ROOF VENTILATION CAN SAVE HOMEOWNERS ENERGY COSTS
The importance of adequate roof ventilation is often understated, when it actually is one of the most significant aspects impacting your energy bill. Northwest Roofing has the experience to evaluate your needs and let you know if your current roofing vents are sufficient, or if you would benefit by adding additional vents. Northwest Roofing professionally installs roof vents and soffit ventilation work at affordable prices.
WHY IS VENTILATION SO IMPORTANT?
The best return on investment for protecting the longevity of your house is the proper installation of a balanced ventilation system. Ventilation creates year-round benefits by simply moving air. Heat in unventilated attics may cause temperatures to exceed 150 degrees which can cause damage to shingles and roof sheathing, and possibly radiating to the living area. Ventilation provides conditions that allow air to flow. Moisture build-up can cause rot, mildew, mold, paint blisters, and renders insulation to be ineffective. Electric-powered attic vents use a thermostat and humidistat control to monitor heat and moisture buildup inside the attic. A smart alternative to conventional roof vents, are solar powered attic vents. These vents operate during the day and collects power from the sun to convert into electricity. In turn, this energy operates a high efficiency motor inside the power vent, so there’s no added cost for electricity. Proper ventilation reduces energy bills, winter ice build-up, eliminates mold and mildew, which has been proven to lead to major health problems.
We install turbines, both 12″ and 14″ sizes, slant vents, and ridge vents, in addition to both electric and solar power vents. Depending on the roof structure, we can determine which vents will benefit your home. We will also make sure that your soffit vents are up to date. Ask about a vent upgrade at the time of contact signing with a re-roof.
Remember, soffit vents are the intake, roof vents are the exhaust; just like your car, one without the other will not work. Call or Contact Us today!
