There is more to an attic than being a simple storage space for the things that we do not use. It is also a depository of the things that we do not want to throw away for sentimental reasons. Aside from keeping things, however, our attic can also be the key to having a comfortable home. Proper ventilation of this upper floor space could save you quite a few bucks from air-conditioning costs. A home expert, in his article posted on the Professional Inspection Network, enlightens us on how this works:
When an attic is ventilated properly, air circulation occurs naturally through convection that allows air to be drawn in from the outside from lower elevation areas of the attic and exhausted through higher areas in a process of drafting similar to the way a chimney works.
With this system in place, there is a high chance for the air to feel cooler indoors. The nice thing is, instead of spending extra on your electricity bill every month, you could spend your money on other useful things for your home or your family. Furthermore, insulation will also protect your roof:
Providing good attic ventilation in your home will make your house more comfortable to live in, can save you money on your heating and cooling costs, and will help to ensure the life expectancy of your roof structure and roofing materials.
