Insufficient attic ventilation can lead to moisture problems during the winter and decreased energy efficiency in the summer

In the summer, good attic ventilation reduces heat buildup and can reduce cooling bills while extending shingle life and allows the heat and moisture to escape, this may also help moderate the temperature in the rest of the home.

In the cold climates moist Warm air seeps into the attic from the living space below and also carries moisture that will condense on rafters or roof sheathing, proper roof ventilationĀ helps to prevent these condensation issues that can cause roof rot and mold and can affect the materials used for insulation. This warm air also concentrates around eves areas, snow melts and the water refreezeā€™s on the cold eaves creating ice dams which are thick ridges of ice that can cause interior water damage
