The Importance of Ventilation and Insulation to Your Roofing

ventilation and insulation

According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the typical home can lose up to 45% of its overall energy through poor ventilation and insulation. As a homeowner, we know you don’t want energy to simply go to waste. The good news is there is a way to make sure this doesn’t happen. To ensure your roof provides solid protection against energy loss and other problems, enough ventilation and insulation are key.

About Roof Ventilation and Insulation

The condition of your home’s roof will improve through adequate ventilation. In fact, the National Roofing Contractors Association points out that one of the biggest players in a roof system is proper ventilation. Without it, heat and moisture will easily build up in the attic area. This may lead to rotting and damage to various parts. Inadequate ventilation can also result in higher energy costs.

The requirements for proper attic ventilation vary depending on your home or building’s situation. These include exposure to shade, humidity, sun, and other elements. The general ventilation formula is based on the length and width of your home’s attic area. To better understand your ventilation requirements, consult Muth & Company today.
