An improperly ventilated attic is one of the leading causes of roof deterioration. When there’s heat buildup in the attic, there’s extra wear and tear on roof materials — from decking to moisture barriers to the shingles themselves. Premature roof failure translates to additional expense for the homeowner, not to mention higher energy bills, particularly when heat can’t escape from the home effectively during summer months.
In recent years, many companies have turned their efforts to improving attic ventilation, and fortunately a variety of products now exist to help improve attic ventilation and extend the life of the roof. Other such products include louvers, ridge vents, and passive turbines. Today we’re able to recommend a number of products to homeowners using our services.
For example, we recently installed a GAF Master Flow Power Vent for a homeowner in Parsippany, NJ. The built-in thermostatically controlled fan prevents excessive heat buildup in the attic. Products like this are among the most effective at removing hot and humid air from your attic. Because the fan is thermostatically controlled, it turns itself on and off automatically depending on temperature conditions in the attic. Aesthetically, the power vent fan blends nicely, as you can see from the photo here. We installed this power vent as part of a new roof installation for the homeowner.
If you have questions about power vents or other attic ventilation products for your home in the Morris County, NJ area, please donâ€™t hesitate to give us a call.
