Memorial Day is almost here and it’s starting to get hot. We know because we spend most of our day on roof tops! You know it because your air conditioner is starting to wake up.
So when your air conditioner is running, do notice that sections of your house are warmer than others? Or maybe too cold in other sections? We see this issue even when a home has a well maintained or brand new A/C unit. Your problem could be caused by poor roof ventilation.
Understanding Roof Ventilation Requirements
The next time you are walking in your neighborhood or out for a run, take a look at all the roofs. You may notice many different types of vents and fans that are utilized to circulate the air inside the roofs. Improper roof ventilation is one of the most common roof issues homeowners face. We often see new homes with all sorts of different ventilation systems. And more ventilation is better; right? Not so fast…
In order to stay cool in the summer, as well as dry and warm in the winter, your roof needs good air flow. Your roof should have the proper type of exhaust AND adequate intake. All too often we see a home with ridge vent, power fans and box vents all on the same roof. Often all those ventilation systems compete with each other causing more harm than good. Proper attic ventilation is critical for your home to operate efficiently. Your roofing contractor should be evaluating your roof’s ventilation requirements. This should be done during any repairs and during installation of a new roof.
