The Importance of Airflow for Homes

Attic ventilation (such as 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 positioned at:

  • Soffits
  • Roof ridges
  • Knee walls and/or vertical walls

Essentially, airflow goes from low to high in a roof and needs to go out the top rather than accumulate on the underside. Ventilation is needed for this.

If you have an older home in Albany with inadequate ventilation, we can install up-to-date ventilation systems to protect your home from preventable damage.

Types of Home Ventilation Systems for Attics

Contractor installing attic ventilation. Proper attic ventilation consists of intake and exhaust — air must come in and go out.

The U.S. Federal Housing Administration (FHA) recommends at least 1 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.

  1. Exhaust systems are simple to install and can provide reliable ventilation in cold climates.
  2. Supply systems are easy to install and provide significant control over the system and your ability to reduce indoor air pollution.
  3. Balanced systems work in all climates.
  4. Energy recovery/heat recovery ventilators are best for lowering your HVAC costs.

Our team will help you understand the advantages and requirements for each so you can determine the best system for your home.

Benefits of Attic Ventilation

Proper attic ventilation helps prevent moisture buildup by exhausting it through the ridge or exhaust vents. Ventilation is crucial, as it reduces the risk of damage to the structure and helps maintain a comfortable environment throughout the home.

By regulating the temperature in the attic, ventilation also helps protect your roof from damage. Proper ventilation will significantly reduce your energy, maintenance and repair bills, making it a wise investment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Ventilation Impact Indoor Air Quality?

Proper airflow is essential for removing dust, debris, pollen and other allergens from the air. With insufficient ventilation, these particulates circulate through the home rather than being filtered out.

How Much Ventilation Does an Attic Require?

This depends on the size of the attic, but as a general rule, you’ll want 1 square foot of net-free area (NFA) for every 150 square feet of floor space in the attic area. Check with a professional for guidance on determining the NFA of your attic.

Are More Exhaust Vents Better?

No, more vents are not better. It’s a matter of having sufficient ventilation, but not too much. Too many vents can disrupt airflow and diminish the effectiveness of the system.
