insulation require proper ventilation in order for it to effectively do its job. This includes adding vents in the soffits, roof, or walls of the house. Having proper ventilation allows your insulation to breathe and prevents a build-up of condensation, which will reduce the effectiveness of your insulation. Proper ventilation will also help keep your home cool in the summer and prevent wood rot and peeling paint.
Reduce Your Energy Costs
Insufficient attic ventilation causes heating and cooling systems to run excessively. In warm weather, inadequate ventilation will trap hot air in the attic, causing air conditioning systems to work harder, or leaving your home's interior hotter and less comfortable. In both hot and cold weather, insufficient attic ventilation may cause moisture in the attic to become trapped and condense on the rafters. This condensed moisture can drip down onto the insulation and reduce its effectiveness. Excessive energy costs can result.
