Keeping Cool In Your Home

Roof Ventilation

Spring is here and Summer is around the corner. With that comes a remarkable upswing in temperatures and humidity. This return to warm weather, for many homeowners, could not arrive soon enough. However, as the temperature increases, there are new roofing issues for any homeowner to consider.

Yet, as things warm up, some find that their houses still remain too warm even with the air conditioner cranked up on high? Why is this? Don’t let the humidity catch you by surprise. There are a few things you can do to make sure that your house does not get overheated. It might be a roofing issue. Before we rule that out, these are a few helpful tips

First, you are going to want to examine your exhaust fans and make sure they are properly ventilated. Next, make sure the vent pipes are correctly installed to reduce build-ups of heat in the attic. Remember, the more heat there is in the attic, the more heat there is in your home. With more heat getting trapped in your home, air won’t circulate properly and you won’t get the most out of your air conditioner. As a result, your home will always be warm and “stuffy”.

Another vent pipe issue: if incorrectly installed, moisture could get trapped in your attic. You will know your vent pipes are having an issue based on the unusual presence of moisture and extreme heat in your attic, which can result in mold in extreme cases. You can repair this issue by rerouting your ducts or vent pipes.
