Memphis Attic Ventilation
Proper Attic Ventilation Could Prevent Costly Damage to Your Home and Valuables in Your Attic
Actions we complete every day and the appliances we use to do so create moisture and heat in our homes. The use of laundry machines, dishwashers, and showers can cause this heat and moisture to rise into your attic, and if the attic is not properly ventilated, there is no way for the heat and moisture to disperse. As a result, it resides in the attic and can cause major damage to the existing carpet, insulation, wires, and wood in the attic. Furthermore, having appropriate ventilation in your attic can prevent heat buildup in the summer months, therefore, reducing the amount of energy consumed by your cooling system as it tries to maintain a comfortable, cool temperature in your home.
Improving Your Attic Ventilation
To improve or create attic ventilation, Conway Services utilizes a variety of soffit and ridge vents to pull air through the attic. The ridge vents allow natural convection or wind to pull air out of the attic. The soffit allows replacement air flow into the attic. The beauty of this system is that it requires no moving parts or energy consumption. In unique cases, we may recommend using additional systems such as air hawks, wind turbines, or other powered or solar-powered vents.
When your attic is properly ventilated, you will likely see improved performance of your insulation and radiant barrier spray. Together, these three pieces of the puzzle provide improved comfort throughout the year and reduced energy consumption in all season, as well as prevent damage to your home.
At Conway Services, we are happy to provide a recommendation for ventilation strategies for your home. We will analyze your current situation and recommend a solution to ensure that your home complies with the building codes for adequate attic ventilation.
