Attic ventilation (attic fans and vents) helps ensure proper airflow so moisture from daily activities like cooking, showering, laundry and washing dishes doesn’t accumulate in the attic and damage the underside of the roof. Without proper ventilation, a whole host of problems can arise, from wood frame cracking and warping to shingle damage.
Roof and attic ventilation is typically provided at:
Essentially, airflow goes from low to high in a roof, and it needs to go out the top rather than accumulating on the underside. Ventilation is needed for this. Many older Albany homes, especially those built between 1950 and 1970, don’t have ventilation. If you have an older home in Albany with inadequate ventilation, we can install up-to-date ventilation systems to protect your home from avoidable damage.
A proper attic ventilation consists of intake and exhaust—air must come in and also escape. The U.S. Federal Housing Administration (FHA) recommends a minimum of at least one square foot of both intake and exhaust ventilation for every 300 square feet of attic space.
There are four types of whole-home ventilation systems.
Our team will help you understand the advantages and requirements for each to help you determine the best system for your home.
Proper ventilation of your attic helps prevent the buildup of moisture by exhausting it through the ridge or exhaust vents. Ventilation is crucial, as it reduces the risk of damage to the structure, and it helps maintain a comfortable environment throughout the home. By regulating the temperature within the attic, ventilation also helps protect your roof from damage. Proper ventilation will reduce your energy, maintenance and repair bills significantly, which makes it a wise investment for your home.

Proper airflow is essential for removing dust, debris, pollen and other allergens from the air. When ducts are damaged or disconnected, these particulates circulate through the home rather than being filtered out.
This depends on the size of the attic, but as a general rule, you will want 1 square foot of net free area (NFA) for every 150 square feet of floor space within the attic area. Check with a professional for guidance on determining the NFA of your attic.
No, more vents are not better. Again, it is a matter of having sufficient ventilation, but not too much ventilation. Too many vents can disrupt airflow and diminish the effectiveness of the system.
