Have you ever climbed into your attic and experienced the feeling of being in a sauna? This may be due to the absence of proper ventilation.

The effects of insufficient attic venting can have short-term and long-term effects. Homeowners can feel a warmer-than-usual home due to the heat from the attic radiating into the living space. Some try to cool their homes using air conditioners, which causes more wear on the A/C units because they must work harder to combat the additional heat, which ultimately results in more electricity consumed and higher electricity bills.

In the long run, the lack of proper attic venting can cause damages to the home’s plywood sheathing and the roofing materials. When the attic heats up, the plywood begins to expand and contract. The plywood can expand, causing the nails to pull out, and when the plywood contracts, the nails remain protruding out. Overtime, the nails will penetrate through the roofing and cause leaks. The shingles itself prematurely can break down and re-roofing would be necessary.
