WHY VENTILATE YOUR ATTIC?
Proper attic ventilation can save energy, increase comfort, and protect your home investment year round. During summer months, without proper insulation and ventilation, heat can quickly build up in your attic space and eventually penetrate into living areas causing your cooling system to work harder and consume more energy. In cooler weather months during rain and snow seasons, air movement prevents moisture from building up in your attic. If left un-addressed, moisture can wreak havoc on your home structure including your attic flooring, wall joists, and roof sheathing resulting in thousands of dollars in repair costs.

To keep your attic cool and dry you need effective attic air circulation. Effective air circulation is accomplished by incorporating both exhaust and intake vents in your attic. Exhaust vents allow attic air to escape. Intake vents allow fresh air to enter your attic space (not your living space). For maximum circulation, adding a powered exhaust fan (attic fan) will significantly improve the air flow by sucking stagnant air out of your attic and replacing it with fresh air that it pulls in through available intake vents.
Many people think that moisture is only a consideration in the humid summer or during raining seasons. But this is not true. In the winter, particularly here in the Midwest where we experience very cold temperatures requiring us to run our heating systems round the clock for months. The warm air that is generated to keep living areas comfortable will eventually rise to your attic. Your attic insulation we help to resist some of that heat, but not all of it. When the hot air rises into your cold attic space and mixes with stagnant cold air, condensation can occur.
We always recommend you install a powered attic fan with a humidstat controller. The humidistat control will monitor the humidity in your attic space and activate the fan to ventilate your attic when humidity reaches a specified level.

IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER
Working on any roof can be dangerous. You should take every safety precaution possible and always use extreme care while working on the roof.
Use common sense while working on the roof. Let someone know you are up there – or better yet, work with a helper.
Use a ladder that is high enough and strong enough for the job you are doing. Secure the ladder at the top and bottom before climbing it.
Use extreme caution when working near power lines, conduits or TV antennas. Never touch them or allow a metal ladder to come in contact with them.
Never start a roofing job in cold or wet weather. Also, allow early morning dew to disappear before beginning your work.
Wear heavy, rubber-soled shoes with a non-skid tread to prevent slips and avoid wearing loose clothing.
If the roof slopes more than a 6" rise for every 12" horizontally, use roof brackets and boards to provide extra footing support. Place all tools and shingles within easy reach and where they will not slide off the roof.
Keep the roof surface clean and free from loose nails and shingles. These can cause you to slip and fall.
Keep people away from below the area where you will be working.
