Is Your Home Properly Ventilated?
Not Sure How to Tell? Call Patriot Today
If your home is not properly ventilated, it can raise your energy costs and cause drafts and other issues. Old vents should be replaced after 10 years. Proper attic ventilation for your roof is vital for prolonging its life. Not sure how old yours are? Call for an inspection.
What Does an Attic Fan Do?
Attic fans are intended to cool hot attics by drawing in cooler outside air from attic vents (soffit and gable) and pushing hot air outside. However, if your attic has blocked soffit vents and is not well-sealed from the rest of the house, attic fans will suck cool conditioned air up out of the house and into the attic. This will use more energy and make your air conditioner work harder, increasing your summer utility bill. Our professional team can help with the installation or replacement of attic ventilation systems to avert moisture, trapped air, and problems such as condensation and mildew from happening. Let us help you maintain a healthy home by providing our ventilation expertise.
