Why Attic Ventilation Is Important in the Summer

If your attic seems to get as hot as your car’s interior on a warm, sunny day, you probably need better attic ventilation. Cars and attics can reach 140 degrees F and higher, and all that heat doesn’t do either one of them any good. Just as you can crack open a car window to prevent such excessive heat in your car, you can use ventilation in the attic to reduce the heat gain.

Adequate ventilation prevents these problems in your home:

Increasing Ventilation

The first step in learning if your attic needs ventilation is to calculate how large it is and how much is already there. The FHA recommends one square foot of attic ventilation for each 300 square feet of floor space. When inspecting the attic, look for soffit, gable and ridge vents. As you look around, remove anything that blocks them.

If you need more, consider:

Adequate attic ventilation protects your home’s structure from the top down and increases your comfort without adding to your energy bills. To learn more, contact Jackson & Sons, providing trusted HVAC services for eastern North Carolina homeowners.
