Ventilation

In the colder winter months, moisture from everyday activities inside the house can enter the roof cavity. Without proper ventilation, this moisture promotes mold and mildew, saturates insulation. In the summer, heat from the roof cavity can radiate down into your living area making the air conditioner work harder to cool your home. If air conditioning ducting runs in the attic, a hot attic will superheat the ducting and the conditioned air inside making the air conditioner less efficient.
Most (but not all) roofs have some form of static ventilation. Static vents or ridge vents will help but generally do not provide sufficient air movement to pull heat and moisture from the attic – especially during the winter or when the ambient air is stagnate.
